Coming up on 8 weeks myself, which I understand is typical.

Never mind the law says that have to get back to us in 14 days...

Yes it is Freds, but I am learning as I go on.
Fred's?! See if you can get your money back. Find someplace else.

Don't they have the ammo log as well. Truly going above and beyond what is required by law. Try keepshooting.com or All Pawn next time. You will get much better service and they will help guide you through the process. Freds got me once but never again. I think we all learned a lesson from them at one point in our life.

Then you can purchase as many as you want as often as you want, with the standard 7-day waiting period before picking up each purchase.
It took me about 2 months to get my approval letter in.

It took 10 weeks for the paperwork on my first handgun to comeback clean in 93, but I got my designated collectors letter inside a week when I sent that in.

It only took me 2 weeks from Ron's (in Dunkirk) to get my AR lower paperwork back. It was my first firearm purchase in Maryland, and they guided me through all of the hoops really easily. I was pretty upset to take the online course, but I figured, hey, since all of the criminals robbing convenience stores are taking the course (not to mention MUST have good reasons to carry concealed) I would just shut up and bear the course myself. Super helpful folks over there. Their firearms prices are a little steep and so is their ammo cost (I like to buy in bulk over the web). I paid 50 bucks for the lower transfer which wasn't bad though.

No. I even called the NRA-ILA. They called the MDSP, and then told me "Can't help ya mate"

Good to know thanks!

If anyone happens to have the law I'd love to print it out.

Can you send a collector form before you ever purcahse a firearm in MD? Just curious since I want to purchase several firearms before the end of the year.

In the past the MSP had been wrongfully denying designated collector applications if you haven't already purchased a regulated firearm.They weren't supposed to and were called on it. They started following the law after that and issuing the letters.
Go ahead and apply and you can always call them to request that they process your application if it doesn't come through.Nothing in the law states that you need to have already purchased anything.

FFL-wise, you can do much better than Fred's, still going to make a drive (since there isn't sh@t in Calvert Co.) - but it'll be less $ than Fred's.
New member here - wish I would have found this forum prior to purchasing through Fred's. Very expensive, had to special order gun due to being out of stock (10 days waiting so far when they told me less than a week) and they act as if you are bothering them if you inquire about anything. Should have went to Keepshooting.com as others have mentioned already.

Thanks to all for the tips about the Reg. Firearms Collector Application!! Got it filled out to get notarized.

Two of the last three regulated firearms I purchased, the FFLs actually filled in the paperwork for me and all I had to do is sign and date. That's what I call good service. I just did paperwork on Friday and the FFL has me do it.

$100 for a transfer and most reviews are 1 star. This looks like a good place to avoid.

Fred's is also notorious as one of a small number of stores which cooperate with the State Police's extra-legal rogue "ammo log" program. Do a search here on "ammo log".

They actually mention that on their Web page. Scroll down to "POSTED".

you didn't mess up, the sales guy did. he should look over everything after you fill it out.
