To request a copy of your criminal record from a state other than Virginia, you must communicate directly with that state authority for receipt, update, or correction purposes.
If you are denied the right to purchase a firearm because you have been convicted of a felony as described in Section 18.2-308.2 of the Code of Virginia, you may still be eligible to purchase a firearm if your rights have been restored under both state and federal law, see Restoration of Firearm Rights.
