As long as it wasn't a felonious DUI conviction, you should be good to go.

Just make sure that if you try to dros a new weapon.....that your Drivers Licence is valid....or you will get a DMV turn-down. If thats the case.....I think a Ca ID card will do.

If you are on probation, you should make sure it doesn't violate your probation.

A simple conviction for CVC 23152(a) & (b) should not trigger any firearms prohibitions.

Fine, restricted/suspended license, 3-years informal probation. Probation terms are usually violate no law, drive only while licensed, do not drive with measurable amount of alcohol in blood.

Ive never heard of a "possess no weapons" provision in a DUI probation.

My biggest concern is the DUI conviction means you miss a payment, progress report or your insurance company screws up some paperwork your license gets suspended. Driving on a suspended with a trunk full of guns wont end well.

As long as you stay on top of your probation terms, programs and license status you should be good to go.

14 years ago I got a "wet" reckless (one step below a DUI) and blew a .06 sBAC. I have bought many guns since then and am good. Just pay your fines, go to your School Ten, and please, don't drink and drive anymore. It was the most expensive lesson I ever had (except my ex girlfriend).

A DUI is like the lowest crime tou can get sans a infraction. You will be surprised how many many people have been popped for DUI. Cops, firefighters, DA's, politicians, George Bush, etc, and they are not prohibited from carrying or owning firearms. Just don't get caught again and all is good.

ya you guys need to be careful. When i was young i used to do a lot of stupid things. Howevver the older you get the wiser you get. Last thing i need is a dui. So i can honestly say it will never happen to me. Nothing will infringe on my right to own a firearm.
