I do have one quick question im looking at adding to my collection of firearms. I'm wondering if i can be approved for an CLASS 3 weapon with a non-violent felony "drug felony" i was 17 when i got it, it is expunged. I know that any government background check can still see it but regular jobs can not.

I have been all over the web trying to find an answer which is how i came across this site. Theres lots of great info and will defiantly continue reading.
oh and I am 21

Thanks.
if you can buy a gun now on a quick check ( form 4473 ) at a gun dealer. then you can buy a class 3 weapon

BATF CANNOT search your house without a warrant, ever.

If your record was expunged, that means a state appointed or elected judge ordered all records (affidavit, officer's report, statements, anything in a case file) destroyed. That would mean the arresting department, court and state/county/city attorney's office would destroy documentation.

However, if you were CONVICTED of the crime, it will most likely still show up on a state criminal records check. It will almost surely show up on a national NCIC record check as well. You are merely a name, DOB and SSN plugged into a computer. Nationally maintained computer records of convictions are not removed.

Your best bet would be to contact BATFE before you do anything and not your state offices. You need to talk to the national offices. This will probably require a letter to there legal dept and and afew mo's wait for the reply. When going in to NFA firearms the usual friearms laws don't apply. I would hate to see to fill out your form 4 send it in with the $200 for the transfer and be denied and they won't refund you your $200. People have been denied for as little as a $100 bounced chk that they didn't make good on. Call them first and they can direct you on what and where's etc. to do. Most questions they will not answer over the phone. Some one here mentioned earlier in this thread about a pre-86 model. I'm not quite sure what he ment but it sounds like he is talking about a pre 86 dealer sample unless you are a dealer you can't get it. If he ment the gun needs to be made before 86 he needs to mention that the gun is transferable to eleviate any confusion. I hope this helps. Good luck Trigger

Basically the best rule of thumb is if you can buy a handgun you can buy an NFA item, so long as your state allows it, and you do the proper paper work of course.
