    Man of few words, eh? :)
    I'll take a shot anyway...


    What the license does:

    A firearms license allows the holder to possess a single
    specified firearm for use as a personal self-defense
    implement, only within the owner's residence specified
    in the license, and to store the specified firearm only
    at the specified residence. The license technically
    allows you to store up to 500 rounds of ammo (depending
    on type of firearm) appropriate to the firearm licensed.



    -You can't just discharge your firearm, even within your
    residence, short of a legitimate self-defense situation.

    -You can't bring your firearm outside of your residence,
    (let alone discharge the bloody thing anywhere else!)
    unless you first obtain one of several types of PTFA's
    (also known as PTT's) or else a PTCFOR (or carry permit).

    -You can't store your firearm 'at your other residence'

    -You should familiarize yourself with the legal aspects
    of justifiable self defense with a firearm. Lots of threads
    here you can look up for applicable law.

    -You should realize that knowing the law is one thing, but
    knowing a good lawyer is anther. Best to have both.

    -You should know how to shoot effectively and safely. Joining
    the practical shooting crowd will teach much of both.

    -Know your residence inside out: where your lines of fire
    are optimized; where you cannot shoot for risk of harming
    members of the household, neighbors or bystanders;
    where your last stand should be, etc.
    -------

    Of course, if you were actully asking about licensing procedure,
    that's a whole other kettle of fish...

    What? 500 rounds storage only? I've been in the shooting sports and a gun fanatic for about 15 years or so and I've stored a bigger ammo depot than that. I'd rather not mention it here but its x times over.

    That's what the printed legalese dictates.
    'Course, short of a FED assault team
    breaching your perimeter to audit your ammo stash,
    who's gonna know how many rounds you actually have?
    ;)


    OT:
    I'm still traumatized over what was done to that USGI (US&S) 1911.

    It expires on your birthday.

    You are lucky if you are born on Feb. 29.

    A VERY IMPORTANT FACTOID INDEED
    from manong ante
    :) :) :)

    PNP-FED allows you to renew a month in advance
    (or even more) before the license expires.
    **and jbuisan , it's just plain 'horge' :)

    I believe these are simply equally spaced. Does it matter how many they are? The person I know in FED just informed me that as long as there is a hologram, then this is a valid license

    Not the multi colored hologram you can see in plain view...place your FA i.d. under a U.V. light or fake money detector.

    If the firearm does not have any papers then it's not clean. It's as simple as that. :)

    They can probably check it from FED, if the firearm has an exprired license or was reported lost/stolen. Pag may kaso, saan kayo 'yon. :headscratch:
