Montana imposes no specific age restrictions on the purchase or possession of firearms, though Montana’s child access prevention law generally prohibits a parent, guardian, or other person having charge or custody of a minor child under age 14 from allowing the child to carry or use in public any firearms.1

Federal age restrictions also apply.

See our Minimum Age to Purchase & Possess Firearms policy summary for a comprehensive discussion of this issue.
