Greg, Not sure how intelligent all our answers are at times, but perhaps we get lucky from time to time. This really is a different country in many ways and we as expats can get blindsided just because of those differences. I think that many other expats that have been here a number of years could write a book on just how different this place is and the (mis)adventures they had during that first two years or so of adjusting to life in these islands. Even after over 10 years I still see and experience new and or strange stuff every day-Hahaha.

Default Bolo knife as a weapon

Along with the thought on use of deadly force, that still does not allow a firearm use by a foreigner for such. You would still be charged with illegal use of a firearm and deported no matter what. If a firearm is to be in ones home, it is best to have the wife well trained in it's use..
I have the bolo knifes in the house as protection but I have heard carrying these around or in your car if caught could be a problem, these vendors and stores also sell the Rambo looking knives.

I'd rather use an ax handle or ball bat if needed, knives are too messy for my tastes lol.

whatever the law is I was a bit taken back when I found out teenagers carry Palm guns firing twin .22 shots.

a .22 vs Bolo? no contest

rule no 1 here is stay out of trouble even if you are 100% right

years ago malls used to check in odd places when checking entry. later found out from my then GF it was for the then prevalent micro/palm guns

welcome to Philippines
