Welcome from KY ...

... That said (and not meaning to derail the thread): I may have to move to MD soon, what does it take to possess a handgun in MD, Anne Arundel county to be specific?

I don't know what the requirements are to possess a handgun, but it's considerable time and trouble to buy a handgun, and it's nearly impossible to carry a handgun unless you have a very compelling reason to do so.

From my experience buying just a month ago:

Background check
Two week waiting period
Safety training/certification (available on-line)
Internal lock required for guns made after 2005
Two fired shells must be submitted to the state for cataloging

MD is one of the most gun-unfriendly states in the country.

Thanks. I think I found an answer though:

I am moving here from out of state and own a firearm, am I required to register the firearm? (Note: If the firearm is an assault pistol it cannot be transported into Maryland)
If the firearm has been obtained legally, you are not required to register the firearm; however, you can voluntarily register the firearm with the Maryland State Police.
