Primary Arms Screwing Over Ban State Residents

In order to feed my addiction, I rented a PO Box in Virginia for receiving mags.

Well, Primary Arms had a sale on Magpul D60 drums so I purchased to with the shipping address being my Virginia po box. THEY CANCELLED MY ORDER BECAUSE MY BILLING ADDRESS IS MARYLAND! I called customer service who, though polite, said that they had instructions from the Maryland state police to not sell to anybody with a Maryland billing address. Last I checked the MSP has no jurisdiction over USPS, Texas, or Virginia.

For the record, this is not the law, and plenty of other online retailers ship anywhere because it doesn't ****ing matter what your billing address is.

I just ordered three drums from a better Gun Shop (who have an even better price) and there customer service rep said this was not an issue. Last time I do business with Primary Arms.

Sorry, I know I'm new. Rant over.

Wow! I didn't expect to hear this about Primary Arms tbqo. I have had this happen with other online retailers in the past. Specifically after the Newtown shooting.

PO box sounds like a hassle and add'l expense. Next weekend (17-18-19) is the chantilly gun show, repeated at least quarterly. Generally there are tons of various mags there at pretty competitive prices. Get you some there. You really can't blame PA and others from being scared away from doing business with Marylanders. I'm sure they did the math, and the lost revenue/profit is a tradeoff for them vs getting and staying up to speed on MD laws (and other anti-2A states).

30 round magazines are standard capacity.

Here we go again.

Dr.NRA... no offense to you, but there has been a rash of relatively new members on the site all discussing how to bypass MD law. Not a good idea to discuss this sort of thing in open forum. We all know what the law says and what it doesn't... no need to feed fuel to the fire of further restrictions.

Welcome to the group, BTW.

Another low post count member with another idea how to get around MDSP recent guidance on magazine shipping.

IDK why one needs a PO box when there are quite a few places just over the border in 'Murica. My workaround is called a car.
