You should be ok in Texas since Alabama gave you a permit. (I'm assuming yours is a conceal carry permit equal to our CHL)

Someone more knowledgeable than I should be along shortly.

If you have a legal permit in your state, and your state has reciprocity with Texas, then you should be fine. The offenses you described shouldn't be an issue unless you are applying for a Texas non-resident permit.

So the question, which you should be able to answer with Google, is: Does Texas have Concealed Carry Reciprocity with Alabama.

+1. So long as you were issued a permit in your home state you won't have a problem assuming Texas honors your Alabama permit.

I'm not a lawyer .... and.....

well, youthful offender convictions are usually supposed to be gone once you become an adult... you don't have to consider them.

Oh, and this would be better addressed either in Legal or General...

good deal mods... you moved it.

There could be a catch to this.

From MN law;
Subd. 3.Notice.

(a) When a person is convicted of, or adjudicated delinquent or convicted as an extended jurisdiction juvenile for committing, a crime of violence as defined in section 624.712, subdivision 5, the court shall inform the defendant that the defendant is prohibited from possessing a pistol or semiautomatic military-style assault weapon for the remainder of the person's lifetime, and that it is a felony offense to violate this prohibition. The failure of the court to provide this information to a defendant does not affect the applicability of the pistol or semiautomatic military-style assault weapon possession prohibition or the felony penalty to that defendant.
I would guess that their could be other states having similar laws.
And I would bet something like that would pop up in background checks also.
