Designated Collector Regulations?

Quote:
The Maryland Designated Collector (MDC)" status is a MARYLAND status that allows a person to purchase more than one "regulated firearm" (Handguns or "Assault Rifles") in a month within the state of Maryland. You can ask a local dealer for the form. It needs to be certified and mailed to the Maryland State Police. You should receive the status in about a month.
This is basically all I've seen so far about MDC regulations. I just finished trying to find more info on the MSP site, which was worthless.

The reason I'm looking is that I heard someone yesterday say there is an annual limit of 12 regulated firearms per year even with the MDC, never heard that, but would sure like to know it it's true or if there are any other restrictions.

Anyone know, or point me to the right place to look?

There is no 12 regulated firearm limit.

Now there's a rule I didn't know about. Interesting considering the wait times of months people are having.

I'm reading this to mean once your properly filled out application is in the mail you are a collector.

Good point. I got mine within a couple weeks through the mail but that was a few years ago.

Do you have the fax # you can post?

Yeah, but that's once you've been "designated by the Secretary". That could be the backlog...

No.

I mailed my form in last August 14, and my Designated Collector status was dated December 19. I didn't actually receive the letter until late January.

During the period, I bought a couple of regulated firearms, and played it safe by answering "no" to the question, "Are you a Designated Collector?" (or however it's phrased).

Turns out I was right to play it safe.


Anyway, it looks like MSP is guilty of violating their own rules. Maybe I should sue them for mental anguish. Who knows how many ill-advised impulse purchases they prevented me from making?

nice. what is the mystery fax number?

also, do you have to have your Fed C&R BEFORE applying? I see it listed on the form as item B, but wasn't sure if it was a AND or OR for A and B.

The C&R is not needed, but if you have it you can use it as one of the reasons.

I played it safe too. I got a call from someone at MSP who said I had been approved but I waited until I had the letter in my grubby little paw before I tried claiming the collector designation.

I was approved in mid December, but still have not received my letter. I have an email from the office who approved me stating you can start buying now and any dealer who has a question is free to contact me.

I bought 3 stripped lowers at once a few weeks later with no issues. I also picked up a Glock 23 a week or so later. Again, no issues.
