As someone who lives in Owings Mills, it's frikkin far away from Andrews AFB. I bought my LGT at a used-car dealership right next to Andrews. It's like an hour and 15 minutes in ideal conditions, more with traffic. If you live anywhere around Baltimore, live in Anne Arundel County... Glen Burnie or Elkridge or Hanover or something.
Not all of PG County is bad. Laurel is okay, from what I hear. There are some other not-terrible areas there too. The real problem is that PG County schools are awful, but you said that's not an issue for you.
