MD State Police Regulated Firearms Collector Application

Hi All,

I am a new member of MD Shooters.

I found this form on the MD State Police site, named Form MSP 29-56 (MD State Police Regulated Firearms Collector Application) at http://www.mdsp.org/downloads/Collec..._Affidavit.pdf

From what I understand, this provides exemption from some of the waiting periods in MD. Is that correct? Does anyone know the process of completing this form (e.g., where to turn-in; the waiting period, etc)?

Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

Ralph

Welcome Ralph

since you'll be a collector you're able to purchase as many "regulated" firearms as you wish otherwise you're limited to 1 regulated per month. you still have to wait 7 days and you can complete the Form 77 w/ multiple firearms on it.

waiting on the return application is usually 1 month

Ensure that this application is notarized.
Submit the complete application by first class mail to the Firearms Registration Section. 1111 Reisterstown Road, Pikesville, Maryland 21208.
Others may chime in if you can fax or email it, but I don't believe so.

And welcome aboard sir!

It has to be notarized so they probably need the original but you will want copies. My primary reason for getting one is so I can transport for "private display" instead of just to/ from the range.

One of the prerequisites is that you must have previously purchased 2 regulated firearms in your name.

The collector's status also gives you a bit more flexibility as to where and for what reason you are able to transport handguns.

That is not true, If the MSP is stating that then they are not following their own regulations.

COMAR 29.03.01.04

I sent mine in about a month ago by fax. Called MSP Thursday they said I was approved (there is a "Y" next to my name she told me) but letter has not gone out yet. Not sure how long before letter shows up.

Agreed. However, the collector program does not cost anything and is also unfunded. The only reason it was started to begin with was because MD was concerned about the constitutionality of the one-gun-a-month rule so they made an exemption in case someone challenged it. The issue is that without funding they cannot run a background check on the applicant. Therefore they only approve a collector if he is in their system after passing a background check on a regulated firearm. That is the only way they will know if he not a prohibited person as per COMAR.

Nothing is in the COMAR, for the MSP to know. The MSP needs to follow the rules, just like the rest of us

There is something going on with the AGC, to get the MSP in compliance.
