Good idea. It's too bad some dealer's (including a few site IP's) require you to buy a new lock from them for each transfer, whether you already have an approved lock in the appropriate caliber or not. They must need that extra $10-20 they make off that lock. Are we really pretending that people use these things and need one for each gun they own? I don't think I've ever taken any of mine out of the package.

The whole lock thing is silly. We encourage people to bring their own lock, but the law is the law and they have to have one. We would be glad to be a repository for used locks. People could come get them or we could send them, or maybe someone has another idea.

We are all depositories. As Marylanders we have likely purchased some and even more likely they are still in the package. Great appreciation for you stepping up though. We can all do something!

Well except me, I gave out my last lock......

The law requires an internal lock like an Omega lock. It is certainly true that there must be thousands of internal locks in the Baltimore area stuck in drawers, gun cases, cabinets, land fills, etc.

The S&W M&P9P I bought was better priced than other places and the industry partner that sold it to me required a lock to be purchased even if I could have provided one. I guess from now on it will depend on the OTD price as to where I buy from. Of course service will be a factor as well and we have a many IPs here that provide a great service and many of us here know who they are by now. If you don't you only need to read or ask.

The lock thing realy is silly and just a way to increase tax dollars to the state. You don't have to buy the lock on a used gun if I'm not mistaken.

Let's post up who they are and avoid doing business with them. Get the word out.

I think the law requires that the lock go into the chamber like the Omega locks (basically the only lock that's approved). Not totally sure on that though. I have still been made to buy a lock, even when the gun I bought came with the cable-type or trigger guard locks.

Honestly, I don't feel like getting into an argument with someone because I mentioned their favorite gun shop and all they're doing is "covering their asses" so it's ok. I personally know where I will and won't shop anymore and that's about the best I can do. If you're not sure about the shop you're doing the transfer at, call and ask if it's ok to supply your own MD-approved lock.
