You can still get a handgun but you will need to have a HQL to pick it up. Sorry.

Not too late if you want to be part of a class action lawsuit.

We are now officially in "The Infringement Zone"...

Gonna be a lot of surprised people looking for solid information...

HQL = Handgun Qualification License

After Oct 1 you will need an HQL to receive a handgun in Maryland.
Their is no way to get one right now, so there is a BAN on the purchase of handguns as of Oct 1. Really a ban on them as of right now, because if you buy it, you cannot take it home without the HQL.

After Oct 1 (in MD) you need to be finger printed and take a class. There are exceptions but that's the simple answer.

You'll need the new Handgun Qualification License.
People who bought their handguns only a few days ago do not need it because they are picking up their gun before October 1st. You cannot pickup a handgun prior to that date from today, forward.

If you buy one today, you most likely wouldn't be able to take possession of it until the end of October or early November, provided you've taken a training course approved by the state, gotten fingerprinted, and paid a fee of $50 to the state for the application.
