BEFORE buying a handgun or having a handgun transferred, you must have your Handgun
Qualification License (HQL). You can get this information on the MD State Police
It is the BUYER’s RESPONSIBILTY to ensure that the firearm being transferred is allowed
in the State of Maryland. Check the MD State Police web site at www.mdsp.org
Any firearm transferred to us that is not allowed in MD will incur a $50.00 handling
fee to return the firearm back to the sender, IF THEY WILL ACCEPT IT. A refund of
purchase price is between YOU and THE SELLER - NOT US.
Transfer information will only be sent Monday through Friday as long as we receive
the correct information regarding the firearm. Not all FFL’s are open on weekends.
This is to prevent confusion for all parties involved.
Any firearm not picked up or sent back to the distributor/seller within 90 days
will be deemed forfeited and/or abandoned and will be sold to recoup expenses.
All transferees must have a Government Issued Picture ID ie: Maryland Driver’s License
After the firearm is transferred and received by us, you will have 15 days to come
in to the store to do the appropriate paperwork. After 15 days the transferred item
will be returned to the transferor.
NO firearm will be released without proper paperwork and the appropriate waiting
period. The waiting period starts after the firearm is received by us, the proper
paperwork is filled out correctly, and sent to the MD State Police.
ALL firearms must come from a LICENSED FFL dealer, unless the transfer is performed
in our store (person to person).
If a customer cancels their firearm order after the background check has been sent
in to the MD State Police, they will forfeit their entire deposit or 50% of the price
of the firearm whichever the greater.
If a firearm is not picked up before 30 days from MD State Police approval date,
the customer will forfeit their entire deposit. ALSO, after 30 days another deposit
is needed and a new application will have to be completed and sent to the MD State
If you transfer another firearm BEFORE your 30 day requirement is completed (non-collector)
and the firearm arrives at the store, there is a $25.00 storage fee for each firearm,
that you have sent to the store. Buying the gun from us directly will not incur any
storage fees. Call store for details.
