    not sure if i was arrested, will i get denied?

    Hey all,

    New to the forums and there is some great information here. I just submitted my paperwork yesterday, but I'm trying to ease my mind. I ran three different background checks on myself and all I could find was illegal operation of mv without insurance (had a fender bender with an insurance lapse) which I listed on the application under convictions. For the arrested question I wasn't sure, so I marked yes and briefly tried to list as much information as I had from a possible arrest in 1999. A someone tried to say I stole their kitchen table, but the judge threw it out. I could have sworn I was finger printed, but there is no record that I can find. To be safe from seeming to be hiding anything I listed what I could. The odds seem like this would get me denied for not being specific enough though there was no conviction?

    I've been arrested. Doesn't mean a damn thing. Police arrest all kinds of people for both legal and illegal things.

    You should have no worries.

    I figured it was better to be honest even if I didn't have all the info (crossing fingers)

    You should be fine.

    If you have any questions, feel free to contact me and I can help you out. I go to all the firearms board hearings and learned a lot about how backgrounds are dealt with at the firearms board (and how it works into the process). It may be handled in a peculiar manner, but if it is, you should still be fine at the BFPE.

    Rich B: My favorite argument against OC being legal in CT is "I have never seen someone OC in CT".
    I have never seen a person drink tea from a coke bottle while standing on their head, that doesn't mean it is illegal.
