first time shotgun buyer

Can a MD resident buy a shotgun from a VA gunstore? Is it cash and carry?

Yes you can. They are cash and carry

Unless they are banned. If I remember right that is a semi auto with a folding stock or with a rotary magazine (aka, Streetsweeper)

As long as it's legal to own in Maryland you're GTG.

Thanks guys.

Now, where to shoot with #4 or #8 shot? I looked at the NRA and Machinegun Nest and they only allow buckshot.

#4 (if buck) would typically require a local outdoor club.

#8 is typically used in clay sports so trap and skeet and such.

Not a lot of places will let you shoot anything but rifled slugs. A couple of the indoor places will allow buckshot. Pretty much private club or nothing.

Of course if you just want to shoot birdshot in the #9-7.5 range, any place for trap, skeet or sporting clays. Also you are generally going to need a 23"+ barrel to be allowed to shoot there.

That has been my dilemma, I'd like to go (outdoors) to put some buckshot through my shotguns, but I can't find any place that will allow me to (I'd wager Delmarva might let me, but I haven't looked in to it yet as they are 1 1/2hrs from me)

I content myself with shooting a lot of trap and a little bit of sporting clays. I'd like to get something more HD oriented (barrel or full shotgun), but I'd have no place to shoot it, except with slugs off a bench, which SUCKS

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the same rule applies for any long guns that aren't banned. And purchases can be made nationwide.

That sucks because I am getting a tactical shotgun with 18.5 inch barrel.

Probably no trap or skeet for you anywhere.

I think most of the indoor ranges will allow you to shoot buckshot. That may be about it unless you've got access to a friend's (or your own) backyard range.

It is 50% of the reason I may never get a real tactical shotgun. I would love to find a 23 or 24" barrel for my 870 that can take a ghost ring sight, smooth bore with interchangeable chokes. Doesn't need a pistol grip.

I think you can shoot shotguns at MD DNR ranges. Myrtle Grove has a shotgun area but the range is closed for repairs right now.

The last time I was at MSAR they were alright with birdshot on their indoor ranges. I patterned my turkey guns. This was a couple of years ago, though.

I am actually rethinking now if I am still getting a shotgun.

I emailed MSAR about this and got an email back saying that shotguns with 18.5 inch barrel and #4 and #8 shots are permitted.

Sharpshooters in Lorton, VA, lets you shoot bird shot at their indoor range.

Heritage Training and Shooting (indoor) in Buckeystown, MD, just South of Frederick, allows everything for shotgun.

Pretty much at Delmarva if it's legal to own in Md you can shoot it. Just leave your bazooka at home

I've been to Delmarva once and saw some guys shooting shotguns. But it is a 2 hour drive for me.

What if I have training solids for my bazooka? Good to go?

I'll keep that in mind if my big day trip to Delmarva works out. I might slip some milk jugs and 00 in to my range bag(s) to go with. I was planning to do some sporting clays as it was along with taking my AR for the range.

Has to be legal in the state of purchase and the state of residence of the purchaser.

So MD res cannot buy AR (non-HBAR) out of state (not legal in state of residence of purchaser), and VA resident cannot buy an AR (non-HBAR) in MD (not legal in state of transaction).
