Am I the only Maryland member? Probably because our gun laws super restrictive.
Good to see another MD member. Where in MD are you?
3-5 yrs from now I will be selling my home and moving from MD. Probably out west.
I'm in Aberdeen in Harford County.
Hey i might be moving to MD and I am looking at buying a handgun how hard is it to buy one and how bad are the rules there. I am trying to decide between moving to MD or Virginia. Thanks for any info you could provide
It's not bad buying a gun in Maryland, but if I had choice to move in either state. Virginia would be my choice. Gun laws are better.
i'm glad i bought my gun while i'm here in WV at school, heard its much smoother than MD. i'll be moving back to good ole' anne arundel county in may, hopefully starting an internship somewhere local to that.
New member here from California, Maryland, located in Saint Mary's County in southern Maryland. As far as gun laws go here in Maryland, I can tolerate the handgun and assault rifle laws, but I wish we had a "shall issue" law for CCW.
It would be nice if there was a place to go shooting, besides maryland small arms range and mrytle grove
With regards to buying a "regulated firearm" (handgun or "assault weapon")in Maryland, check out the new requirements for a mental health check here http://www.myguns.net/ . Think carefully - I can see bad things in your future if the MSP denies your purchase. Just my 2 cents. If I were thinking of buying a handgun, I would do so before moving to Maryland. If I had a choice between VA and MD, I would pick VA regardless of the traffic. 5 years and I'm outta here.
For a range in southern MD, here's our club's website: http://www.stcharlessc.com/ .
rfawcs Hey i saw your website for the range you go to..is there other ways to get a sponsor for the range...I am looking for other places to go beside's MSAR. Thanks for any info you can provide.
Any Maryland members still around?
Yeah, Carroll county here. Burbs of Baltimore.
I moved from Maryland to Florida. Am I happy.....You bet.
Looks like there's quite a few of us here. I'm living in AA county
now but am originally from Bel Air.
I spent 2 horrible years in Columbia MD, over regulated, unfriendly people. Over all, bad place to live. I ma very happy in Texas Now. I feel bad for all in MD that cannot leave.
I'm from Cecil County. The gun laws aren't completely awful. Although there is the new medical record check that can quickly go bad. You can't get a permit unless you have had multiple verifible death threats made against you or you hold some jobs. Some people that get them have time of day restrictions put on them or circumstance restriction. I would definitly go to VA. I'm only about a mile from PA and hope to move there someday. I don't understand people choosing a nanny state.
i too am from Columbia. I just found out the other day that even bb guns are illegal to own here in Columbia!! I can't even go out to my back yard and do some soda can plinking with my GAMO without being arrested, paying a fine and having my bb gun confiscated!! I SOOOOOO cannot wait to move outta this state back to good 'ol PA.
HarCo Maryland here!
Abingdon in Harford County.
I'am in Joppa Maryland. Just retired and have the same problems with the MD guns laws. Looking to move to Del. for the taxes and CCW.
I have lived in MD for 32 yrs; 19 of that in Montgomery Co., the last 13 in Calvert Co. I donít have any trouble getting what I want even with the onerous paperwork. I have gotten myself designated as a Collector and it obviates the one gun a month. Since retiring 5 yrs ago and getting another job, I have a lot more disposable income to put toward my handgun purchases, but even with that, I have fallen behind the one gun a month requirement set by our former governor.
Another Md guy here. I'm on the Eastern Shore (Easton) If not for having a son living with ex I would have moved from this friggin state along time ago.
I live in Damascus (MoCo)>
