As long as you own a regulated firearm, you’re good to go. There is only one Trooper that processes them, so be patient. The letter will come. Most people we help to complete the affidavit and notarized it take about 7-10 days, but others have taken weeks. It’s all depends on busy the Trooper is.

Mine took about three weeks from dropping in the mailbox to receiving the note of approval back in the mail.

Why does one need a regulated firearm "in The System" to be a collector?

Perhaps you had a collection before there was a system.
Perhaps you moved into the state and brought your collection with you before FS2013.
Perhaps you collect unregulated long guns.

I know it is Maryland and nothing they do makes sense.

Recently got mine, late March I think. Had several 77rs throughout the years, took 3-4 weeks, if memory serves, to get the letter.

I'm not sure the particulars of the old law that gave us the designated collectors status. It may have required that you have firearms that MD knows about, what I have seen is this is what the MSP seems to follow.

I will give you your point about a previous collection but there will be fewer and fewer that this applies to as the years go by.

The designated collectors has nothing to do with FSA2013. This has been around since long before that travesty.

If you moved into maryland, then you are required to register all of your handguns, hence you will be known to the MSP and it should not be a problem to get the designated collectors status.

Designated collectors has no real effect on long guns since they are not regulated by Maryland. it only effects the Maryland regulated firearms.

Good points thou. I always feel that if it makes any sense then it cannot be the way it works in MD.

Before FS2013 if you moved to Maryland there was no requirement to register your handguns so there is no telling how many collections were here.

There are probably more ways to collect firearms without including any that are Maryland "Regulated" a C&R collection for example. So in effect the state will force you to purchase a regulated firearm, that now includes the cost and training requirements of obtaining an HQL, and be entered into a database in order to receive Designated Collector status and be able to transport some or all of your collection for display because I am sure they would argue that one can not be a "Bona Fide Collectors of Firearms" and not have a Designated Collector recognition from the Maryland State Police.

If you never bought a handgun in Maryland, why would you need an exemption from "one per month?"

You don't need an exemption until your second or third purchase within 30 days.

Not really unreasonable they expect to see at least one handgun purchase.

Oh not this nonsense again.

The only purpose of the Designated Collector status is to exempt the holder from "one handgun per month." That's all it is.

It has nothing to do with handgun transport.

The idea that it serves any, any, ANY other legal purpose is nothing but internet bullshit. The State Police and the Attorney General have no such idea.
