I believe the state considers it the same as a modern handgun once you start carrying it.

The MD Wear & Carry Permit doesn't make a distinction between smokey and smokeless. That said, it'd be pretty crazy to use a black powder revolver as your concealed carry piece. If the question is asked because the prospective carrier is prohibited from owning a modern firearm, then that person is definitely going to be prohibited from concealed carry anyway. If the question is asked out of a romantic, nostalgic, or passionate interest and dedication to old school percussion cap revolvers - so passionate that a person allowed to carry a modern pistol is willing to bet their life on a wildly less reliable weapon - then I don't see a problem with it. But I see a lot of problems that could come from it.

AFAIK, the Feds do not consider a BP pistol as a "gun", loaded or not. Inserting a conversion cylinder makes it one. Marylandistan most likely would consider a capped and loaded BP pistol as a "dangerous weapon" to deprive you of your civil rights. Note that uncapped is unloaded. As with anything to do with law in this legislative lunatic asylum, YMMV.

It would be considered a deadly weapon. The same as a fixed blade knife. It is not legal to carry a concealed deadly weapon in Maryland with only a few exceptions, such as on your own property.

You could carry a loaded black powder revolver in your car, so long as it wasn’t in reach, just like you could a fixed blade knife.

A wear and carry permit would likely be viewed as okay carrying a loaded and concealed black powder revolver.

In theory, you’d probably be okay carrying a loaded BP revolver OPENLY as Maryland doesn’t consider them handguns.

But let me know how that goes…
