Try it & find out. Go to a gun store & have them run you. With an NICS check it should only take a few minutes. Your reward for passing the check - a new Glock.

Since I don't know the answer, you might want to ask these guys.

IIRC, they only affect you if it's a class A or if it's domestic violence. Even with the class A, you'd still be good since it was more than 5 years ago(again, IIRC).

Here is the code on getting a CHL, the restrictions on buying are probably the same.

GC 411.172. ELIGIBILITY. (a) A person is eligible for a license to
carry a concealed handgun if the person:
(1) is a legal resident of this state for the six-month period
preceding the date of application under this subchapter or is otherwise
eligible for a license under Section 411.173(a);
(2) is at least 21 years of age;
(3) has not been convicted of a felony;
(4) is not charged with the commission of a Class A or Class B
misdemeanor or an offense under Section 42.01, Penal Code, or of a
felony under an information or indictment;
(5) is not a fugitive from justice for a felony or a Class A or Class
B misdemeanor;
(6) is not a chemically dependent person;
(7) is not incapable of exercising sound judgment with respect to
the proper use and storage of a handgun;
(8) has not, in the five years preceding the date of application,
