"Regulated Firearms Collector" status

Can someone please explain the benefits of applying to become a "regulated firearm collector" in Maryland. I downloaded the form that someone posted on another thread. It is a very simple one-page form and it looks like all you have to do is show that you possess a C&R license (which I do) to qualify.

Does this status mean you don't have to go through the 7 day waiting period every time? Is there any cost associated with applying?

So literally the ONLY benifit to this designation is being able to buy more than one regulated firearm in a 30 day period? No other benefits at all???

I have never used mine, but it is good to have the piece of mind knowing that when I buy more than one C&R handgun to be delivered to me I don't have to worry there may be some law I may have broken.

I know there is most likely no issue with buying more than one C&R handgun from out of state, but like I said the piece of mind knowing I don't have to worry about even the unlikely is priceless.

Well there are two other possible benefits.
The transportation of handguns by a "bona fide" collector is allowed, and some collectors have gotten carry permits on the basis they transport their collections.

(5) the moving by a bona fide gun collector of part or all of the collector's gun collection from place to place for public or private exhibition if each handgun is unloaded and carried in an enclosed case or an enclosed holster;

My hope was that it would allow me to avoid paying the MSP $15 and waiting a week and a half every time I buy a handgun or "assault" rifle. If you are a designated collector, why do they have to put you through the ringer every time, ya know
