Don't worry, no more drinking and driving for me. I lost my grandfather just after my 2nd DUI. He was drinking and went head on with a telephone pole. I ended up going to jail every weekend for a year. Anything more than 1 beer and I'm not driving. And no excuses here but my 2nd DUI I had a BAC of .06. Since I have a CDL anything over .04 is drunk.
Back to the subject at hand. the hole mental thing is where I don't want to fuck up. I remember signing myself in and my Mom says I signed in but this is something that happened 16 years ago.
By chance when this happened 16 years ago were you a minor? That may be keeping you from finding records if they've been sealed. Also if you went voluntarily then it's probably in your medical history and may be confidential.
If you get the LTCF then it's safe to assume you can buy a pistol.
PS- That CDL .04 limit is a bullshit law. Just another way for them to extort money from a working man.
Lots of folks have things in their backgrounds they're not aware of. The http://ujsportal.pacourts.us/DocketSheets/CP.aspx you refer to is the "Penna Public Portal".
If you really want to know where you stand from a "record(s) of past behavior" standpoint, drop a couple bucks -when you have it - on a lawyer. He'll be able to pull a "real" background check for you, and there won't be any more guessing or worrying...at all.
That plus patience should see you through. Best of luck.

Now that is a bunch of bullshit right there, do they wait for one day a month to run all the checks?
Or is that their way of letting licenses expire.
My last two in Indiana Co. took me less than 15 mins. each time.
Filled out form at counter, girl made call, left with new license.
Next time I write my state rep, I'm going to once again mention the way this is handled across the state.
As for the OP, I love how one DUI turns into two as a thread progresses.
If you were involuntarily committed, a judge or someone would have had you forced into the institution probably against your will and with you throwing a fit about it, you really would think you would remember that if it happened that way.
OP, if you intentionally lie, you are in for a shitstorm, if you are confused (as it seems you are) you can always plead ignorance and ask for leniency.
Doesn't the 4473 say something like "to the best of my knowledge" where you sign it? Maybe not, I can't recall since I never read it.
Indiana County renewal - five minutes or less. Spent more time in line waiting to hand in my application.
I called PSP in Harrisburg to see if they had been notified that I was involuntarily committed. The trooper's response was, "HUH?" I tried explaining the situation how they are notified and if I was I would be prohibited from owning or obtaining a LTCF. In the end the trooper was no help at all. I ended up going to the hospital today to sign a records release in hopes that my 16 year old file is somewhere in storage.
why dont you just sit back and wait for an approval or denial to come in tohe mail . There is nothing you can do now that you already turned in the app
