I remember one of the ridiculous laws from that time was that I couldn't buy a handgun from an FFL dealer because I wasn't 21, but it was perfectly legal for me to buy from a private citizen.
The age requirement (21) comes from Federal Law. IT applies only to FFL dealers, and became the law in 1968.

Being able to buy (at any age) from a private individual is a matter of individual state law. In general, NY laws are as strict, or stricter than Federal law.
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.
