Unfortunately, although the state doesn't consider this a conviction, the Federal government is looking at this quite differently, because you do have to take a plea to get a deferred adjudication. Since Florida did not deprive you of your gun rights, the Federal government should honor that. But they didn't.

The only thing you can do, therefore is to appeal the denial with the FBI. The form and the instructions are online. You can get more details here.

what does WH ADJ-PROB SP COND mean? and after i send in the appeal will i still be denied?

Adjudication withheld- probation special conditions. A withheld adjudication means that no conviction was filed with the court.

You don't have a conviction, so you should not be denied your gun rights.

You'll need official documentation of the fact that this was an adjudication withheld. The clerk can tell you where you get that.

Good luck!
