I know MD have tough gun laws but I have not seen anyone or any Glock Clubs here. Shout!
mid-MD glocker reporting! I go to college in VA, but i'll be back in MD for the summer in three weeks.
A brand new MD Glocker here. Just picked up my first Glock today as a matter of fact.
Hey guys it's nice to see people from the old line state here! Does this forum have a section for us in the Mid Atlantic? I'm on here often so keep checking in.
I live in Maryland, south of Annapolis. I have a Glock 34. I've been trying to find a decent, well-lit indoor range in our area at which to shoot. I've been up to the MSAR range near Andrews AFB a few times. It's a fine facility with nice people, but the lighting stinks.
I live in Calvert County and I went to the MSAR for the firt time a couple of days ago. I agree with you about the lighting. After I fired a few rounds I actually went to see if they had any night sights that I could have installed. Luckily I have a friend with 270 acres in Hughesville that I am able to use for shooting, but I would still like to find a good indoor range.
Where do those of you who live in MD shop for shooting supplies and guns? It seems like every gun store that I have been to in this state charges MSRP or more on all their products. That was unheard of in Arizona, the state that I moved from a couple of years ago.

It's like a cave at MSAR. It's too bad, because just about everything else about the facility is first class. I have complained several times about the lighting, and have gotten nothing but lame excuses.
I buy 9mm and .22LR ammo from mail order suppliers, usually Natchez. There's a tackle show over in St. Marys County near the naval air station that isn't too bad on prices, and they do have some bargains from time to time. I bought a few boxes of name-brand mauser ammo there.
That place in St. Mary's, The Tackle Box, is where I just bought my G23. The gun itself sold for MSRP, but they gave me a great deal on a trade in that I had. They do have some good deals from time to time though, like recently when they were selling the new Glock Tactical Illuminators for $70. It didn't take long for those to go. Maybe a tactical illuminator and a good set of night sights would be the way to go at MSAR. If they saw their customers using illuminators it might get the point across that they need some lighting.
Last time I was there, I asked if they had a range with an electric plug so I could plug in my 250,000 candlepower spotlight. They don't seem to get it.
Hey guys ,I live in Northern Harford county around Bel air. I have a Glock 22 w/ GNS and ILS. I bought mine @ Fallston Gun and Pawn,overall they had the best price with what I have on it. There is a indoor range around here but to it's dark. There is a nice range in tomoumn(sp) but I forget the name of it. There isnt to many indoor places that i know of but any training helps.
Keep'em coming MD!
I posted a request to start a Maryland forum. If this sounds like a good idea to you, please go to the following link and make yourself heard.
The indoor range in Timonium (north of baltimore just off 83)has a website located at: http://www.continentalarms.net/
I am not a fan of shooting indoors, seems unnatural and uncomfortable to me. I learned to shoot while hunting and that rarely takes place indoors. Nevertheless, I have shot at the indoor range in Timonium and it seemed well lit to me.
I prefer to shoot outside near Westminster at the Hap Baker facility: http://ccgov.carr.org/rec-park/hapbaker.htm.
The range in Harford County that JDH is talking about is Gunpowder Indoor Range in Bel Air, just off of Rt. 1. It is a bit rundown, but the owners are very nice and the prices quite reasonable. I enjoy shooting there.
The other range in Continental Arms in Timonium. It is much cleaner and better lit and also rents a good selection of guns (Glocks, S&W, Ruger). It is also much more expensive and can get crowded at times.
Anyone want to get together for a "shoot-off"? I promise to lose with my Glock 34, but...I might make it up with my Ruger Mark III!
PG County (Bowie/Upper Marlboro) G26 owner here.. There is also a range called On Target near Ft. Meade that is indoor range. I tried to buy a Millenium Pro .40 from them the other day but they wouldn't accept my NRA Pistol class as exemption from the stupid safety video.
So screw them, I'll buy my gun online and have it shipped to a FFL that will.. I've watched that video twice before, then went to the NRA class as well (for FL/VA CCW).
We should have a get-together sometime out at a range, would be nice to meet some of the guys/gals from this site.
*Side note* Anyone know any decent prices FFL's in the area?
Frederick County here!
I don't see us getting a forum around here anytime soon, so I started one myself. Please visit!
There are a few OAFers that live in MD (including me )
