Default Maryland State Service Rifle Championship

The schedule is posted for Fort Hill Rifle and Pistol club in Cumberland Maryland.

http://www.fhrpc.org/

There are 5 EIC matches scheduled with a raffle of a engraved lower receiver. In addition to the EIC matches, the Maryland State Service Rifle Championship will have lowers as awards for 1st, 2nd, & 3rd as well as a few special categories. The championship will be a 80 shot match at (200, 300 & 600 yards)

There is also going to be the first annual vintage rifle championship. It is a 2 day championship.


This is a really nice range, fairly low wind value. Hotels are in the city of Cumberland, about 15 minutes away. There is a state park 10 minutes away that a campsite with electric cost $30. They also have a casino and golf course at the park.

I invite all you hard holders to come out give it a go.

What are the legal issues facing people from free states bringing in ARs and handguns?

I know that I would have to unload and secure my carry handgun at the border, but will I get arrested for even having it without some special MD-issued piece of paper?

What about the rifle and its magazines?

I am not a lawyer, so take my legal advice with a grain of salt.

You are correct, it is very unlikely any ccw permit you have for a handgun is valid in Maryland. Unless you are some form of law enforcement.

To my knowledge there is no law against owning or traveling with a 20 round AR mag. They just cannot be sold with in the state.

As a Maryland resident, I can still buy a H Bar Ar-15. The heavy barrel is exempt from the additional regs passed October 2013. ANYONE owning ANY AR 15 before October 2013 is ok.

No one can bring a M1A made after October 2013 into Maryland.

You can try to look at the Maryland State Police website, but it's not all the helpful.

Bottom line, 99% of rifles used in a EIC match are not a problem.

ARs are legal in Md. They can even be purchased or built as long as they are in a post ban configuration.

If travelling through the state as long as you adhere tk transport laws you should be good to go.

Guns in trunk in locked case. Ammo in a separate part of the car not loaded in mags.

Also you will love this one but you cannot make stops in md with a firearm in the car. Never seen it enforced but its on the books. Drive to where you shoot and drive home is essentially the law.

If you come down maybe we can meet. Ft Hill is about an hr from my house and i would like to try to attend though 600 yards is a bit intimidating to me.

Also no concern on mag limits. You can own anything here but you cannot buy sell manufacture or trade a magazine over 10 rounds in the state.

I believe the law about m1a pertains to if you want to establish residentcy you cannot do so with an m1a after 2014 as they were banned in 10/13.

And no i dont believe md honors any carry permits except law enforcement.

You can bring in an M14/M1A if you owned it prior to 10/1/2013.

You can bring in a heavy barrel AR-15. You may bring an evil barrel AR only if you owned it prior to 10/1/2013.

You can bring in any mags, just don't transfer them within state borders.

You may make stops while traveling with non "regulated" firearms. Regulated firearms include all handguns, and banned long guns. For example, you may make stops with an HBAR AR-15, but not while transporting an M1A or evil barrel AR.

Mags may be loaded and may be stored in the same container as firearms.

The thing about ammo being stored separately from firearms and firearms being in the trunk is not required in MD law, but it is under FOPA if you wish for its protection in interstate travel. Otherwise, you're completely subject to local laws.

Best bet is to not give cause to be pulled over. Watch your speed on 68 if you go that way. Keep your vehicle clean of anything gun related, incuding NRA stickers and the like.

Guys, while it is true Maryland is a terrible state to live and be a gun owner, participants in an EIC match are fine. Fort Hill is the only private 600 yard range in the state, and the club has been around since 1944. At last year's championship, 85 % or more attendees were non residents. ( west Virginia is only 10 min away, Pa is 15 min, VA is 45 min.)

Unless you are doing something to draw attention i honestly wouldn't worry about it. While the laws here are truely crappy most of the those that enforce them are of the same mindset esp in that part of the state.

Arguements were heard last Wednesday over Md AWB at 4th Circuit Court of appeals in Richmond. Interesting to note that NRA is not on the list of plaintiffs. I have good faith that common sense will prevail.

I'm about 5 hours away but Fort Hill has an interesting mix of matches. I might swing out for one this summer.
