Hi everyone. my name is alex. i ship off MCRD (USMC basic) aug 17. but in the time i have left i want to own a handgun. I understand that one must be of 21 years of age to buy a gun. 18 years of age IF the gun is bought in a privite deal or inherited. right? so if an 18 year old can own a gun can he carry one if "traveling" If that is true.... can he carry one while riding a motorcycle "traveling"?????? And yes i'm 18. fresh outa high school Marine Recruite :patriot:

recklessly carries on or about his or her person a handgun, illegal
knife, or club if the person is not:

(1) on the person ’s own premises or premises under the
person ’s control; or
(2) inside of or directly en route to a motor vehicle

A motorcycle is a "motor vehicle" so as long as its out of sight while your on your bike your ok. - Saddle Bags
