Maryland Online Gun Safety Training

Please note: In the state of Maryland, our gun safety course Introduction to Handgun Safety will not qualify you to apply for a concealed carry permit. Yet many Maryland residents do use the course to obtain a non-resident permit from Virginia for CCW reciprocity reasons. This course is also accepted by the courts in many states and municipalities as evidence of firearms training.
