How to Buy an AR at Chantilly Gun Show and bring home?

Going to Chantilly Gun Show tomorrow, in one of the advertisements it showed MD compliant rifles with cash and carry, I assume same day. Any idea how that works?

If the Vendor is a MD FFL holder is that how it's done? Also what identification items do I need for this?

Just curious on this as I'm going to the show and if the prices are good I was gonna try to buy a gun but started thinking because it's out of state.

Since there are no longer new regulated long guns, you can buy from a FFL from any state as long as the rifle is legal in Maryland. Here are the Chantilly purchase rules. https://www.thenationsgunshow.com/fi...uirements.html

In VA you need two forms of ID...each with your address and at least one government supplied like a drivers license. I don't know whether a MD FFL has to abide by that but take the second ID...car registration will do.

As long as the rifle in question is not specifically banned on the MSP website you're good to go. An AR with a full-length heavy barrel is fine...skinny barrel is a no-no. Being it's VA...buy as many high capacity magazines as you want and bring them back with you.

Some of the vendors may not feel comfortable selling an AR to a MD resident even if it is a Maryland legal rifle. There should be some vendors who are knowledgeable on Maryland laws and will sell to you.

I think that VA wants two forms of ID when performing the background check. One picture id and something else with your name printed on it. Bring your drivers license and registration or some mail that can corroborate your address

I just transferred a rifle from a VA resident at a VA FFl and you no longer need two forms of ID. All I needed was my MD drivers license.

Awesome thank you for the info. Would have taken way to much time to dig around various websites. I do know the regs on HBAR and length. As for mag capacity that's a win because it's already out of state.

I'll still bring the Registration and DL.

Last show, I forgot who, had a Delton HBAR rifle and it said MD compliant on a piece of tape on top of it.

At Chantilly, for any MD compliant rifle/shotgun. You do a 4473 form and they will call it in. You can't buy from anyone but an FFL there. If a person was walking around the show, you transfer from a FFL who is at the show (I THINK) which I don't recall anyone ever saying they did that. I do know that you can't buy an AR face to face at the show (from a non FFL) if you are a MD resident while at VA show.

as noted above, just don't be too PO'd if some dealers there won't sell an AR to you, a MD resident. with a full house of VA residents, they may not take the time necessary to thoroughly read and understand MD's crappy gun laws. but hope you do find something and someone to sell it to you.

As an added note, I would try to know what the brands & models are going for online and at our IP's, so that you have an idea how much they are marking up the price. Some of the dealers there are above MSRP on there firearms. A bunch of $100 bills in you hand never hurts, as it shows them that you are a serious buyer, but don't be afraid to walk away and come back later, Sunday afternoon is usually the best time for deals.

The sale must be conducted by an FFL, not a private sale.

Just a reminder.
