Hey Nys gun owners. Pistol permit?

My pistol permit got denied... long story short I had an investigation 5-10years ago, where I admitted selling drugs when I was younger. Never got charged for it. Got a job and don’t even do drugs anymore (hair test) but I’ve bought rifles since then fine no problem. 

Will a denied pistol permit show up in a background check?

Thank you

And I know I’m not even going to try to fight it I won’t win that battle.

    I'm in NYS.  Yes, a denied pistol permit is a matter of public record.

    NYS has always been tough.  It took me over 2 years to get a concealed carry permit with a military background.
