I have lived in MD for 32 yrs; 19 of that in Montgomery Co., the last 13 in Calvert Co. I don’t 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.

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.

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?

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.

MD is gun unfriendly

I've been a gun owner in MD for about 5 years. They really make it hard to be a firearms enthusiast.

That is the idea. The socialists in Annapolis want to keep down the number of people with guns by doing what they can to discourage you with onerous paperwork requirements. When you catch on, you can quickly weave yourself through their wickets and get what you want.

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!
