No need to encourage me to purchase one of your fine derringers, I already did! I live in Maryland and ran into a problem at time of purchase. The USA Defender was not listed on the ‘approved list’ for the state of Maryland to be legally sold. I patiently waited for the next update to the list only to find that it was still not on it. In the meanwhile, my derringer sits in the safe of the company I bought it from awaiting the needed approval.
I finally got in touch with “Al” at Bart’s Sporting Goods who happened to know someone on the board who approved all handguns to be sold in the state. After a brief discussion, it was determined that the USA Defender did not need to be added to the list since the original “Defender” model was previously approved and on the list. Boy, talk about a bureaucracy!
Anyway, I will pick up my USA Defender this Saturday and let you know.
