HOW to APPLY for a MARYLAND Carry Permit

Please read: This thread is intended as a living document so that we can collect any and all information surrounding the application process and keep up with any changes that may occur along the way. The first set of replies will be reserved for future use, so when this Title pops up as a thread. Allow us time to get some information in order.


Thank you for you patience.

As of now PLEASE Post a reply with any information you may have about the permit application process.*

*PLEASE refrain from posting any information you are not sure of.
Just because your cousin Zeke told you his neighbor said it, does not necessarily make it true.

Verified information will be updated on an ongoing basis. Be patient.

Topics of interest:
Finger printing / Live SCAN / CJIS
Photos
How to fill in pages and lines on the Application Form
Link to the Application Form
Updates and Changes to the Process as things unfold

NOTE 3-7-2012: as of this time, if you can afford it, MSI suggests submitting an application. DO NOT use your rent money or try this if you are having trouble paying your bills. Your money may be "held" for a while, worst case scenario, you could lose the amount and not get a permit..worst case.
*If you do no apply immediately, but have some spare change, consider donating to MSI so we can push this issue over the top of the mountain and care for the politics, public education and any other necessities that may arise.

Guide for applying for a Maryland Carry Permit on the MSI website: MSI How To Apply

INSTRUCTIONS

MD State instructions for applying for a carry permit can be found here:
Maryland State Police Handgun Permit Instructions.pdf



APPLICATION FORM

*Use BLACK INK ONLY when filling out the form!

A copy of the Application Form can be found here:

MD Carry Permit Application Form

This is an application form that shows photos can be 2" x 2"
http://www.msp.maryland.gov/LinkClic...d=429&mid=1072

or here

http://www.mdsp.org/LinkClick.aspx?f...d=423&mid=1072

The Application Form contains instructions. It also has places to fill in for Private Detectives, Security Guards, etc.
We will NOT cover anything outside of an Individual applying for a permit.
If you are a Security Guard, Private Detective, or employee of a frim requiring weapons carry, please refer to your employer/agency/business for instructions.

MSI's John Doe example Application filled in.pdf

(need verification this is 100% correct) > The normal citizen with a clean record will fill out pages 7, 12, 13. If you do not have a clean background/record you MAY have to fill out Page 10, based on your answer from page 7. Convicted felons need not apply. If you think there is a reason you MAY not be approved, you should check with someone like a lawyer or an authority who can give you some guidance. Falsifying the application in any way is a Crime. They are going to perform a background check, they will find out anything you may be withholding, 'nuff said.

Q: do you have to fill in employment record if applying as an individual? Or is that only for employees of firms requiring it for work?

FINGER PRINTING

2012 Finger Printing Rules from the Licensing Division can be found here:
MD Licensing Division 2012 Finger Printing Rules.A.pdf

As of March 16, 2012 they will no longer accept inked finger print cards.
This means you will need to go to a location that uses/supports Live Scan/CJIS. This technology takes a digital image of your fingerprints and directly uploads them into the database.
You will be given a special receipt when you use Live Scan, this receipt should also be attached in your application packet when you submit it, make a copy of the receipt for your records, send the ORIGINAL in with your Application.

Finger Printing Info can be found here, courtesy of Inigoes: http://www.mdshooters.com/showthread.php?t=77747

Live Scan / CJIS locations: http://www.dpscs.state.md.us/publics...gerprint.shtml

PHOTOS
Each applications requires 2 photos of yourself be attached. They should be 2" x 2" against a white background, showing head & shoulders.
They must be taken within 30 days of the date you place on the Application. You may use computer generated digital photos, or go to a place CVS or Walgreens, etc. to get them taken.

The App Form says 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" , however, there is an application form listed above, now, that states 2" x 2" (see above).
*HoCo SHooter called to verify that 2"x2" size is fine, per MSP. They actually would like to change the form to read 2"x2".
2"x2" is the norm for Passport and NFA/BATFE forms. It is what CVS, Walgreens and the rest are accustomed to. Thanks HoCo!

This appears to be a good checklist to follow.

Quote:
by user OnTarget on page 9 of this thread:

Below is a portion of the printed information (cover sheet) to MSP CCW application. This may answer a number of question that have been asked. Here's what it says from their website:

CHECK LIST – FOLLOW ALONG AND YOU WON’T GO WRONG

1. Licensing Division – General Application – Completely, accurately, legibly, and truthfully completed in ink or by typing. MUST BE NOTARIZED

2. Fingerprint cards (FBI and State) or receipt from an approved electronic fingerprint provider attached to the Licensing Division General Application.

3 Two 2 X 2 inch passport type photographs of the applicant from the shoulders up. The photos should be in color, and the applicant should not be wearing a hat or sunglasses.

5. Authorization for Release of Information form. MUST BE NOTARIZED

6. Reachable references willing to speak on the applicant’s behalf. Difficulty locating references will further delay the application process.

7 Details in response to a “yes” response of the application. This information must be complete and accurate as a background investigation will be completed. Use additional sheets, if necessary.

8. Any documentation to respond to issues concerning drug or alcohol abuse and/or addiction from the health care provider as to treatment and prognosis.

9 . Any documentation to respond to occurrences by the applicant where he/she was institutionalized (voluntarily/involuntarily) for any psychological evaluation or treatment to include documentation from the health care provider as to treatment and prognosis.

10. If not a United States Citizen, provide one of the following documents; Permanent Resident Card, Employment Authorization Card, Birth Certificate (born abroad) and form I-94. If you are a Naturalized Citizen; provide one of the following; copy of your Naturalization Papers; a valid U.S. Passport.
********
Hope this helps.

SoMD

The MSP barracks in Leonardtown will not give out fingerprint cards to take over to the Sheriff to be fingerprinted.

Saint Marys county Sheriff wants you to bring the cards with you.

NOTE: anyone calling 410-764-4501 or 1-888-795-0011 (toll free) to make an appointment.

The MVA will only schedule live scan for the next week only, anything beyond that - you will have to call at a later date.
