Age Restrictions

While safe, supervised and controlled shooting is fun for everyone I do not offer my services to anyone under the age of 21 except on a rare case-by-case basis. The reason for this is that all Title II, Class 3 firearms are only able to be owned and used by those over the age of 21. Again, I do work on a case-by-case basis on setting up a trust for family members who wish to have those under the age of 21 but over the age of 18 act as a co-Trustee. This is a rare exception and only done on a case-by-case basis. 

As for Title I firearms, the common firearms you can buy at the store without special approval from the ATF, I am happy to advise any adult (18 years or older) on their rights and responsibilities when it comes to weapons  ownership and the law. 

Gun owners who have children or who know that children will be around their weapons have a responsibility to ensure that the weapons are kept safe and locked away. Additionally, I encourage all my clients with children to ensure that they are educated on the dangers associated with these weapons and when they are an appropriate age, the safe handling and use of the weapons in a hunting or sporting environment under close supervision. 

Additionally, ensuring that the collection is kept safe and secure for them when they reach adulthood is a priority in my estate planning advisory capacity. Please use the form below if you have any questions on this.
