Permit to carry

PNP-Circular No. 2011-005 Re: "Possession, Carrying, and Bearing of Firearms (Revised)"

1. The Circular is merely a reiteration of well-established rules that are already in force regarding the possession, carrying and bearing of firearms. What was added were merely the expansion of the PTCFOR requirements for Military and law enforcement officers, who are now covered by the rule requiring PTCFOR when carrying their firearms outside of residence or while in civilian attire.

MAMANG PULIS -- ONLY one Permit-to-Carry-Firearm Outside of Residence (PTCFOR) will be issued by the Philippine National Police to licensed gun holders this time.

The “one PTCFOR policy” will be part of the much tougher gun control program in the country designed to arrest gun-related violence. Under the same policy, a PTCFOR will be issued to a licensed gun holder provided he or she complies with nine strict requirements, PNP spokesman, Chief Supt. Leonardo A. Espina said.
