    I was arrested for a dwi over a year ago and will be completing deferred adjudication in November and it will be dismissed... will I be able to buy and own a handgun after it is dismissed? I have looked all over and can not get a straight answer.

    Thanks mooner91

    was your DWI a felony?

    do you have a lawyer?

    are you an alchy?

    Ask your attorney what "Deferred Adjudication" means.

    Congrats on the 1 year. Keep up the good work.

    I haven't had a drop pass my lips in 3.5 years.

    You never lost your ability to legally buy and own a handgun. Misdemeanor DWI is not a disqualifying offense.

    If your case was dismissed i don't see the problem. But i am not a lawyer.
