Long gun sales in Maryland...

Sorry if this is a "no brainer" but...

My understanding is that most long guns (shotguns, bolt rifles, historic rifles) can be sold face to face in Maryland without having to go through an FFL. Is that correct?

Then I am also assuming it is NOT legal to sell those same firearms to someone from out of state who is visiting the state. Is that also correct?

Any cross-state line transaction must go through FFL.

Long guns can go through FFL in either state.
Handguns must go through FFL in buyer's state.

No face-to-face sales across state lines.

C$R can ease things if the firearm is old enough or on the list and buyer has FFL03.

Both are correct.

Private face to face long gun sales are one Veto override away from ending in MD... just a reminder, if you are going to do something, do it before Jan... we are about to lose another liberty.

There are exceptions when the rifle is C&R and one or both of you doing the transfer is a C&R FFL03 holder, depends on the situation In that case, One of you are the FFL so your statement is still correct.

So...what kind of a dumb question is that? Sorry to be rude but do you think I'm from a Russian troll farm or from the DNC or...

Maybe I'm someone who is not intimately familiar with Maryland law...having moved here recently...who doesn't want to get into trouble and prefers to deal with people that are helpful instead of people who ask stupid questions like "Are you real?"

I just got my C&R FFL last week. The gun that I am selling was not received or logged in through my C&R license. And, wanting to be safe rather than sorry I'm assuming it would still be best either to ship it to his FFL or have him meet me here at an FFL to make the transfer. Yes?

If you have a C&R you can sell a C&R long gun to someone from out of state; you will have to log the sale.

It's not clear whether the gun is C&R-eligible from your posts. Any firearms you may have owned prior to receiving your 03FFL will have to be logged at the time of sale. It's not required to log your previous C&R-eligible firearms unless you dispose of them through a sale while your license is active.

If the long gun in question is not C&R, you can sell it to a MD resident without going thru an FFL. Out of state purchasers will need to go thru an 01FFL.

What Bob is saying is that if your long gun is a C&R, since it is not currently in your bound book, you will need to log it IN as an acquisition from "private collection" and then log it OUT as a disposition to whomever it goes to. No big deal.

The mechanics of the transfer depend on who the buyer is, but your plan to either ship to an FFL or have them meet at a local FFL fits the bill for all cases I think.
