Online ammunition sales ban in MD?

I tried to order some BHA match .223 from Midway today (as I have done several times before) and when I got to checkout, it said state or city law prevents shipping ammunition to the address specified....wtf? Did I miss something? Anyone know what's up?

That's a new one to me.

I did an online check for an ammo purchase last night and when I entered the zip code it said - "We are able to ship to your location."

Oh no maybe you're on "double secret probation".

Guns and now ammo ... I think the Republik of Maryland must have scared another online vendor.

If they can scare a company as large as Midway, then we're all boned.

Just ordered a few rounds from CTD and the order went through without a hitch. Must just be Midway. I'll be calling them this week to find out what the issue is..... My rifle really likes the 69 grain SMK and BHA makes good product. I need my BHA target ammunition.....

This comes up every couple of years... I'll bet you tried to ship to an address in MoCo. If I recall correctly, for a time MoCo tried to ban having ammo shipped to a county address. It may have gone to court and was struck down. Unfortunately vendors heard when it was put into effect but never got the word it was no longer an issue. Some will ship and some still will not. Try another vendor. I suspect you will find more than a couple who will ship. I think I have the story correct. No to be rude but try a search on ammo and shipping....

Remember... .223 is evil. This week.

You can call Midway and ask them to clarify or else order from Ammunition To Go. I have an ammo order from Ammunition To Go due to be delivered to my house on Monday.

BTW, I order ammo from Midway quite a bit. No problem here.

Problem solved. My DOB somehow was changed to blank so it wouldn't ship until I put an appropriate DOB in my profile. Just submitted order without issue.

I sorted it out, but thanks for the feedback.
