Had a felony charge 42 years ago. Can I legally own a gun?

Hi! I'm curious. I had a felony charge on me back in 1974 when I was 17 in North Carolina. No jail time just 24 months probation and that was the end of it. I live in Texas and would like to know if I can legally own a gun now that it's been 42 years. It's the only time in my life I had a problem. I was also under 18. Since then I've led a great life I was a pro athlete for 13 years, I've starred in movies and reality TV so I'd hope that all stand for something. Thanks.
