Maybe. While a sealed record may make you eligible for a pistol permit, the inquiry regarding a pistol permit application is wide-ranging and may include youthful offender adjudications, dismissed charges, and sealed records. The licensing agency will also consider other factors when considering whether to grant a pistol permit application including your criminal history, your moral character and whether there is any history of mental illness. The bottom line is that a sealed record is not a guarantee you will be able to obtain a pistol permit.
