Maryland Code, Public Safety § 5-132 Hand gun safety device; military exempt

So the gun shop on Ft Mead says I need a barrel lock/integrated mechanical safety lock in order to leave the store with my pistol. My cable lock is not good enough.

After carefully reading the Maryland Code, Public Safety § 5-132 Hand gun safety device,
(B)(1)(ii)it says military members are exempt from needing a “safety device” when receiving/picking up after 7-day wait of a purchases regulated firearm.

Anyone care to chime in?

Reads to me like that statute applies to the dealer.

b) This section does not apply to:

(1) the purchase, sale, or transportation of a handgun to or by a federally licensed gun dealer or manufacturer that provides or services a handgun for:

(i) personnel of any unit of the federal government;

(ii) members of the armed forces of the United States or the National Guard;

My stab is that the on base gun store is taking the conservative interpretation that your private purchase is more akin to a " normal " FFL transaction , rather than a weapon for the purposes of Military Duties .

Yeah , I can read the statute, and make an argument at least as strong for the opposite interpretation , but that's my crystal ball mindreading of Why the PX does so .

Giving the military access to functional firearms on a military installation, that's just crazy!

Only the police and military should have non-functional firearms.

Only six years to go then I’ll be in free America where my CCW serves as an instant background and I walk out with the gun the day I buy it.

On second thought, instead of retiring, I may need to get a second job....

Yeah, I think you are going to need a second job.

I agree it reads like mud but this is Maryland so he's going to need a useless bore lock.
