Purchasing a firearm is always an exciting time. Whether it's your first firearm or tenth, take the time to make sure you have all the required documents.
These handgun requirements include the purchase of a handgun, pistol or revolvers. Keep in mind, some firearms which may look like a rifle are classified as a pistol based on their barrel size or type of brace - these firearms also fall under these same requirements.
