MD HQL Training Exempt

Need to know if the Maryland Police Training Commission, Firearms Safety Course, Certificate of completion is still acceptable for HQL Training exemption.

Awhile back I heard something about an online class through MD that will be the same as a safety class. Could be used to aid in the HQL Process? Please let me know. I have already submitted application to MSP and awaiting approval. Would it be best to call MSP or will it be a satisfactory completion of training? Or should I just go take the course? Didn't really want to spend the extra money could go the gun and extras.

I am a current gun owner of only rifles. Do not own and handguns/regulated guns. Never had to take a hunters safety course due to my birth year and have been hunting for over 20 years.

Thanks [

I will not comment as to whether or not what you have qualifies, but here is an expert from the HQL page on the MSP web site in case you've not seen it.

http://mdsp.maryland.gov/Organizatio...onLicense.aspx

Required to have the HQL, but exempt from the training component

Someone who completed a firearms safety training course approved by the Secretary of the Department of Maryland State Police.
Has completed a course of instruction in the competency and safety of firearms as prescribed under Natural Resources Article, §10-301.1, Annotated Code of Maryland. Application for the Maryland Department of Natural Resources Hunter Safety Course Certificate can be obtained from here and may be used in lieu of Qualified Handgun Instruction.
Is currently a qualified handgun instructor.
Is an honorably discharged member of the armed forces of the United States or National Guard.
Is an employee of an armored car company who has a handgun permit issued by MSP.
​​Lawfully owns a regulated firearm, you do not have to complete the training to apply for the Handgun Qualification License.
In accordance with the Firearm Safety Act of 2013, individuals who are voluntarily admitted to an inpatient psychiatric facility (either state, private or acute general), for a period of 30 consecutive days or more, or involuntarily certified and retained by an Administrative Law Judge may have to surrender their firearms and will be prohibited from owning or possessing a firearm unless an individual is granted relief from firearm disqualification. DHMH makes available to persons who are prohibited from possessing certain firearms a process to apply for relief from these prohibitions.

As noted above, if you already own a regulated firearm you don't need to do the class. You still have to do the application/fingerprints/license part of it though.

Texas hunter safety course is online and not very expensive. Qualifies for the exemption.
