Completely legal to transport your standard capacity mags into MD. You just cannot buy, sell, transfer or make them here.

That doesn't help answer your query about driving to pick up mags, but maybe provides some context?
Who cares about the serial number "linking" to the magazine capacity?

If you purchase a handgun that has greater than 10 round mag capacity at an out of state gun shop, the FFL in MD will either give you a gun with no mag(s) or swap out with mag(s) that have a 10 round or less capacity.

Having an out of state gun shop hand you the mags as you leave the store before they ship the gun to MD is no different than driving to an out of state gun shop and buying standard capacity mags.

I would recommend 2A Sales in Jessup for anything.


I would also recommend that you look at something other than Bersa, but that's just me...

Most of that will depend on where you live or are willing to travel. I usually use Tyler Firearms (Halethorpe/Arbutus) because they are close to my office and easy to deal with.

Engage Armament in Rockville should be able to pin mags and probably 2A in Jessup. I dealt with both of these shops as well and highly recommend any of them.

I have heard good things about the 380 version and wanted something with a bit more kick but less than .40. I have heard good reviews about their guns. Why do you not like it? Any bad experience or bad reviews? I am still doing research on alternate budget 9mm. Was looking at LC9s, M&P Shield and even Highpoint 9. Already own Glock so just looking for something reliable but on pricey. (is that a paradox?) lol

I really liked the 380 version but with all the hassle of trying to find it and or wait, look like I may have to just move on.
I have a bi-tone version of that sitting on my shelf now.

Not a 10-rounder, so you would have to get mags in top of it, and as some noted, delaers, us included, don't just swap them out as we generally get stuck with the 10+ rounders.

Come by or call if interested.

Sorry for being a douche, but we get a shit ton of posts like yours as a new member first post (fishing for illegal ideas???) and VERY FEW follow through with additional questions about how to legally do things. You sir, appear to be a legitimate guy- sorry for my pessimism.

Are there really that many people that come on here looking for illegal ways of doing things? -I don't want to know them, I'm just asking.

You would be surprised. The mods do a great job taking care of this issue, so many don't see the issues.
