Hey Guys, my wife's grandpa has a misdemeanor charge for endangerment with a firearm or something of that nature. My question is what are the rules for having a misdemeanor related to firearms on your record and owning a firearm? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Without knowing the penal code section or specific name of the violation, I can't give you an exact answer.

The closest penal code section that I can think that might apply to your grandfather in law is section 246.3 of the Penal Code, Negligent Discharge of a Firearm (meaning could result in injury or death). I'm not sure on the limitations for such a crime but based on my experience it is likely there is some kind of limitation.

The only encounter I have had with someone convicted of 246.3 PC, it was charched as a Felony which means no guns for life anyway unless the individual goes through the proper process to reduce said charges.

I would make sure that your grandfather in law was charges as a misdo, and then consult an attorney.

You can either post the exact name of the violation or the exact penal code, or you can check yourself if it is prohibiting from this list:
