See What Our Fraternity Has to Offer

  • Maryland Firearms Wiki
    A common body of peer-reviewed knowledge, that anyone can edit - to provide the public with a reliable, up-to-date, and easily searchable reference of Maryland firearm laws, firearm regulations and firearm facts. The community will benefit from both the crowd-sourcing of the content from subject matter experts, and a peer-review process. Other benefits include the ability to link to a complete and detailed wiki article, instead of providing the same (and perhaps less complete) repeated forum questions.

  • Instructor Membership Directory
    This directory lists licensed/certified instructors who have demonstrated the knowledge, skills and attitude necessary to provide safe, competent firearm instruction. Individuals listed have had their credentials verified and submitted to an impartial peer review process. Further, they have demonstrated a commitment to continuing education and improving the quality of instructors and instruction as evidenced by their MDCFIA membership.
