I wouldn't worry about the old handguns not being "registered". That's still a relatively new law in MD. Mid-1990s if I remember correctly. Someone will provide a year with greater precision. This "registration" of ownership was only during a transfer to a MD resident when the State Police recorded who got which handgun (and serial number) after approving ("not disapproving") the 77R application. If someone already owned handguns prior to the law being passed, these handguns did not need to be registered per se.

So as long as he's not transferring to you an FN FiveSeven that he claims that he got over 20 years ago, you should be fine with the old handguns that he might want to pass to you from his collection. Go to a MD Police barracks with him. Leave the unloaded handgun in a enclosed container (I use a zippable triangular handgun case or the box the handgun came in) in the trunk of the car. Go inside and ask how to do the transfer, and they will help you. At some point the officer will walk with you out to the car. Open the trunk for him, and point out the case, but let him/her handle the gun on their own to do the inspection. After the paperwork is done and the fee is paid there, you'll hear back via email after 7 days that you can go pick up the firearm from your father-in-law.

The only purpose for registration is for confiscation.

Those people represent the majority of the residents of Hong Kong. The majority of Maryland's residents want MORE restrictions on us gun owners, not less. The people in Hong Kong are looking to preserve the liberties they currently have. Maryland's population - by very large margins - has voted to hand its government and its body of law over to the anti-liberty world view. That horse has left the barn. Marching in the streets of Maryland in the name of looser gun laws is not going to make the majority of its residents suddenly change their entire perspective on this. The fight is now in the courts. If you want to march, save it for when the left starts trying to burn the place down to prevent Trump's next SCOTUS nominee.

There is no requirement for his hand guns to be "registered" unless he moved to Maryland after Oct. 1, 2013.

Except for new residents since that date, Maryland only keeps a record of transfers, that is a change in ownership. It's a fine point, but basically they keep a database of the Form 77rs: the sale or transfer paperwork. If you sell that gun to someone else, it will be "registered" to both of you. If he sells it, it will be "registered" to three different people.

"Registered" does not mean "legal." "Unregistered" does not mean "illegal." Before I think 1966, no paperwork at all was needed. All handguns were "unregistered." Until 1996, handguns could be sold privately with no paperwork. Until 2013 people could move here and bring handguns from other states, no requirement to "register" them.

There was never a requirement to "register" handguns already possessed, such as private sale guns already owned when the law changed in '96.

The point is, I'll bet many of his handguns are not "registered", but there is no requirement that they be. He is not required to "register" them. They are legal.

The misconceptions about "registration" are sort of my pet peeve, so forgive me.


Any gun more than 50 years old is a "Curio and Relic" (C&R). C&R handguns can be transferred without the HQL. If he gives you the Beretta, you do the paperwork at a FFL Dealer or a State Police Barracks. There will be no question of it being "registered" to him. That is a total non-issue. But afterwards, it will be "registered" to you. And if you sell it to me, it will be "registered" to both of us, for all eternity.


But get something better than a .32 for defense. Get something modern and expendable, like a .357 revolver or a 9mm Glock.

You go right ahead and do "off the record" illegal stuff all you want. Best of luck to you.
