    Try it & find out. Go to a gun store & have them run you. With an NICS check it should only take a few minutes. Your reward for passing the check - a new Glock.

    Since I don't know the answer, you might want to ask these guys.

    IIRC, they only affect you if it's a class A or if it's domestic violence. Even with the class A, you'd still be good since it was more than 5 years ago(again, IIRC).

    Here is the code on getting a CHL, the restrictions on buying are probably the same.
