MD Resident Firearm Purchases
Maryland residents who wish to purchase a Handgun at one of our retail stores, or on our web site for pick up at one of our locations, must comply with Maryland firearm laws. Only those handguns listed on the Maryland Handgun Roster are legal for sale to Maryland residents.
NEW MARYLAND HANDGUN APPLICATION PROCESS
Effective January 1, 2017 all Handgun Purchase Applications will be processed online through the Maryland State Police (MSP) Handgun Registration Portal.
Note: You must have a Handgun Qualification License (HQL) or be exempt (i.e. Military or MD or Federal Law Enforcement) to create a user account and submit an application to purchase a handgun.
To start the process to purchase a handgun (or AR stripped lower) you will need to have a user account set up with MSP. This is an easy one-time process! Just log onto the MSP website https://licensingportal.mdps.maryland.gov and click on “Apply for Firearm Purchases”. Follow the instructions to create your account. An email will be sent to you with a Validation Code. Log back in using this code and you’re all set to start an application.
To start a Purchase Application, log onto your account and click on “Start 77R Application”. Fill out all needed information and questions and submit. You will receive an email with an application number and PIN number. Bring in these numbers as well as your Driver’s License and Handgun Qualification License (HQL) and we will submit your application. You will receive an email confirming the receipt of your application. In 7 days (if not disapproved) another email will inform you that your handgun can be picked up.
