    By law only natural born Filipinos may have a firearm licensed to them.

    It depends, Chief.

    Firearms are generally bought sight-unseen.
    Getting the call from the store, telling you your firearm is all registered,
    licensed and ready for pickup, should take 2-3 weeks.


    However, if the vendor's lazy and short on ethics... :upeyes:
    If there's yet ANOTHER one o' those 'puter meltdowns at PNP-FED... :sad:
    if the gun you paid for wasn't actually in stock, or even in-country... :shocked:

    I've heard of some poor owners waiting months for their fully paid blasters.
    Your registration damage for a handgun ought to be under PhP3,000.
    Add another 1-3k if you have stooges run down a bunch of paperwork
    for you.

    Horge,

    thanks for the response. For us folks who are contemplating returning back for good, how about writing some guidelines, for example ....

    " How not to get taken .."

    Btw, I remember vividly some benefits extended to returning professionals. Would you know if this is still in existence and perhaps some pointers on how to avail these benefits..


    Thanks a lot,

    stglock

    Well I have met some expats who claimed that they had gotten permits. they had told authorities their lives were in danger/had kidnap risk. They were firing at Armscor all alone, and their guns were theirs not Armscor's, and they walked out carrying their guns, so I suppose they really did have permits. They carried Glock 19s and CZ-75 compacts.

    Yup, hope to see you there! I'll be shooting at the Clark range as soon as i'm legal to carry (after the gun ban of course). I'm only about 15-20 minutes away. :)

    Well I think one only needs some supporting pesos in order to get the permits

    hey stglock, r u leaving san jose pretty soon? Magre-retire ka na? Bata ka pa ah! besides, mawawalan ako ng shooting buddy niyan. Anyway, let me know if you're already in the neighborhood so we can schedule a range time at TM. My photo session with a good friend's family last Sat put off my plan of visiting the range. Nakikain kasi ng dalawang beses.

    Lets talk more about you're planning getting FAs plus paperworks for dual citizens in our country. Shoot me an email when you get back in town.

    Hi!

    The United States and the Philippines operate under different
    principles when it comes to citizenship. The former mostly applies
    the tradition of jus soli: if you're born on American soil,
    you qualify. The Philippines observes jus sanguinis, which
    places emphasis literally on the blood running in the subject's veins.

    Since 2004, many Americans of Filipino hereditary descent have
    qualified for dual citizenship, and the Filipino half of said dual
    citizenship accords them full privileges regulated under Philippine
    firearms laws.

    I invite non-Filipinos contemplating residence in the Philippines
    to look up the matter of dual citizenship on the web.

    :)
