Question Moving to another state, gun storage in MD?

I'm considering moving to another state, but would prefer to keep most of my guns in storage in MD for a while. I have pre and post FSA2013, and no NFA weapons.

Assuming my guns are currently legal in MD (they are), can I have residency in another state, and legally keep, store, and use my guns in MD?

What happens if I move back to MD? EG, post FSA2013 AR15 owned by me while out of state, but I then move back to MD?

I know no one is a lawyer....but if you have an opinion, and/or point me to the language in MD law that explains this, that'd be helpful.

Are you keeping ownership of a place to store your firearms in Maryland or looking to leave them with a friend or relative? The latter case may constitute a transfer unless the firearms are not accessible to anyone but yourself, such as in a locked safe and only you have the combination.

I can't conceive of another state having as horrible gun laws as Maryland, so moving out of this rat's nest of a state would be a good thing for you. Bad for us, but good for you! So why would you come back to this hellhole?

Normally a state will require you to take your guns, then get the hell out of the state. (AND don't let the door bang you in the butt on the way out!) They honestly would rather not have us in the state. If you don't tell them you're storing your guns here, I don't think the state would care, and even then, who would tell anyone? I certainly wouldn't care where you kept your guns as long as they weren't being used in a crime.

Why would you do a damn fool thing like that? The only way it would make it illegal is for you to go to another state, become a resident of that state and pay taxes to it, then move back to this state.

Well, you've got my opinion. Good luck! Honestly hope you don't come back, except to get your guns! Hope you end up in a decent state far from this rotting pile of dung!

I love a lot about this state. The people, the diversity, the geography, and the opportunities are fantastic. No, I don't like the gun laws. But I know of no US state that hasn't removed rights that I believe are fundamental to freedom. And there are some (progressive) trends in MD I support. As this is a gun forum, I get it. We hate gun laws that are restrictive and in conflict with 2A. But, I'm not a single issue voter, or citizen. The reason I may leave MD, and the reason I may come back to MD, is personal and is thankfully more complicated than just a 2A issue.

Some FFL holders may store some for you. I would not do that if they require a NCIS or 4473 to reclaim when you return. As if you put a gun for sale on consignment for example. What is legal and available to you could change while you're gone, and may risk not being able to get it later.
Commercial storage facilities would be a bad idea, and most places have exclusions on them. Family or trusted friends may be your best bet.
