Supreme Court Decision Update

We are working full-time to offer the 16 hour training to wear and carry candidates in Maryland.

What's next after the June 23rd 2022 decision?

Our best guess is that the State of Maryland will now include SELF DEFENSE as a category to apply for a wear and carry permit. It was not a listed category prior to June 23rd 2022. We believe everything thing else in the application process will remain the same. Contact your attorney or the Maryland State Police for the final say.

What can you do now?

Keep following all the rules and laws under Maryland law and the Handgun permit section of the Maryland State Police until they make changes to the wear and carry application process

We think you should obtain your 16 hour wear and carry training in advance of the changes that are coming in order to get it done and be ready to submit your application.

How do I arrange times and dates for the training?

There is a massive surge in requests for this training and if he does not answer he will return your call asap. You can also email him at [email protected] or text him.

We usually have 16 hour wear and carry candidates come to the soonest HQL class in order to refresh in safety and pistol operations. We count this towards your 16 hours. We then meet 2 other times a the pistol range (usually Schrader's in Henderson, Maryland) to complete the 16hrs

You will need a minimum of 300 bullets

You will need to pay for the instructors use of the range in addition to your fees.

Are you ready?

Pay by going to the "Make a Payment section" and contact Barry for dates. There is nothing open until July 5th 2022
