If I were to set aside Constitutional issues and pull a number from somewhere, I'd probably pick 21, with some kind of procedure to waive the requirement if you can show you are living on your own / self supporting / etc.
That's the same reasoning that anti gun people use to justify a lot of the laws they want to pass.
