Stores willing to sell to MD residents?

I'm looking for a Sub-2000 (so nothing banned) and am thinking about buying out of state where there's actual inventory. I know long guns are fine to buy out of state if the gun is legal in both, but I've also heard that some stores aren't willing to do it.

So, I'd like to ask the community which out-of-state stores you've gone to which have been fine selling to us Maryland folks? More than happy to drive and get a day trip out of it to avoid the $100 or so in shipping/FFA fees.

mostly it's: "buy it from us because transfers are a money losing pain in the ass." A lot of stores simply discourage transfers period.

Check around locally. I have seen them in the wild. They seem to sell quick. but they can be ordered. for example I would check 2A in Jessup and United Gun, I have seen them walk out the door there.

I meant to say that some out of state stores don't want to sell legal long guns to MD residents because our state is notorious. Sorry, just wanted to clarify.

And about inventory going quick, I can't compete with the folks who live a lot closer or have more time than me. That's why I wanted to look at places out of state who may have less people with quick purchasing trigger fingers.

Check for a local IP in the header. Contact one and if available they will order for you. Saves you a transfer fee and supports an IP.

Gun shops have a way to order online so you don't have to waste a trip. I just checked United Gun for example and you can order one.

They are regularly at gun shows ( albeit often at high prices ) .

If you're going to take a day trip across the 301 Bridge , in sequence : Big Dog to DK Firearms ( IP) in Bowling Green , to Green Top . All of them are fluent in Maryland , and welcome Maryland customers .

The Sub 2k I had was fun for like 200 rounds, then I got rid of it.
Stock sights are terrible. There is no cheek weld. You can mount a red dot with a 1 inch riser(which you need to actually sight the thing), but then you can't fold it. Then you can buy a flippable red dot mount from Midwest or M Carbo for like 100 to 160 some bucks, then you can fold it.
I envisioned this being my "truck or backpack gun".
The juice of that dream just wasn't worth all the squeeze.

The Sub 2000 is your Huckleberry , IF folding is your #1 priority . If that's your thought out decision , you takes your choices , and your inherent tradeoffs .
