    Possibly going through Maryland in June....

    looking for info from the Marylanders out there.

    I am not worried about VA or PA as my NC CHL is honored there. Just need to know how to transport my EDC through the state. I will likely be taking 81 all the way up from home (King, NC) to Mechanicsburg, PA. (as plans are set now).

    I checked handgunlaw.us and the other site for info, and will be contacting some authorities in that area as well.

    rstickle can possibly add info for you but IIRC it's got to be - gun in locked case, ammo separate and different location... maybe even too no loaded mags.

    Add to this - supposedly with gun on board in transit - no stops for gas, food or anything else.

    Believe it or not, MD also is supposed to know about the 2A. - just interprets differently when it comes to carry.

    Try and adjust your route so you cross MD maybe a shade west of otherwise intended - so you only have to cross the real narrow bit! I 81 will about do that.

    yep. unloaded gun in trunk, mags and any extra ammo up front somewhere and you're solid according to mdsp. however,they did mention that a magazine in the glove compartment may cause unwanted attention if you need to get registration or whatever, but is not illegal. also advised to tell officer if pulled over and explain how the weapon is stored for good measure. hope your trip through md is quick and uneventful.

    also, the trooper did not say it had to be in a locked case

    Don't forget to refrain from any behavior that will attract the attention of the local law. In short, behave yourself. No lead footing.

    Chris pretty much covered it. Even going to the range I keep the guns and unloaded mags in the range box or bag, locked. I usually put the ammo in it factory box (and a bag for ease of carrying) on the floor behind the drivers seat. The no stop thing is the only other oddity. According to MD law transport is supposed to be non stop between place of purchase or range and home.

    If you have a trunk that's where I'd store the guns, I have an Outback...... So no trunk!

    Yeah,....see this is where I have the same problem. We have a Pacifica, basically a station wagon. No real place to lock it up. I figured I might run ito a problem with MD.

    As for lead footing, I have two kids. At best I am doing ten over and that is if there is nothing else on the road. I know VA likes out of state plates, so five is the max that I go over out of state.

    I thought about wasting my money and applying for a MD non-res, but even if I got it, I would only go to MD maybe once a year (have some family down on the Bay), so the cost isn't really worth it.

    Thanks for all the help guys.

    The saving grace, if you stay on I-81, is that it is a very short stretch. I have been up thru there many times and its not too bad. Never have been stopped in Md. By the way, it was good to finally meet you this morning. Let me know when you want to go to Calibers to shoot.

    Well I'm sure it would be a waste of money, and I'd have to check, I'm not even sure they issue any non-resident permits. (Heck its a waste of money to attempt a resident permit without being a politician or having a lot of money to transport regularly.)

    Looks like they have resident and non-resident licenses.
