Hat's Off to MSI

So last Spring a representative (maybe the president?) from MSI came to speak at our gun club meeting.

"How many people here have a Top Secret Security Clarence?"
"How Many people here were a victim of the 2015 OPM data breach?"
"Did you know that you can get a Maryland Handgun Permit?"

Armed with this info, myself along with a guy I work with applied for and received our MD Handgun permit. I just got mine today (my buddy a few months ago). If it had not been for MSI, I would never have known and never attempted to get my CCW.

Needless to say, I am a member.

Are you saying you both received permits because of your top secret clearance or the data breach?

Unrestricted?

We fell under both categories; so I can't say that JUST one or the or the other works. But those quotes are what I was told.

restrictions:
"Valid while maintaining employment as an active reserve civilian or contractor employee for the DoD. (MD ONLY) Not valid where firearms are prohibited by law."

All I can say is that I am not a rich man but I have thrown a few dollars there way before with no regrets. And I'll probably do so again. We need folks like them fighting these uphill battles in MD.

Reading threads like this still put a smile on my face. I was the guy who first brought it up and this board laughed hysterically at me. Then the night of my HPRB hearing, I was called, "the nights entertainment." While everyone was just joking, it did feel good to be the one who put this theory to the test and get issued an unrestricted permit as a result. Im glad others are using it and MSI is now telling people about it.

BTW: MSI just sent out an email update about various efforts that included a request for donations. The link takes you to a paypal page. As I noted in another thread, the big red donate button on their site is not working, so it may be best to link to their paypal page if you want to donate.

I was there, in Pikesville. I hope you are doing well.
