Normally you are not allowed to own, possess, purchase, sell or pawn a gun while you are on probation. It could be considered a federal violation (felony).

You may be able to get your permit, but you cannot possess a gun as a convicted felon. You pled guilty, so you are a convicted felon.

Talk to your probation officer. Generally, a condition of probation is no weapons. Read your probation order.

There is no such thing as a pistol permit. Any person who has not been convicted of a felony can own a firearm. Now, if you want to get your Concealed Handgun License, that is a different story. The Concealed Handgun Law sets out the eligibility criteria that must be met. Applicants must be at least 21 years of age (unless active duty military) and must meet Federal qualifications to purchase a handgun. A number of factors may make you ineligible to obtain a license, such as: felony convictions and some misdemeanor convictions, including charges that resulted in probation or deferred adjudication; pending criminal charges; chemical or alcohol dependency; certain types of psychological diagnoses protective or restraining orders, and defaults on state or city taxes, governmental fees, or child support. Eligibility requirements can be found in Government Code section 411.172.
