The Maryland Handgun Qualification License (HQL) allows Maryland citizens to purchase, rent, or receive a handgun. It is not a permit to carry a concealed handgun. For CCW, please see our Maryland Wear & Carry classes.
We provide you with hours of training by live instructors (not a multi-hour video) licensed by the Maryland State Police. This allows you to ask all the questions you need and includes your practical exercises and live-fire training. You won’t be sitting for hours listening to us talk!
This course includes classroom instruction, practical exercises, and live-fire qualification. Safety gear is required and can be provided at the class. A signed Waiver and Assumption of Risk is required for this class. Download, print, and sign our waiver (waiver file link) before you come to class.
