This might fit your needs:

I think TomKat Ammo is affiliated with them and could handle Maryland storage.

Prepare guns carefully for storage! Life happens and it may take a lot longer than you were counting on before you retrieve them.
The safest way is to use a bonded storage facility.
Probably cheaper if you do like I did when moving to Texas.
I packed them in strong box with some furniture into a storage box - the kind they drop off and pick up. These are secure, but they WILL see rough treatment. Pack tightly and waterproof all valuables (LIKE GUNS).
If you want them somewhere else, call and the box comes to you. You want them when you get back to MD call and there it is.

If you purchase a banned in MD firearm while resident outside the state, when you move back you MAY NOT bring it into the state.

So if you purchase outside MD, either purchase wisely, or plan on selling when you move back.

If, as a Maryland resident, you buy a MD-banned firearm out of state, you've violated Federal law. Under Federal law, if purchasing a firearm outside your state of residence, the firearm needs to be legal in both the state the purchase is occurring in, and your legal state of residence.

True.

But if you are an MD resident, they could not sell it to you.

I was thinking of the situation that you move out of state, and therefore are NOT an MD resident for a period of time, and buy something then move back.

If you move out of state, unless you are a full time student or active duty military, you are supposed to change your residence to where you are actually residing.

sounds like the question is, if his current firearms stay in maryland, are they grandfathered against any changes in MD laws while he moves out of state and/or changes residency, if he were to return to MD and regain residency.

certainly if, as a resident of another state, he buys firearms that aren't MD-legal, he wouldn't be able to bring those into MD if he were to regain MD residency.

I hadn't even thought of this scenario! Good point.
I'll be talking to a lawyer.

My original question has been perverted a bit in this conversation. lol.

My question is simple:
Assume I own (I may or may not) a handgun and an AR15 that was legal to transfer/purchase prior to FSA2013 and banned from transfer/purchase post FSA2013.
I change residency to another state.
I change residency back to MD.

1) Can I store those guns in MD while I'm a resident of another state?
2) Can I use those guns in MD while I'm a resident of another state?
3) Can I keep those guns, without any additional paper work/reporting/registering/HQL, if I change my residency back to MD.

Under current law, if you owned them prior to 10/1/13, you can have them as a resident, you can have them as a non-resident in the state, and you can move into the state and establish residency.

I cannot see that storing them in MD will make any difference in being able to own them in MD at a later time. The law does not care where the guns live, only where YOU live and when they were purchased.

If you make the mistake of going to NYC, you will find out that they have very severe firearm laws, having said that I was able to store my firearms with the police in NYC until I got the needed permits to get them back (that was back in the 1980s). If you intend to come back to Maryland perhaps they can be stored by the police, or a firearm dealer located in MD, until you come back...
