so you are saying you cant get a CCW living in MD, or that most CCW licenses are denied.
i know google brings up a million hits, but i dont see definitive answers to - you can obtain a CCW, you can own magazines that hold more than 10 rounds in a handgun - you can purchase high cap mags, etc.
Call your local permit issuing authority. If you don't know who that is then call the state police, they can tell you who to call. Those are your best answers.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
