As for the rifles....nothing at all. As long as you sell them to a state resident and they are not criminals (to your knowledge and you don't suspect them to be) then you do not need to go through an FFL or the state police. I am sketchy on the subject of selling to a non-state resident without going through an FFL.

As for the handguns, you can avoid going through an FFL if you are selling it to a state resident. All you have to do is both of you go down to the MD State Police barracks (not all of them do this and I think you may have to go to Catonsville or something), have the purchaser fill out the background check form, pay the ten dollars and wait seven buisiness days for the results. It will save you $25-$100 over going through an FFL to do this.

Be carefull about the type of pistol and rifle you have though. If you have had them for quite a while, they may be ones that are now banned or regulated. Some examples are a semi-auto Mac-10 or a semi-auto Uzi. they are illegal in Md unless they are full auto or registered as a short barreled rifle. Some rifles are also regulated as pistols by the state now. Some AR-15s are treated like handguns (don't ask me why since I am totally confused by this).

If your guns are really old and are on the Curio and Relics list and you are selling them real cheap, I can buy them and we don't need the state police either (handguns too). I have an 03 FFL that allows me to buy C&R firearms.

One more thing. If someone other than one that has an 01 FFL wants to buy more than one of your handguns, then they will have to wait 30 days between purchasing each handgun, or get special permision from the state by saying they are part of a collection to buy them all at once, or the buyer has a "designated collector" status from the state that allows them to purchase more than one a month, or they are C&R handguns and you sell them to me .

Any 01 FFL dealer can handle your in-state or out of state handgun sales and your out of state rifle sales. Shop around though to see who will charge the least. Some of them are outrageous, but some of them will let you sell your guns in their shop on consignment and are fair.

Would some of the more educated regarding re-sale of handguns made in the last 25 years, care to educate some of us less knowledgable in the new MD laws. I hear conflicting comments, even from some gun dealers.
For ex:
1)Neighbor has a gun he registered in 1989, now wants to sell it to, say me.

2)Neighbor has a gun he bought in 1989, (he is not sure if the old owner registered it or not )now wants to sell it to, say me.

3) Neighbor has a gun he inherited from an uncle in 1975, (.32 H7R revolver) now wants to sell it to, say me.

4) Neighbor has a gun he got from someone who gave it to him in 1981, (they wanted it out of his house) now wants to sell it to, say me.

For all but the .32, assume they are 15 mag guns, Glock, Ruger, S & W etc. Caliber may vary from .380, 9mm to 40 cal.

How about some up-to-date accurate info, without anyone having to search out their local police chief or state trooper?

Much appreciated, thanks in advance. Chuck

For any of these, go the the local Maryland State Police barracks for the transfer. You will need a Handgun Qualification License to purchase any of these. (Instructions at the top of the page.)

You can use a local gun store or other licensee but this will cost you more.

Any magazine over 10 rounds CANNOT be transferred within Maryland.
