    In most states if not all you need to be at least 21 years of age to buy a handgun.
    So without more information you have about a 3 year wait.
    Use the time to do some research.

    What state are you in? In most states you have to be 21 to buy handguns but I believe there are some states where you can buy handguns at 18. If you want a good 9mm I would recommend the Canik, its an inexpensive gun and from my experience very reliable.

    As I read the law handgun purchase is a federal law of 21.
    Possession under 21 with certain exceptions temporary transfer of handguns and handgun ammo for special activities including
    employment, ranching and farming target practice and hunting.

    You must be 21 to buy a handgun or receiver from a FFL dealer

    Feds make no law on how old you have to be to buy from a private persons. State law is a different story and varies

    Buy a AR15 or the like while you can would be my suggestion

    No worry about being 21 to purchase at a FFL then

    The Minimum Age to Purchase & Possess in Ohio.

    Ohio law prohibits the purchase of a firearm by any person under age 18, and the purchase of a handgun by any person under age 21. Ohio law also generally prohibits selling or furnishing a firearm to a person under age 18, or a handgun to a person under age 21.
    The difference between a Socialist and a Communist is that the Socialist doesn't have all the guns yet.
