Hello, I'm 17 i'll be 18 in a few weeks and Im looking into being a gun owner. I'm mildly experienced with firearms, mostly fireing pistols on ranches and whatnot. Well Im not too sure on the legallitys and such on owning a shotgun in Texas. I've been told its legal to own a shotgun at 18 without a gun license, is this true? And what should I do as far as starting off owning a shotgun, It'll be used mostly for home protection and target shooting like once a week or so. And what would be a good shotgun to start out with for a first time shotgun shooter?
