Ok this is probably going to sound a little weird but my ex-gf called me the other day and informed me that her dad would like to go shooting with me on their farm in the Cumberland area. Obviously her and I didn't get along. However her father and I got along great.
Now on to my actual question(s). I have a couple AK's, an AR, assorted other long guns, and 8-10 pistols. All of the magazine fed firearms have only hi-cap magazines. Would I have any issues if I were to bring any of these firearms into Maryland? What are the laws concerning transporting of so many firearms? Last time I was there I was ignorant of MD's transport laws and transported my pistol the same way I do in DE. Which is to say there was a round chambered and the mag topped off sitting on the passenger seat in plain view. However after reading here and being a little wiser I have found that if anything had happened I would have been in a lot of trouble with the law to say the least.
Thanks in advance.
Rifle/Shotgun OK; SBR/SBS/Pistol NOT OK*.
Magazines are not banned, so you can bring them in.
* You could argue that you are transporting for informal target shoot, but honestly I wouldn't want to try my luck on the side of the road.
Some guy was headed out of town here in Waldorf a several years ago and got pulled over with a van load of firearms. He didn't have a good day that day.

I'd say if you have a email from your host inviting you to come and shoot on his property, you might be ok bringing a handgun into the state (Not a Lawyer!).
Ex GF and a farm? It's a trap! You'll never be found in those woods.
That news article is the last thing that I would want to happen. It would just validate everything that my parents have ever said about my collecting.
I think what I'm going to do is take a trip to the police barracks next time I'm heading to the Cecil County Dragway and see what they have to say.
And Enfield that was the first thought that ran through my head. Haha.
