77R Approval Wait Time

What are these wait times for the 77R to be approved through the MSP's new system? I did fill out the application on 2/06/17 for approval of a handgun purchase. It says "Submitted to Application Pool", I'm wondering how long it takes them to get through this "Pool" lol.

And you still haven't been approved, not cool as soon as the pistol I ordered comes in (hopefully this week) I will submit mine. I'm curious on this as well so I will update with the times it took this will be my 1st purchase with this system.

Did you go to a gun shop and buy something?

It has been taking people exactly 7 days AFTER the local FFL submits the purchase.

you submit to the application pool before you go in to the FFL, then bring in a copy of the email they send you w/ the application # and PIN.
Keep the PIN with you when you pick it up too.

I have not been to my FFL to make a purchase yet. I received my HQL on 2/3 and filled the application on 2/6. It was my knowledge that I needed the application finished first before a purchase. So my chain would be, receive HQL > fill application > application accepted > go to FFL with approved application and pin > make firearm purchase >wait the time then pick it up. Is this correct lol?

The way it has worked for me is the "Submitted into Application Pool" is only there until the state gets your handgun information from the dealer. Then it changes to "Application Review" or something like that. Then on the 7th day at 6am, if everything goes right, it will then change to "Not Disapproved". At that point you may take your information to the dealer and pick up your handgun. But please remember to take your new PIN with you. Without that, the dealer cannot release your handgun to you.

hermfro,
your good to go,
when you fill your end out, until you go to buy a handgun (or lower) and the FFL does his part, it will stay like it is now.

There is no MSP approval process that I know of other than submitting ot the pool before you buy the gun/lower.

If you had not filled it out ahead of time, your FFL would/should let you do it there. Doing it ahead of time simply saves time at the FFL and that is good for everyone.

Ah ok. So I should go to purchase the one of my choice, then they will send over that information to the MSP. And that will get the ball rolling on the application being accepted. I will go to my FFL this week and say, hey I filled out my application what is next, I'm new to this, teach me lol.

That's correct. It basically sits there as "pending" until they get the information from your FFL about what gun you're buying so that they can register it to you while they do the background checks.

And just to get pedantic, you will never get "approved" to buy a handgun in Maryland. You will only ever get "not disapproved." Hey, it's Maryland.

You must take the email that was sent to you which states your application number and PIN. Without that your dealer cannot proceed.
