Will I be able to get my concealed carry permit in Berks County or be able to purchase a firearm in Pa if I have 3 DUI's within a 10 year period? I had my permit before and it expired in 2009. According to the ccw application, it asks if you have be convicted of 3 DUIs in a period of 5yrs or less, which I would answer "no". It also asks if you were convicted of a misdemeanor with a sentence that could be result in incarceration of over two years(not actual sentence received), which I would answer "yes". I was told that the firearms check and the concealed carry permit check is the same, is this true? Now, if denied would it be better to just let an attorney handle it or fill out the "Challenge Form" and try to do it myself? Thanks so much for your help!
