Local CCW courses

Trying to do some research on the different CCW courses offered around the Wilmington area and thought I’d ask for some other people’s input. Are there some that are more thorough than others? Any you’d suggest staying clear of?

Crazy question. Why doesn't NCC have gun ranges?

PA Resident, what are the legalities of bringing a firearm into DE for a training class?

Specifically, a pistol, perhaps a rifle. I've also got an SBR, which I know would require a permission slip from the ATF, but if I wanted to take a training class, are there issues with bringing pistols with me? Can I just pack them in a bag, or do I have to do that ridiculous thing where it is sitting in plain view in my car?

Bump Stock situation

So, now that SCOTUS killed the bump stock ban(thank you Clarence Thomas!), are we able to purchase them now? What do we know about this, and the legal situation around that?

Best way to sell rifles

I have a few AR style rifles that I would like to sell to fund other items. What’s the best way to sell in DE now? Gun broker? armslist?

I understand I would need to make them compliant and transfer through an FFL.

Is a Remington 870 legal?

To make a long story short, my buddy is selling an 870, with the pistol grip if that makes a difference. Before I pull the trigger, pun not intended, would it be considered DE compliant? I'm uncertain of its capacity as I believe that matters.

Reciprocity and open carry

I have a Florida ccw and I know there is reciprocity but does that extend to if I move here permanently or just to a visitor. Also, I’ve seen conflicting things about open carry; can you just open carry as long as the firearm is legal with no additional permits?

Understanding DE Laws

I am trying to better understand the laws.

Assuming a semi automatic centerfire rifle has a fixed magazine, is it then okay to have the items listed (a.-f.) that would not be allowed should the magazine be detachable?

Tactical rifle

I am looking to add another rifle to my collection, and I prefer something tactical in design, but different than the AR platform since I already have a few.

I was looking at the Ruger Carbine, CZ Scorpion, AP5, and wanted to see if anyone else had any good suggestions for what may be available and also DE compliant.

Miller’s Gun Store in New Castle was Robbed

Someone backed a truck through the front of Miller’s and stole a bunch of guns. Here’s an article about it:

https://6abc.com/post/firearms-stolen-after-vehicle-drives-millers-gun-store/14878955/

I’m curious if they stole the $30k over/under he has had in the display case behind the counter for many years. Whatever they stole, you can bet those guns will be showing up in crime scenes for the next few years.

Ammo recs near Dewey/Rehoboth

Heading to DE in August, coming from a restricted state where buying ammo is harder than buying weed. Any recommendations in DE coming from I-95 south and heading to Dewey/Rehoboth? Yes, I’ve searched here and found a few but looking for any more recent recommendations along the route. Thanks for any advice!

AR Pistol question

If an AR pistol has a brace installed, and the magazine is not detachable, is there any length requirement on the barrel? I understand I can’t add a grip to it without it becoming an SBR, but wanted to make sure barrel length on the pistol with brace wasn’t a concern?

Local pistol coating/painting?

I'm in New Castle county and was looking to get a polymer pistol coated/painted. It's black and I'm looking to go to grey or fde. Anyone local in Delaware/MD who does this for a good price?

M-14 Legal to ship to Delaware?

I've been looking all over for any info or someone else asking this question. The law bans by name the M1A but says nothing about the M14. Are they legally distinct from each other?

HB 357 in DE

Does anyone know much about this bill? It doesn't sound very good for DE folks in terms of self-defense.

https://legis.delaware.gov/BillDetail?LegislationId=141067

https://legis.delaware.gov/json/BillDetail/GenerateHtmlDocument?legislationId=141067&legislationTypeId=1&docTypeId=2&legislationName=HB357

I don't know what they are thinking (are they thinking in DE House and Senate?), but this would preclude gas-powered launchers like those from Byrna.com I believe. Probably a number of other items that could be used to repel or for self-defense also may be out.

Thoughts??

Elk Neck rifle/shotgun closed.

Just went there today and the rifle/shotgun ranges are closed down and fenced off since Dec 31 3023 according to a sign, which also states the closure is because of structural damage needing repairs. I hopped the fence and everything looked fine to me. I'm out of places to shoot out to 100 :(

If denied a CCDW, what should I do next?

Title. I haven't actually been denied yet or have even submitted the papers. My record is pretty much spotless and I meet all of the requirements, but I really don't want to get caught off guard. It's a "may-issue" state, so you can be denied for whatever reason. I want to be prepared in advance.

What's the next course of action I can take as soon as I figure out my permit was denied?

Keltec P17

Does anyone know if the Keltec P17 is compliant? It has a 16 round mag and it’s a standard .22lr pistol, but here’s the catch… It only comes with threaded barrels. That seems to be a potential problem with the new law. I haven’t seen a version with an unthreaded barrel. Has anyone bought one since the law change?

FFL approved, manufacturer not

Purchased a Palmetto State Arms PA-15 16” AR. Chose my FFL in Wilmington, listed on their site, payment secured, order complete. All good. Next day I call the FFL to give a heads up. He says “well it’s not compliant but no big deal, that’s my job-to make it that way.”

Week goes by, nothing. Still saying “Order pending” so I call customer service. Within 15 seconds he cancels the order citing compliance. “Well we can’t sell this in DE”. What if I hadn’t called? I guess I wasn’t as surprised as I was annoyed. The disconnect between Palmetto, DE, and the FFL is wild. Why is my FFL thinking he’ll get the gun if the law is so “straight forward” and strict? Why is there no GPS logic built into PSAs website, barring me from making the purchase? I’m half venting, half at a loss. Thanks 😅
