    Hi bogs,

    Here is my question. Im used to renewing my fa license via "hindi nagpakita" i spend around 2t plus, all i do is fill up the form and give the necessary pictures and sign under the dotted lines.

    for a 40 cal license how much will i spend if i go there myself? I heard you will only spend half a day to finish the license and immediately get the card. To top it all you will only spend less than 1500. Which includes gun safety,license fee and something else fee.

    how true is this? anybody renew his license via going to crame? hassle pa ba or is it easy and cheap?

    I tried it. Last time I did it (I believe early last year) I just paid less than P 1,500. The amount includes the license, tax and bond and I think the card (i don't remember it that much anymore). I just brought my old license and a current gun safety seminar.

    It used to be a bit more hassle since I have to pay the Land Bank which is outside the FED office. Last time I was there, Land Bank is already having a sort of "satellite" office inside FED who can accept payments.

    If there are no queues, the transaction will take you less than an hour (last time I did it, I was there before 8:00 am).

    Jason,

    Any news if it is still as easy (and as cheap) as what Valor mentioned? Also considering of doing this next month. Would it be a problem since I did not get my "card" and only the Yellow paper (license) on-hand?

    Thanks.
    Rod

    The issuance of license plastic may have to be 'expedited' with an additional P250-P500, depending on who you talk to. Otherwise, it takes forever. It is best to bring this issue up immediately, when first discussing your renewal.

    EDIT:
    Based on Jason's good fortune recounted below, then
    hey, me too Mannix: "Way to go FED!" :)

    ok guys i arrived at crame at 245, paid the bank which is inside fed 255, they almost closed on me.

    I was just going to inquire but the lady at window 5 said you can do it real fast.

    I got the form and good thing i had a 2x2 picture with me. i filled it up payed around 1500 for everything including xerox (pretty xerox girls there btw. flirted a bit;) )

    I was finished and was walking away at 330 with the license card. easy as pie.

    for renewal no gun safety seminar, no drug test no neuro or anything. its done in less than an hour:)

    This is way too good, I think I will go there next week. Sure beats the P3,400 my gun club is charging...

    Will they look for the previous license "card" or will the Yellow paper suffice?

    they just got a photocopy of my card license. maybe you just need yellow copy if your card is not there yet. or you can go there and ask if your card is there na and then renew it;)

    i wanted to but there were too many people around and it would probably would take 30-45 mins and more tapping than double tap;)

    Had my license renewed today, was in at 1PM and out by 2:30PM. Kailangan lang talaga medyo sigurista ka when dealing with govt employees. They wont volunteer to help you with the procedures, reqmts. so make sure you before you fall in line to the next counter you have the previous person sign the "routing" form and ask questions - they are being paid by you're tax money anyway.

    Pansin ko lang 3 types of people in the queue: 1) "mga tagalakad"- mga singit ng singit pero di sinisita ng teller dahil "familiar face" ; 2)mga senior citizens (50-70) yr olds who dont belong to a gun club; 3)gun owners na nagtitipid and want to make sure na valid yung license (with records in crame) - just like me. :cool:

    Aside from the expired Licence, Fee and Patience, what other materials did you guys bring in your license renewal? Thanks Sirs.
