I would at least check with a lawyer first, even if you plan to plead guilty. Does this charge carry any chance of jail time? If so, definitely get a lawyer. It sounds like it is a not too serious offense but getting the gun back is tricky. Texas law may require it to be destroyed or the court may have the option of detroying it OR returning it. Even if there is no possiblity of jail time and/or the court has the option of returning it, a good lawyer can go in and work out a deal with the DA for you. Even if you decide not to hire one, they can explain all the options beforehand.
