    He didn't ask about carrying it here. He asked about building it, transporting it to VT, and going to the range while there.

    The OP should wait. When he becomes an adult he'll want a Sig anyway.
    Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.

    He can legally possess AND carry in VT without a permit.

    Is there anyone to suggest that our current SOE would interfere with FOPA when involving an unlicensed individual who is not a prohibited person?
    You are correct, as usual, but the legal path is VERY narrow, and the consequences for straying off the path are severe, and include the permanent lifetime loss of all gun rights.

    If he lives in Philadelphia, he can't even open carry it out the door. He can't drive with it almost anywhere except to the range. If he completes an 80% build, he'll have an un-serialized gun that looks to most cops like an illegal gun (it's not) carried by a kid who can't possibly have an LTCF (which is true). And if he takes it across state lines, he'll have to deal with the cops of other states, like NY, who have little to no respect for the exemptions of FOPA.

    He could inherit a handgun, but most relatives will frown at that request.

    He could be gifted one by a parent or grandparent, but if he fronts them the money, it becomes straw purchase.

    If he were my client (he's not), I'd advise him to wait 3 years. Buying the mags now is good advice. Pay cash.

    Join the Marines. Go shoot a bunch of guns. When you get out you can buy whatever you want.

    I guess I stand corrected, I thought you couldn't do that.

    Any reason his parents haven't gifted him a gun already?

    Technically they can't take his money and buy it for him but thats different from a gift. However your question isn't far off the mark. Maybe the don't own a gun and don't want one in their house.
