I am assuming, based upon the fact you did a 120, that you received an SES ("suspended execution of sentence") and were, therefore, convicted of a felony. If you were convicted of a felony, you are forever barred from possessing a firearm. If you plead guilty and received an SIS, you are permitted to own a firearm in Missouri, but you are not eligible for a concealed carry permit.

Pursuant to §571.070 RSMo., it is a Class C Felony to possess a firearm if you have been convicted of a felony.

The previous two attorneys nailed this question. There is not a hunting exception either.
