Alan Dale Goeas, a federal prisoner, appeals pro se the district court's denial of his 28 U.S.C. Sec. 2255 motion to vacate his sentence imposed following his jury conviction for being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition. We have jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C. Sec. 2255, and we affirm.


In his section 2255 motion, Goeas raised five issues regarding the district court's calculation of his sentence under the Sentencing Guidelines. He failed to raise these issues in his counselled direct criminal appeal. See United States v. Goeas, No. 92-10718 (unpublished disposition) (9th Cir. Oct. 25, 1993). Goeas has waived these issues by failing to raise them on direct appeal. See United States v. Schlesinger, 38 F.3d 485, 487 (9th Cir.1994). Accordingly, the district court's denial of Goeas's section 2255 motion is




The panel unanimously finds this case suitable for decision without oral argument. Fed.R.App.P. 34(a); 9th Cir.R. 34-4
