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.
