You need a lawyer. Not a Texas LEO. Not a bunch of internet gun guys. A lawyer. One versed in both TX law and federal law. Remember that what you say to your lawyer is privileged. What you post on the internet is not.
Edited to add: Here's what federal law has to say on the matter:
18 U.S.C.A. § 922 (West)
(g) It shall be unlawful for any person--
(1) who has been convicted in any court of, a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year; . . . .
to ship or transport in interstate or foreign commerce, or possess in or affecting commerce, any firearm or ammunition; or to receive any firearm or ammunition which has been shipped or transported in interstate or foreign commerce.
I'm a lawyer, but I'm not your lawyer. If you need some honest-to-goodness legal advice, go buy some.
