I got charged for DUI, plead guilty to Reckless Driving punishable by 364 days in prison (Suspended in my case), I am trying to buy a gun in WA state, I already have a concealed permit, but question 11b on the firearm transaction "Have you ever been convicted in any court of a felony, or any other crime, for which the judge could have imprisoned you for more than one year, even if you received a shorter sentence including probation?" is very tricky and I want to be sure before I answer, since false answers can lead to a felony charge.
The question asks if you've been convicted of a crime punishable by more than a year in jail and you have already correctly identified that your conviction carried a maximum of 364 days.
