I might have to move to Maryland by the end of the year. I know that Governor Glendening is in a race with California Governor Davis to create the most restrictive gun laws in the nation. I'd appreciate it if someone from Maryland (or is knowledgable of Maryland law) could fill me in on the legalities of owning a pre-ban Colt Sporter (14.5 barrel, flash suppressor, collapsible stock, but thankfully no "evil" bayonet lug). Thanks.

Don't move to Maryland...commute. Garbage state, corrupt politicians, Dyke Senator, high taxes and rampant socialism. PG County run by the inmates too wimpy to survive SE Washington. Montgomery County run by fat socialist shit, Attorney General hates guns and is vocal about it. Don't go quietly...

This guy isn't even exagerating! You couldn't do much worse than Maryland for gun laws. To add to Trakehner's list, current gov is a corrupt commie butt-hole, and Baltimore is one of the worst most dangerous cities in the US (I work downtown, so I know what I'm talking about!). If you must come to Md for work reasons, try to make your residence in Va. or Pa.. Both have MUCH less stupidity with regards to their gun laws. Plus their taxes are much lower and housing is cheaper. Whereabouts in Maryland might you have to work?

CCW is virtually impossible in Maryland. High crime (#1 in robbery for 6 years now), high taxes, too much government, very transient population. I just escaped after 9 years and fled to Pennyslvania. $19, 1 form and 4 weeks later, I'll have a CCW. I can buy Beta-C mags, 30 rounders, etc... up here. If you HAVE to live in Maryland, buy any non-Hbar AR-15's, mags over 20 round capacity and pistols now.

Unfortunately, my luck-of-the-draw in life will bring me to Silver Spring (in the above mentioned Montgomery County) and I'm afraid that commuting won't be an option. The good news is that it shouldn't be for more than a year or two. My concern right now is whether there exists some type of ban (calif style) on bringing AR-15 style weapons with me.

Why not? I live and work in VA and there are plenty of the types described above working here. There is currently a debate about adding a bridge from Loudoun VA across into to MD to allow more MD A-holes into VA. I say to hell with that, Lets blow the existing bridges and seal ourselves off from that cesspool.

In a year or two they may well have such a law.

You should at least try to get outside of Silver Spring. Maybe find a place up near Frederick, Md.. To answer your other question, there is no law saying you can't bring it when you move in, but be advised that AR15's require registration in Md., just like a hand gun. Unless there is an extreme reason you can't commute, say, 40 miles each way, I'd still look into Va. or Pa..
