It was pretty big.

Maybe we need a standard MDS meetup at the show. Like the bottom of every hour at the Maryland Shall Issue booth or something.

Thanks.

Dennis has always treated me right, so I throw him my business whenever I can...and he can locate things that are off the beaten path.

I have only been to a few gun shows, mostly in maryland. I didnt buy a gun because I figured it had to be shipped to an FFL. I know if I lived in VA I would have been ok. Was I correct?

Handgun or long gun? A handgun would have to be shipped to a Maryland FFL...federal law but would still need to be on the Maryland handgun roster's approved list for transfer in Maryland. A long gun in Virginia you could buy by filling out a 4473 form and getting the instant background check...and the long gun has to be on Maryland's approved list. A non-banned long gun in Maryland you can buy face-to-face.

Handgun could have been transferred to a Maryland FFL and I know at least one was there so no shipping at all. Of course the handgun would have to been legal in Maryland.
Long guns are tricky as most out of state dealers do not want to sell to a Maryland resident because they do not want to learn our laws. But as long as it was legal to buy in Maryland you could have purchased it in Virginia.
You would have to had two forms of ID to buy in Virginia though.

I had no clue that I could get a gun in VA. I did see the MD FFL there, but I didn't see anything I liked (that i could afford). Just curious about the laws. Thank you everyone.

Any handgun manufactured before Jan. 1, 1985, doesn't need to be on the Maryland roster, to be legal to buy.

If seller of a long gun is a private individual, you would need to find an FFL to transfer it.

I bought an M1 Carbine at a show in Winchester. I had to try 4 or 5 dealers at the show for one who would do the transfer.

I bought a reasonably-priced Ruger American in 6.5 Grendel there a couple shows back. Non-banned long guns are fine to purchase from a VA FFL.

Forgot to go back for the ASC Colt SMG mags I saw. For $19.99, Iíll give them a shot...
How much of a discount do you get on mags at the gun show? I'm looking for 2 or 3 M&P 9 mags.
