    i am 18 years old and i am wondering if it is legal for me to purchase a SU-22 in Maryland. Here is what i know about the state laws:

    1) i need to be 18 to purchase a rifle or shotgun.
    2) i need to be 21 to purchase a handgun.
    3) i need to buy from an FFL dealer (duh).

    what i dont know is the classification of the SU-22 and whether or not i can buy it at 18.

    if anyone knows the classification and can help me out in any way that would be awesome.

    thanks.

    Kel-Tec registers the SU-22 as a rifle, however you may want to check your MD regs for barrell length, mag capacity, threaded barrell, etc.

    Hey b, MD qualifies the SU-22 as a rifle, and a non-regulated one at that. You'll have to find a dealer/distributor who can sell/send it with a smaller capacity mag, but that shouldn't be too hard; I'm a MD resident and I just ordered one yesterday.

    How far we've come from "shall not be infringed." :-/

    I hear ya. Availability issues aside, I can't legally own a PMR-30 because it's not on Maryland's "approved" list. >:(

    Well said!

    The idea that a government has an approved list of firearms they will allow citizens to purchase is completely contrary to the intent of the second amendment in our Bill of Rights.
