If you live in Maryland or the surrounding areas, you already know that Maryland has some of the strictest gun laws in the country. Maryland is a “May Issue” state, meaning they require you to provide a specific “good and substantial” reason that you need to carry a firearm. Maryland even requires prospective gun buyers to get a license before buying a gun, called a Handgun Qualification License.
Both the HQL and the Maryland Wear and Carry Permit require in-person, hands on firearms training. If you’re looking for firearms training in Maryland, PTPGun.com is the place to start. They offer everything you need to get legal to buy or carry a firearm in the state of Maryland and surrounding areas. Best of all, Ryan at PTP Guns offers these classes at various locations across Maryland, so chances are good that he’s teaching a class near you soon.
One-Stop Shop Premium
If you’re looking for everything you need to be legal in one convenient place, the One-Stop Shop is for you. You will receive quality, hands on training, including several firearms certifications. You also get the required fingerprinting and passport photos. PTP Guns will even submit your application for you. This class not only gets you your Maryland Wear and Carry Permit, but also a D.C. Concealed Carry Permit and training certificates for Virginia, Utah, Arizona, and Floria.
Women are one of the fastest growing groups of firearm users in the country. Men have traditionally taught firearms training courses, which can be intimidating to new shooters, particularly women. Now, PTP Guns is happy to offer Women-Only Classes. These classes are for women, taught by women. You can choose from Handgun 1 for the beginner, or Handgun 2 for an experienced shooter.
Basic Handgun/Rifle Training
If you’re looking for just the basics, PTP Guns can provide you with introductory classes to both Handguns and Rifle/Carbines. The Handgun class will provide you with everything you need to know to operate a semi-automatic handgun. You will also come away from the class with your completed Maryland HQL. The Rifle/Carbine class is geared toward safe handling of AR-15 style carbines, although other platforms such as AK-47 are more than welcome.
PTP Guns offers a wide variety of concealed carry classes, something for just about everyone. They offer courses for the state of Maryland as well as Washington D.C., or you can get both in the Multi-State course. If you already have your Wear and Carry Permit and you need to renew it, PTP Guns has you covered as well.
First Aid for Gunshot Wounds
Hopefully you’ll never need to use it, but there’s always a chance that you need to use your firearm. There’s also a chance you don’t get to use it in time, and you or someone near you is shot. Understanding how to treat a gunshot wound could be the difference between life and death. PTP Guns now offers First Aid for Gunshot Wounds, an introductory first aid course, and no prior medical experience is required.
PTP Guns is proud to offer Women’s Only Self-Defense courses from MMA professional fighter Tara Graff. Tara has trained her entire fighting career with men, so she has keen insight on how to defend against an attacker that is bigger, stronger, and more aggressive. Enjoy learning life-saving defensive techniques in a non-pressure, relaxed atmosphere.
