Hello from Ellicott City!
What is a good location to find an understandable summary of the MD gun laws?
I was of the understanding that all you needed was the MSP gun safety course in order to purchase a handgun. What is a permit needed for?
Maryland Gun Laws - What are the Gun Laws in Maryland? it pretty much covers everything.
Does anyone have experience getting a permit to carry in MD?
Hello fellow "Free Staters",
I live in the super-socialist town of Columbia. Seemed like a nice place (i.e., low-cost home) in 1975 but has gotten "progressively" worse. All it is now is rules, rules and more rules. I grew up in Rockville in Montgomery county. Believe it or not, I actually joined a gun club in my (public) junior high school back in the early 60's. Montgomery county has really changed over the years! I used to hunt with my grandfather, uncle and cousin in northern Virginia. Amazingly, that area is now filled with luxury homes!
I haven't been shooting in a couple of decades. I own a couple of 22 rifles; a bolt-action and a semi-automatic. Both are Marlins and had a lot of fun with them. I also own a WWII Japanese 6.5 mm Arisaka. I want to get back into shooting now that I am retired and have time to do it.
I'm about to purchase my first handgun; probably a Browning Buck Mark. I just found a great gun shop in a town about 4-5 miles away. I'm really excited about that as I plan to visit there often.
I've been a gun owner in MD for about 5 years. They really make it hard to be a firearms enthusiast.
I just joined, and live in Frederick.
Do a lot of teaching in the area, and have access to two private ranges.
You are NOT alone, even in this anit-gun state!
