Information on applying for CCW in MD
Also here, and more concise.
What you need:
Where to get your fingerprints taken care of. Find a place that does them electronically. There is a list on the webpages
What the application form looks like. You need 3 references that have known you for 2 years and are reputable. You need their full name, address, employer name, and resulting phone numbers for their work and home. You need the application notarized. You need the notarization and fingerprinting and submission via the mail to be close together,in time, so nothing 'expires.' Don't delay. Do it all in one week.
For the reason on the application on why you want a CCW, don't put "to stick it to the Man!" put: "For self defense and all lawful purposes." or summat. NOW you don't have to cite police reports of actual threats. It's Shall Issue now.
Get 1.5x1.5 passport photos, 2.
I've lined up references. Not for a passport photo and that place will probably also do notarization, so I'll come back to it after I get the fingerprint chit. Then it's just put them all together and mail it with the check.
G-m-rG-t- - What LabRat said, what Ken said; Rule #1 is still, "Don't be a jerk," I'm done.
