Over the last decade, DFC has successfully trained HUNDREDS of clients for the CONCEALED CARRY PERMIT.
EVERY CLIENT WE HAVE TRAINED, RECEIVED THE PERMIT.
DFC provides the 16 hours course required for the initial MD Concealed Carry Class. THE COURSES ARE SET TO MEET OUR CLIENTS' SCHEDULES, SEVEN DAYS A WEEK. The legal use of a handgun in self-defense is explored at length. Also examined is the critical selection of the handgun you intend to carry concealed. Our clients train with and shoot the best examples available, the GLOCK 43X, SIG P365XL and S&W .380EZ, among others to help them make an informed choice of handgun and demonstrate the skills required to achieve effective, real world concealment. DFC teaches applicants the shooting skills needed to fulfill and surpass the the MSP 70% requirement. After nine years, our average qualification score remains 96%.
With the Supreme Court's landmark 6-3 decision, individual States can no longer arbitarily deny their citizens the right to carry a concealed handgun on their person. The decision does not, however prevent states from imposing licensing fees, mandatory training, minimum qualification, types of handguns permitted nor a magazine capacity limit. So, it remains to be seen how all this will sort out.
With the exeedingly high volume of applications being submitted to the Maryland State Police the normal 90 day turn-around will most certainly be impossible to maintin. It might even be a shorter turn-around. Please be patient.
YES, It will be acted upon in the order they were received. Make no mistake, there will be an avalanche of new applications. (100,000 at last count): better to be on the top of that pile than the bottom. Contact us so to schedule the course you must complete before submitting your application.
If you have no criminal history or history of mental health intervention and do NOT possess a Maryland Medical Marijuana Card you will be issued the permit as soon as your interview and background check are completed. PERSONAL PROTECTION IS NOW A SUFFICIENT REASON TO BE ISSUED A MARYLAND CONCEALED CARRY PERMIT.
