COVID-19 CLASS POLICIES:

Until further notice, we will be implementing a new set of policies for our classes, listed below. In order to hold our classes during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we will be requiring all of our students to adhere to and respect our new class policies which have been put into place to protect everyone. 

  • All classes will be limited to twenty four (24) persons to allow for “social distancing”.
  • All students will be required to wear a mask or face covering at all times during our classes.
  • All students will be given individual soft-earplugs for use on the range. Students may bring their own ear protection to class if they prefer the “earmuff” type.
  • All class registrations must be completed online via MSAR’s website, www.MSAR.com. At this time, we will NOT be accepting any class registrations in-store. Additionally, we will NOT be accepting any class registrations over the phone. Full payment of the class fee must be made at time of registration. Registrations without full payment will not be accepted, nor will they be placed on hold.
  • Once paid, class fees are NON-REFUNDABLE and NON-TRANSFERABLE. In order to reschedule, all students will be required to re-register and re-pay the class fee in full. Due to current class size limitations, no exceptions will be made.

Maryland is a “MAY-ISSUE” state, meaning that the issuing authority may issue a Maryland Concealed “Wear and Carry” Permit to an applicant who meets certain statutory requirements (firearms training, background check, etc.). However, there is no guarantee. The issuing authority is only required to issue a Maryland Concealed “Wear and Carry” Permit when he or she finds, based on an investigation, that the applicant has a “good and substantial” reason to wear, carry or transport a handgun, such as being a business owner or employee, or for personal protection.
