Default Can I buy any type of gun with an expunged record?

I am 22. I was interested in buying a shotgun for home protection. When I was 12 I was adjudicated as a delinquent in the state of Pennsylvania. I do not wish wish to name the charge for privacy reasons. I was never "Convicted" of a felony but was instead adjudicated as a minor. I am pretty sure that my records were sealed at 18. To this day, when I fill out any type of application, I was always told to not check the box that asks if i was convicted as a felony. I recently got a job at walmart as a part time job during these college days, and I got the job. I know that they did a background check. And since i got the job, im pretty sure it came up clean.

Should I be clear to buy a firearm in the state of Pa? I dont want to talk to a lawyer or look through legal doc's. i would much rather have a clear and simple answer.

If you could answer this, it would really make me happy

You may get "put into research" but come back approved. Happens all the time to two friends of mine who were arrested for petty shop lifting when they were 16.

Only way to know for sure is to just go try.

this may be true.. but what I had was would be equivalent to a felony. I thought that shop lifting was a misdemeanor. I was never "charged" just adjudicated. I would rather solve this on a forum than go in and look like an idiot. At 18 arent all juvenile records sealed anyways?

Misdemeanor's can still prevent you from purchasing a firearm. Since you weren't convicted of the felony, you're probably ok. Somebody else should know for sure.

I love the advise, just a few questions. Is there some proof that these are the only two charges that would carry over? and if there is, why these two?

If you are right, im going tomorrow to buy my shotgun!

This is untrue. I have no idea why you would post that.

I have the answer, but alas, I'm a lawyer, and you ruled that out.

For anyone else, look at 6105 (c)(7).
