I have been considering chopping my inexpensive shotgun down to the legal limit for home defense use. I don't know much about the laws, but I believe 18.5 inch barrel is shortest I can go. Can anyone confirm that is the case in Maryland? I believe that is a federal law. I'm just not sure if there are any over-riding local laws. I also understand that the OAL must be at least 26". Is that correct?
Can I saw it off myself without any legal ramifications?
