    Mossberg Shockwave 590 14\" 20 GA 5+1 Mossberg Shockwave 590 14\" 20 GA 5+1
  • So a family member of mine would have to purchase this from an ffl for me, so being 18 I wanted to know if this would be allowed to be in my posession for home defense. Like you would with a normal shotgun for an individual under 18. And i live in missouri if that helps.

  • Brock, a family member cannot purchase it for you but for them self as it will be registered to them. You can most certainly use it in the home for self defense. Someone else purchasing this for you would be considered a Straw Purchase which is a no no. It’s a federal offense to knowingly purchase a firearm for someone else. In the U.S, a purchaser of a firearm from a FFL who lies about the identity of the ultimate possessor of the gun can be charged with making false statements on a Federal Firearms Transaction Record.

  • Brock, Check with your local law enforcement officers about your possession of this firearm. No problem for home defense. If you can shoot it you can protect your family in your home. Here is what Mossberg says about the purchase. . How old do you have to be to buy a Mossberg Shockwave? The Mossberg Shockwave is a firearm, not a long gun. Federal Law requires purchasers of firearms to be 21 years of age. Your relative can't really buy a firearm for you. He can buy this firearm for him. If you get your hands on it????
