The deep historical history of carry in Maryland was discussed in great detail here, but that was a cpl years back . I'm too Luddite to link to it , but I'll give a very simplified synopsis .

Prior to 1972 , open carry was default legal .
Prior to 1972 , there was no such thing as a Carry Permit , and concealed carry was default illegal . There were certain exceptions , and there was greater lattitude for asserting an exception .
Certain Professional Licensing ( example Private Investagator ) also included the ability to concealed carry.

In those days , for bussiness purposes, etc , it was semi- common for an amenable Sheriff to give unpaidbDeputy Sheriff commisions valid for 11months, 29days at a time .

How is the "70% on a B27 target" measured by instructors?

Holes in the paper.....

The two times I've done it they scored everything that hit inside the lines.

My instructor allowed the two center rings. Just getting on the black wasn’t good enough. Happy to boast like a jackass that I was the only 100% score in the class ... because I used a full-size pistol. Some showed up with micro pistols they’d hardly practiced with, and one guy was allowed a Mulligan he probably shouldn’t have had. Not nearly enough range tine for some folks.

An instructor once wisely told me to "Qualify" with any weapon that you intend to carry. You do not have to send anything into the MSP but this way if there is ever a case where you need to show that you have "range time" with said weapon. I asked my range to do this and they happily filled out the qualification form and signed it for my records, no cost associated. This way i can hopefully never have to prove that i am not someone that qualified with one weapon but used a second. With the craziness of the way cases are being tried I am happy to take this extra step, plus if i can not pass that simple test i should not be carrying that weapon.

Finished my live fire today. Also got 1oo%. Our instructor did quite a lot more than required by law but I don't think anyone can get too much training. 350 rounds total today. Had a husband and wife in the group. I don't know if she had ever fired a semi auto pistol but at the end of the day she was pretty darn good. Now the hard part starts.

Official Threshold and Personal Objective

Official policy is any hit on the black counts as a 100% hit. Scoring rings are NOT used. That is the threshold for passing.

But we push our students to achieve a much higher personal objective (yet informal) standard that we believe is far more practical. We push for hits with "defensive accuracy" on a target the size of a paper-plate or 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper. So far every one of our students has been able to get at least 70% hits to this standard.
