    propex is right! MD doesn't like us!

    Maryland does not honor any other state Permit/Licenses. Those bastards!
    Note: From the Maryland State Police FAQ’s
    Q. Are out of state handgun permits valid in Maryland?
    A. No. The only exception is to armored car drivers who posses valid permits from other states, who are On
    Duty in Maryland.​

    Transporting Firearms in Maryland
    Q. Can I legally transport firearms interstate? (From the MD State Police)
    A. Yes, under Title 18, Section 926A, of the United States Code, a person
    who is not prohibited from possessing, transporting, shipping, or receiving
    a firearm shall be entitled to transport a firearm for any lawful purpose
    from any place where he may lawfully possess and carry such firearm to
    any place where he may lawfully possess and carry such firearm if, during
    such transportation the firearm is unloaded, neither the firearm nor any
    ammunition being transported is readily accessible or is directly accessible
    from the passenger compartment. In the case the vehicle does not have a
    compartment separate from the driver's compartment the firearm or
    ammunition shall be contained in a locked compartment other than the
    glove compartment or console.

    Q. Can I legally transport my regulated firearm to the range? (From the MD State Police)
    A. Yes, provided the regulated firearm is unloaded, in an enclosed case or enclosed holster with no
    ammunition accessible, to include loaded magazines.​

    In Montgomery County Maryland the law can be interpreted so strictly that simply stopping for gas while going to /from a gun range with an unloaded and locked weapon in your trunk could be a violation of county code.

    As the others said, don't bring the weapon into Maryland.

    The following is Montgomery County Code Chapter 57-10. Just quoting it to show that counties can be even more strict than the state as a whole.
