Good move I bought three from offline Walmart same model for under $30.00 free shipping picked it up at the store, sorry to bust your bubble I put one in each of my vehicles and one on my work table in the garage. Can't beat it so compact and easy to use I highly recommend them.

Sturmruger,

I may well be missing something, but transporting in MD in the manner you describe looks illegal to me.

MD criminal law section 4-203 (http://law.justia.com/codes/maryland/2005/gcr/4-203.html) lists specific destinations within MD
that you must meet to be legal.

Since you are not traveling interstate through MD, the federal FOPA would not apply.

I hope I am wrong about this, because I go to MD occasionally. If I am miss-reading the statutes, please enlighen me.

I had the Barska AX11970 Biometric compact portable lock box for less than 2 weeks. Uses your fingerprints to open. Works fine in a warm environment but left it outside in the vehicle overnight and during the cold days and it would not open.  If I bring it inside for about an hour the safe will open. After the first week it got to the point that the key could not be removed after locking or unlocking. I sent the defective product back after Barska blamed the batteries and/or my COLD fingerprints.

Jack44,
I'm riding in a pickup truck with no trunk to lock the gun in. The gun is not loaded.  If stopped in MD., no one knows whether I'm going thru MD on my way home or to another state, but me.

Your rationale presumes a rational LEO.  IIRC, the guy from Florida who was stopped by the MTA just north of Baltimore was presumed guilty from the get-go.  On any trip that I take that is not a direct trans-MD route with proveable origination and destination points, I'm leaving my equipment at home.

Under Federal law, there is a "right" to transport unloaded, cased firearms through every state.
In MD and NJ, we cannot count on the local or state police respecting that "right..." especially if we are not on a major highway driving non-stop from outside the state to somewhere else outside the state.
If we are caught with a firearm in our vehicle while we are on a secondary road, stopped at a restaurant, visiting with friends, or shopping at a store, we can expect to be arrested, charged with crimes, and to have our firearm(s) confiscated.
In NJ, hollow-point ammunition is a separate crime (even for off-duty traveling LEO's)... in both NJ and MD, there are magazine size restrictions...

I know people who say having self-defense capability is worth such a risk.
To each their own... but I know people who have been in the NJ State Penitentiary, and I'd rather be dead than locked up in there (and I wouldn't last a week in there anyway). Even when I was an Atlantic City cabdriver on the night shift, I didn't carry a gun.

In Maryland the only in state carry that you would be legal would be on way to range. Unloaded and cased or in a holster.    Out for a Sunday drive does not cut it.

Lots of folks in northern Delaware do go to North East state Forrest to shoot and I have never heard of anyone having a problem. 

The Magazine law in Maryland does not apply to posession. 

New Jersey is another story

I'll be traveling to VA every other month with my son to see his grandparents and MD scares me to be honest. I do secure unloaded in the rear with firearms in one safe and ammo in a separate lockbox. I imagine I'll get more comfortable after a few trips but still dislike traveling through the state.

Unfortunately they also live north in New Jersey as well! I'll even remove the spare mag from the glove box due to the HPs and they're BS laws and behaviors up there.
