A felony under the federal gun laws is any crime that could have possibly resulted in a sentence of more than one year.
The problem is that the statutes online don't tell what the potential sentence for a felony dui were back in the early 90s. What you need to do is to get a copy of the original indictment and judgment and the rest of the paperwork from your actual case to see what the potential sentence was then. If it was more than a year, then you are prohibited from owning a gun under federal law.
