    Requesting for info, mga Sir! Puwede bang ( legal) na magpadala ng reloading components diyan sa atin ?? Of course, no waay ang powder, primer, bullets. I can figure that one out and it makes sense. How about press/dies and specially brass?? Hinde ba bawal???

    Salamat na lang po!!

    Meron dating gun dealer na sinubok magpuslit nito pero nahuli. katakot takot na paliwanagan at multa ang inabot. Kung walang kakilala sa taas mukhang makakasama pa sina Robin Padilla sa kulungan.

    Thanks for the info. No I am not planning to take any risks what so ever. Just checking the legality.Sometimes na kaka discourage nagplanong mag retire sa atin dahil sa ganyan lalo na kung mahilig ka sa baril.

    Salamat na lang mga, Sirs!

    Just bring your money and buy a reloader in the Philippines from legitimate sources that could have the reloader licensed in your name.

    It's kinda strange that reloaders have to be licensed in the Philippines. However, it's one way to keep track of where reloaded ammo goes, and for the PNP to generate income from licenses.

    It's different in the States. You reload for your personal needs, and you might not want to sell reloads because of liability issues. But in the Philippines, you can earn by having a reloader. You can hire somebody to operate it, and it can give you a decent return.

    I agree Isuzu..More than ever I really appreciate my second amendment right...As much as love my mother country there are always issues that bothers me. Goodness, I just realized I have spent most of my adult life in Texas.. of all places! Of course it will be tough for me to undestand why the government wants to track my reloads.. Oh no!! I don't want to get started!!

    Have a great day ya'll!! And Maraming Salamat Po Sa Lahat!!

    p.s. Please tell me it's just an APRIL FOOL'S JOKE!! Hinde naman kailangan ng license para mag reload!!:rofl::rofl:

    We'll think about it from another angle: 1) There are no insurgents in the US, 2) Loose guns are abundant here, 3) A reloader could equate to a lot of trouble if it falls on the wrong hands.

    Anyway, its a valid exercise police power by the State. Kahit naman sa 'Tate pwedeng isuspend and reloading rights nyo if may valid excuse to do it. (kahit pa may constitutional right kayo to bear arms, police power is still something na mas mataas dun).

    Thanks for your inputs. I won't engage in discussions about how country has laid down rules regarding our hobby. I abide with whatever law that is laid down.I just did not know the rules about reloading and was just checking. Just like asking, "can't I sent thru balik bayan box a navy seal knive"..

    BTW with regards your perception...

    kahit pa may constitutional right kayo to bear arms, police power is still something na mas mataas dun)

    Hinde po accurate ang stament ninyo_Our constitutional rights is beyond wayyy beyond police powers..:wavey:

    Thanks again mga kabayan!!

    Well we follow US authorities regarding that matter =)

    Kingsun:

    Well not really... constitutional rights will always be subordinate to Police Power and other inherent powers of the state . Example: The State WILL and SHALL violate the constitution, and validly do so, if its existence, is at stake (self-defense/right to exist) or Executive Priviledge, which infringes on the right to information, which the Philippines adopted using US jurisprudence or Eminent Domain which violates property rights.

    (If anyone noticed im using extreme case scenarios here just to show when can constitutional rights be violated, or bent, without violating the rule of law).

    Anyway, in Constitutional and Political Law there will never be a simple yes or no answer. You could even answer it either way and still be correct, provided you have a legal basis to support your answer.



    PS: OT na ako hehehe last post ko na to dito.

    But the US doesn't just mess with its constitution unlike us in the Philippines. Kung gugustuhin natin, bawat isa't-isa may kanya-kanyang version ng constitution.
