Non resident, stationed in maryland

I am active duty military, and am a resident of florida. I plan on retaining that voting through florida, keeping my vehicles registered in florida, and moving back to florida once this very involuntary duty station is over.

I have Several AR's, and a AK47
I have 3 handguns

My real question is if im a nonresident being stationed in Maryland am I better off storing my guns out of state till i leave? Less than ideal but I really dont want to get arrested. All my AR's have aftermarket match barrels so I dont know how the H-Bar clauses applies, because they also have collapseable stocks, muzzle breaks(not flashhiders), non are fixed magazines, and all have rails but no bayonet lug.

This is my opinion and what i would do for me , i would safely store them in Florida your primary residence . Avoid Maryland at all cost , they would love to make an example out of you .

If you owned the rifles prior to October 2013, they are fine to bring in. If you got them later, the ARs are ok to bring in if the barrels are marked HBar or advertised or described as HBar. If you got the AK after October 2013, you can’t have it in the state. The handguns are ok to bring in.


Just out of curiosity, what barrels do you have on the ARs?

IF you owned the ARs and AKs before Oct 2013 then you are ok.

If not, then leave them at home. Pistols should be ok though. (And the ARs if they have "hbar" barrels)

That said, I am not a lawyer. You should definitely get the opinion of a lawyer.

The barrels are match barrels I bought through the local gunsmith, I shoot around 15K rounds a year so I dont remember what barrels we went with this time but i believe they are not marked Hbar, they have surefire socom breaks on them. I am more than willing to simply buy new barrels and have those put on the guns to bring them in. I am fine with leaving the AK all guns were bought after 2013

AK is a no-go then.

Rebarrelling the ARs is ok.

Are any of the ARs pistols?

Or throw an SBA3 on it? Make it a pistol. Not sure how this applies if the barrel is 16”

Wrong, you can't make a rifle into a pistol. Once a rifle, it is always a rifle.
