using handguns and long guns in Michigan.

I have 2 felonies on my record that happened at the same time. The felonies involved breaking into cars and stealing radar detectors. I've since gone to college, became a Doctor,and have had no infractions what so ever for the past 22 years. The gun laws in Michigan seem to say two things. One statment says a non violent felon can own guns after 5-8 years or something. But the very next line says you can't own a gun if you've ''ever'' been convicted of a felony. I called the local police and they said the gun board looks at every case apart from others. The guy at the gun ranges says Since I can go through the federal check and its o.k. the local guys will say its o.k. I was wondering if sounds right or not? I just don't want to put the time and effort into taking the classes and fingerprints, etc. to get a big ''NO'' Can you give me some insight on this? Thanks in advance either way.
