Topics Covered

If you are brand new to shooting, or just getting back into the game, it is recommended that you participate in our Firearms Training Basic Class before taking the concealed carry/wear and carry couse or before heading to the range for ccw/WCP certification. Firearms Training Basic Class 8 hours of hands on instruction from Chief  John Ayala an USCCA and NRA certified instructor.

  • Instruction in the fundamentals of pistol use. (The care, cleaning, maintenance, loading, unloading, and storage of pistols)
  • Instruction in the legal aspects of firearm possession, carry and use, including the rules governing the use of deadly force in the District of Columbia. 
  • Instructions to trainins concerning LAW OF SELF-DEFENSE
  • When to Use Deadly Force
  • Self-Defense Scenarios
  • Knowledge of how to operate your firearm
  • Understand common nomenclature and range commands
  • Knowledge of all safety rules

Inside a vehicle, the gun should be in a compartment separate from the driver’s compartment while also separating the firearm and the ammunition. It should be in a locked container and it should not be in the glove compartment or console.

Essentially, people in Maryland should transport the gun in a safety locked box or a mounted safety locked box, not in the driver’s compartment or within the driver’s immediate control. It could even be in the trunk. The trunk could have certain safes or locked boxes built in, which is common for hunters. They want to have a place to safely store a rifle and when they are going somewhere to hunt.

It is recommended to move out of the way in order to ensure that firearms are not in a zip-locked bag or a transport case. The case itself has to be separate, even disassembled if possible, and kept separate from the ammunitions. An individual should store it at the furthest end of the vehicle as far away from the driver as possible. Alternatively, the individual could put the firearm under the rear seat or mounted on the rear of that back seat so no one can grab it while driving a vehicle.

When a person is literally not going to and from the place they purchased it, and from a range or to and from a business establishment where they are allowed to carry it, there are exceptions. They include going to hunt, training, certification, safety class. The person may also be sponsored to have a weapon. There is really no other reason to have it on them.

An individual cannot transport firearms on public transportation because they are going to be in public around other people.

An example of someone who is never allowed to transport a firearm in Maryland is anyone with a prior felony conviction. If they do unlawfully transport a firearm, the law will prosecute them not only for the actual wear, transport, and carry but also for having a disqualifier, which is being in possession of a firearm as a convicted felon.

There is a good amount of crossover in terms of wear, transport and carry unlawful carry of a firearm punishments. An individual has to be very careful as to where they into the category and how the penalties could affect them.

For example, a handgun offense, the unlawful wearing or carrying is 3 years minimum. On a second offense, the punishment is 10 years to 30 years. They are all the same for first offenses and basic for either possessing or unlawfully possessing. The penalties increase if the handgun itself is stolen.

If the gun owner is stopped while driving into Maryland, and disclose that they do have a firearm to the police who was stopping them, they will be arrested. That means the person must return to the State of Maryland later because our penalties are much more stringent than others, especially surrounding states like Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia.

In states where the carry conceal licensing permits are distinctly different than in Maryland, a person cannot just carry conceal – even the exception has made it illegal for law enforcement, both current and former law enforcement on state and federal levels, or for the military to do this.
