Q. can you be under the age of 21 and own a hand gun. handed down to you?


Dear Juneau Resident,

You can own it but you can't legally carry it concealed. There is an affirmative defensive if the person is actually engaged in hunting or fishing activities and carrying the handgun for personal protection.

For more details you can read Alaska Statute 11.61.220, Misconduct Involving Weapons in the fifth degree.
