The Frederick County Sheriff's Office provides fingerprinting services for Maryland's new Handgun Qualification License.
Unless otherwise exempt, as of October 1, 2013, a person must possess a valid Handgun Qualification License before they may purchase, rent, or receive a handgun. You do not need a Handgun Qualification License to own a gun you already have. The Handgun Qualification License is only needed for purchasing, transferring, or renting a regulated firearm after October 1, 2013.
Services are available from noon to 5:00 p.m. from Tuesday through Thursday. Fingerprinting is provided as a walk in service at the Frederick County Law Enforcement Center, located at 110 Airport Drive East, Frederick, Md. 21701. No appointment is required.
The fee for the license is $54.50. For more information call 301-600-4058.
