could anyone tell me how i could get a federal background check done on myself ,or is that the same check they do when i buy a gun at the gun shop? any info will help .
USMC is correct. If you were in court for it, it will be in a record somewhere! I had a similar instance, only it was 20 years ago. It was buried in the archives, it didn't make it to the computer - it was still on paper. I contacted the original town court, because in Schenectady, you have to provide an original letter of deposition. Furthermore, in Schenectady, if you don't disclose but it is found, you are automatically denied.Simple answer is to disclose it on your pistol permit application. Sealed records get brought up during investigation. If it turns out they cant find it then it still looks good on you for telling the truth. If you dont disclose it and they find it then your not going to be in a good place. I hope that helps.
