Maryland Wear and Carry

We teach multiple States classes for you to get your permit. We teach VA, UT, & now MD classes (the DC and IL Permit classes are coming soon too). You may take as many classes/blocks as your scheule will allow you to commit to at this time.

You are welcome to bring snacks/drinks as well. There will be breaks tho, as the instructor will need them too!

With the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, Inc. v. Bruen case ruling from the United States Supreme Court, Maryland (and all the other Concealed Carry unfriendly States) can no longer make you prove a “suffecient need” in order to obtain a permit to carry a firearm for self-defense hidden on your person.

They can however, make it exremely burdensome to do so, both from a time, and financial standpoint. Maryland (as well as DC and IL) requires a 16 hour class that must include a shooting qualification in order to apply for a permit to “wear and carry” a firearm in Maryland. So, we have developed a class that will satisfy all of the requirments and then some!

Being a 16 hour class, it is understandable that not everyone can commit to two, 8 hour days in a classroom/range in one weekend. So, we have broken the class in to four equal parts so that you can take as much of the class at one time as your schedule allows. Along the way we can get you certified for the Virginia, and Utah permits as they do not require as long of a class or a shooting qualification.

All of the classes will be in the same classroom, how long you stay will depend on what permits you would like to get certified to apply for at the end. Our goal is to get you trained so that you can apply for as many of the permits you would like, but also be a safer, more wise firearm owner so that you can have the confidence to carry your firearm in which ever state you may be traveling through.

You can now get a permit to carry a firearm on your person for self-defense in up to 42 States via the reciprocity agreements that Virginia, Utah, and Maryland have with the other States in the U.S. That is, once you put in the time/money/effort in to getting the permits. We will step you through the process of getting a Virginina, Utah, and Maryland permit during the class. Just as we do in our other classes we will provide everything that we can during the class. We will provide the 2x2 pictures (for Utah) needed, electronic and FD-258 ink fingerprint cards (once we get all the hardware and credentails setup) for now we will only be providing the FD-258 cards, you will still need to have you fingerprints taken outside of the class for Maryland & Utah. So, there will still be a few things you will need to do. We only do the training/certification for you to get the permits. We can not apply for the permits for you, and we do not issue any of the permits to you.

Class/Block Break Down :
Block 1 – 4 hours Classroom

Block 2 – 4 hours Classroom

Block 3 – 4 hours Classroom  

Block 4 – 4 hours @ Range/Shooting Qualification
You will need to bring the firearm (and a holster, & spare mag are a good idea too) that you plan on using during the range time/shooting qualification along with at least 150 rounds of ammo. You should bring eye protection, and hearing protection as well. We highly recommend wearing shirt with a sleeve of some length, jeans/long pants, and a hat. Sturdy closed toe shoes are highly recomended. We will be outside when on the range, so bring some sun screen along possibly as well. Be prepared to be outdoors!   

The scheduled Block 4 – Range/Shooting Qualification will be at PANTHERA TRAINING LLC.
