Angry Approved Handguns

So can anyone tell me just what is the process here in the state for having a handgun approved for sale.
I ask this because I have found that while I am able to purchase a Bul Cherokee in subcompact, the state does not allow the full frame to be sold here. This makes absolutely no sense to me, but then again this is Maryland.

There is no cost, other than either you or the gun's maker or a FFL has to provide a copy of the gun to the Handgun Board. It is legal to bring a handgun not on the list in for that purpose. If the gun is approved, you keep it, if disapproved the State pays you for it.

Here is some info I posted elsewhere a few days ago for someone else:
Quote:
You need to contact Marlene Jenkins at mjenkins@mdsp.org (410-653-4247) for the forms and when the next Handgun Board meeting is. Not sure what her schedule is this time of year. She is the Administrator, Maryland Handgun Roster Board.
You may play phone tag with Marlene but she will call you back if you leave her a message. Someone posted the forms here but I don't remember where.

And, note, it is EXCEEDINGLY unlikely that your gun will be rejected. They were accepting those cut-down .223 pistols, and if they'll accept those, they'll take anything.

I would love to see this board go away. Today, wouldn't be too soon.

As someone else posted elsewhere, the main function of the board is to keep "Saturday Night Specials" out of MD. A well made gun should have no issue being approved, at least in theory.

I forget where I saw it, but some states even have rules on the melting point of the materials used for the frame. I am not talking about MA or CA or NJ even.

But didn't they reject the semi-auto UZI?

When was this? Might have been years ago.

Recently the Board approved the SIG 5.56 pistol which I would say collectively floored most of us.
