Don't expect any real change in Maryland just because they got a Repub. Gov. The legislature is still a Democrat majority.

Fingerprints went through. Should expect my denial any day now.....

No, No, No - you have this all wrong! They will wait their maximum allotted time (or more) to issue their denial, that way it will be even longer before they have to deny - uh, "consider" - your appeal. They hope you will loose interest or just go away before then.

Please keep the forum posted on the progress of your application (and likely subsequent appeal).

The Maryland Concealed Carry Permit is a Maryland problem. And, they are the only ones that can fix it. They have to be bold, loud and demanding that the MD. CCW is aloud to go forward and the restrictions and political blockages are removed. As things stand, yes there is such a thing as a MD. CCW, but getting one is not likely. Also, there needs to be reciprocal agreements with other states to allow non-resident carry. I like the law in Indiana. they recognize concealed carry from all other states. Like a drivers license, if you can drive in any other state you can drive in Indiana.
I was born and raised in MD. but live in a bordering state and only go back when it is a must,(mainly funerals) as I can't carry in MD. I spend my vacation money in my state or a gun friendly state. Maryland, not only no, but Hell No!
My stance, times a million, is costing Maryland a many millions of tourist dollars. And, you can never have enough of that.

Avil6 makes a good point and that is exactly what happened in my case. When I first inquired (about 15 years ago) I was told it was a very very minimal chance of being approved so I gave up for a while. So I started reading up on it again about 5 years ago and finally started the process...but this time I got professional help LOL (no jokes) this time was good.

SR9 you are right but if moving is not an option there is a way to get it...but difficult. My renewal is now and it is taking a while. A buddy of mine is going through the same process and they are requiring additional documentation. He said... don't get frustrated just connect the dots. We use the same professioal consultant. Let you know how it goes....

I lived in Annapolis for a few years, then Hagerstown, and I can honestly say that state is the worst I have ever lived-in, bar none. I'm back to my home state, AR, and quite happy with way-of-life here. In Maryland it's almost as if the state despises its citizens with all the ridiculous laws on the books, one which required me to pay a $1,500 dollar fee to transfer my vehicle tags from Arkansas to Maryland. I got an out of state permit, and just tagged my car in Arkansas.

This is but one of many problems. Annapolis was the most expensive town to live-in at the time. The crime there was atrocious. Left a pair of prescription glasses in a restaurant there, got in the car, and realized I had left the sunglasses inside. Nobody knew what happened to them as they were gone when I walked back inside. Someone later said that is a common problem. They steal the glasses and sell the frames.

Murders were rampant in convenience stores/gas pumps. One happened less than 30 minutes after I gassed up at one.

If an enema was given to the U.S., Maryland would be where they insert the tube, and D.C. would run a very close second place.

I'll never go back to Maryland, and have to commute to Balto or D.C. Moving there was most ignorant/stupid thing I have ever done with my life.

D.C. was the murder capital of the U.S. back then. I was parked behind the White House one trip, and someone was murdered in their car just 3 hours after I left. I recognized the exact spot on the news.

I feel lucky to get out of there with my sanity, and my life.

Get a Utah Permit. Relatively easy and good in 30+ states, not including Maryland. Used to be good in Pennsylvania until they elected a Lib Attorney General. See https://www.usconcealedcarry.com/travel/

True, when I got my first Ohio CC, all I did was mail a copy of my Ohio CC, and an application to to a PA Sheriff with a check and he sent me a Pa. CC permit.

When I renewed this year I called and they no longer do that, there is only on location, you have to go in person and you have to have good reason why you want to carry.

If we don't stop these Liberals soon we're done.

Stay away from DC that's like jumping from the pan to the fire... Libs they are going to destroy it all! I did look into Arkansas for future retirement and was surprised at how dirt cheap housing was but not quite able yet!

Farmhood, I'd strongly suggest northwest Arkansas as a retirement option. I live in Bella Vista, AR, a quaint little city just north of Bentonville.

Bentonville, Rogers, Springdale, and Fayetteville makeup most of the population here, and this corner of the state is a melting-pot of people from all over the world, partly due to Walmart, and the University of Arkansas.

This area of Arkansas is so far removed from the rest of the state, as to be its own entity. They are finally widening I-540 to I-49 to 4 lanes each direction, as the traffic has become reminiscent of Balto, but not as bad as the suicide loop around D.C.

The area has been under a population explosion for at least 10 years, and possibly longer. Make that 18 years.

There are many retirement areas that could compete with here, but I'm stuck here until I die. I'm done living and working in big cities, with all the pitfalls and problems.

I live in the Highlands, near Loch Lomond, and I could throw a golf ball onto a golf course close-by, but can't golf any more.

Get some brochures from the Chambers of commerce for the cities listed. I live in Bella Vista with woods surrounding me, and when leaves are on trees, I don't know anyone lives in the same area. Can't see their homes.

Thanks! I will get the brochures. This is kinda crazy...I just read about Bella Vista a month ago and thought it looked good. Need to research the climate because I deal with an asthma type problem that gets aggravated around here.

Uh-oh. Most of Bella Vista is wooded, with Oak, Walnut and other usual suspects that would definitely cause asthma attacks.

Grasses galore, with my allergic rhinitis starting May 20th. I could set a watch by it. My wife's family visits at times (they are in Dallas) and her daughter in law starts sneezing the moment they cross the Arkansas state line (so says she)! She sneezes so much that she has to take massive amounts of benadryl.

If it's windy during days with high pollen count, I stay indoors, or venture outdoors with a mask. Eyes suffer, however. I'd look at some common foliage, grasses, and trees online for our part of the state. It could wreak havoc with your asthma...

...I bet you could get more, and better information online than paper brochures. Don't know what I was thinking?

If you need other information about Bella Vista, please let me know, and I'll research it for you. There are outdoor rifle/skeet and sidearm ranges about 7 miles from me. I believe they have a regional skeet contest here every year, if memory serves. I'm a sidearm and defensive long rifle kind of guy, and rangemasters don't like rapid fire or double-tap shooting. Dynamic courses are not setup at that range.

We also have other outdoor ranges very close. Massad Ayoob, and other tactical/dynamic instructors give instruction here, several times a year, at those dynamic ranges.

The new Republican Governor will be no help as promised before the election. He double crossed the NRA, and Md. Gun owners, promising to repeal the bad gun laws, he reneged, saying he needed to focus on the economy.

Considering the new MD. Gov. just took office about 2 weeks ago, aren't you a little quick to make statements like that. I'm pretty sure there is more on his plate from the get-go. than repealing bills (that takes the Legislature to do ) I think the economy of the state is a higher priority to more people in Maryland. I myself live in a neighboring state (from MD. originally) and have C/C permits from 2 states and would love to be able to carry in MD. Hoping the bill to recognize other states C/C Permits will be reintroduced this year, but I'll bet your Democrat legislature will kill it again. I don't go to MD any more than I have to just because I can't carry. If I could and did come to MD more often, I would undoubtedly spend money there, and that would benefit your economy.

You are right SR9. The MD legislature is loaded with liberal progessives. Not in my county but around Baltimore and that swings everything left. These are not folks who love the constitution and want to uphold it...no they just want to get votes and pad their retirement. yes?

I was raised on the Eastern Shore and my Dad use to say, all the money Shore people paid in, in taxes went to the welfare suckers in Baltimore and the shore got nothing what so ever out of it. Today is still the same, the people tat work, get robbed so those who don't work can stand on the street corner and deal drugs and B/S. It's the Democrat Liberal Lefts Ideology of a good life at the expense of others. Suppose everybody stopped working. What would they do then? You can't squeeze blood out of a turnip.

Margarett Thather once said that socialism is great, until you run out of other people's money.
As for the new Gov., he promised gun owners to try to repeal the bad gun laws, but has already gone back on his word. He said he thought it was more important to work on the economy.
