The basic requirement during transport is the handgun must be unloaded and in an enclosed case or enclosed holster with the ammunition separate from the handgun AND you must be transporting the handgun to or from the locations listed in the statute.

If I travel to a far away range in rural MD, spend 2 days there, what happens if police stops me on my drives between hotel/restaurants and the range?

Also, is lending and borrowing guns allowed? If I borrow a gun from a friend and drive with it to my house or to a range, is that OK? Will police ask you to show legal ownership of the gun?

On the MDSP webpage, the to and from range etc. appears to only apply a handgun, but IANAL.

How can I legally transport firearms within / through Maryland?
​They must be unloaded, in a carrying case, holster with a flap and the ammunition should be separate. It would be best to keep the unloaded weapon in the trunk where you do not have access to it. There are further regulations but essentially you can only transport a handgun between residence, to and from a repair shop, a shooting sporting event, between a residence and place of business if substantially owned and operated by the person. For more information please contact our Licensing Division​.

You are confusing MD law with FOPA. Ammo need not be transported separately from a completely unloaded handgun within MD. The only requirement is that there is no ammo in the gun in any way (not simply not chambered, but also not in a magazine that is in the handgun; loaded magazines NOT in a handgun may be transported within MD).

Yes, it was written in specifically for waterfowl hunting dog training. There is a waterfowl training launcher that uses a handgun with a threaded barrel and blanks to pop a "bird" into the air.

I recall seeing these used by trainers on the Eastern Shore when I was young (just after the last ice age). The dogs learn not to be shy of the sound of a gun and learn to watch for the bird falling after the sound. The trainer would take an already trained dog along with some pups to the beach and pop a "bird" into air to land in the water. The trained dog knew exactly what to do and the pups learned VERY quickly by example. 2 or 3 examples and they'd be on the game.

Something like this, but instead of using nailgun blanks, it screwed onto a real gun: https://dtsystems.com/products/launc...launchers.html
