Pistol Brought Back From Korean War Questions

My grandfather brought a Beretta back from his time in the Korean War and I dont think it was ever registered here (here being Maryland). The gun was passed down to me a few years ago and I'd like to cover all legal bases with the gun so that I can take it to the range and not have to worry about it.

So my question is this: Do I need to get this gun registered in some way? And if I go to register the gun, is there any chance it could be taken from me? Say for having had it in my possession for so long without registering it? That may be a dumb question, but Maryland gun laws can be a headache and I dont want to lose the gun, its very important to me.

Any help is very much appreciated

If you don't find the answer in any of the above, you might check with a local firearms dealer, the American Legion and/or your local police department.

@WC12,
It is questionable whether it is safe to call the police about it.
Y not call the NRA at: 800 392 8683 ( when the robot answers, press number 4 )

Explain the situation; u might get referred to local legal counsel
who is up to date on Maryland.

Ask him if he 's heard of the WOOLLARD case.
