Buying guns in VA but living in MD

Since it seems the gun laws in VA are much better than MD. I had a few questions.

1. Can an MD resident purchase guns in VA?
2. Is there a waiting period/background check?
3. Is there a limit on number of guns?

Keep in mind the purchase would be made by an MD resident.

You can buy long guns in Virginia. You are not allowed by Federal Law to purchase guns in Virginia unless you are carrying a Virginia driver's license. Then you could buy handguns there. No waiting period in Virginia and they do instant check. You are allowed one handgun purchase per month unless youhave a CHP and then you can get as many as you like. Virginia is much better than Maryland as Maryland is a Communist Country.

Virginia is much better than Maryland as Maryland is a Communist Country. Except for driving laws, you are correct!

Regulated firearms = No
Non-regulated firearms = Yes

If there is a regulated firearm that you want to buy from a VA dealer, it must be shipped to a MD FFL.

Just to add, you can ONLY buy an unregulated long gun from a VA FFL. You cannot buy any firearm that is not an antique from a VA resident without an FFL getting involved.

I'm not arguing that VA oesn't have some pretty messed up traffic laws, but Maryland is FAR from perfect in that category. I am a native Marylander. i never realized how bad it is here until I moved to NH for 5 years and then moved back. The very first thing to begin to grate on my nerves was the DMV... don't even get me started.

You should buy in the state in which you have a driver's license.

True, I have residences in PA and MD. For tax purposes I use MD, but for drivers licenses and such, I use PA.

Please expand your thought, I have a residence in PA, and here in MD?

This only works if you are military, otherwise the MSP will check back with you in 30 days after they pull you over for an equipment violation.
