How do you get your permit?

The process starts by taking a 16-hour course that covers state firearm law, firearms safety, and handgun mechanisms & operations. Once you have completed your course you can begin the application process. We recommend that you start your application right after taking the course since you can go back to completed it. We recommend that you print your application and gather the necessary information before finalizing it in the system. Some of the information Maryland State Police includes list references, information regarding your spouse, employment information, and other details regarding your background. You will also need to get fingerprinted at a live scan eligible fingerprinting provider. Maryland Department Public Safety and Correctional Services maintains a list of providers to choose from. You will also need to get a digital passport photo. There are various apps that can be used to generate this photo. Once you have completed all of these steps you will be ready to apply for the wear and carry permit on the MSP Website. In our course we cover how to apply and will be more than happy to go over any questions you have. We also have a background that you can use for taking your passport photo.
