Regulations on Pepper Spray in Pinas....

53 posts in this topic

Who here knows about the Laws regarding Pepper Spray for use for personal protection?

 

1. is it regulated like in some states in US?

2. can you carry on person and take to malls or boats or planes?

 

Anything else I/we should know about having this item for "personal protection"

I would think that the carrying and use of a highly concentrated Mexican food ingredient that has been pressurized would be considered OK, as long as the container is labeled correctly, but maybe that is just my opinion.  :D

Im not aware of any. Its sale and possession are not controlled.

Planes definately no.

Boats I would think so, as PTC holders take their guns on some boats, and some boats they make them check their guns... 

 

ITs sold in malls (but then so are guns). Seeing as the mall is private property it would be up to the malls policy if you can possess it there. If their representative (a guard) tells you no, then its no. They represent the owner.

 

Anything else I/we should know about having this item for "personal protection"

 

You should hope your not in a gun fight using it. And some people aren't affected by it very much. ALso, you should have it sprayed on you before you use it because it is very likely you will feel its effects when you use it. Especially indoors or if you catch the wind the wrong way, and if you have a severe reaction or are extra sensitive to it, you just lost your fight.

 

Also it does lose its potency over time. The legit stuff has an expiration date on it. I wouldn't even bother carrying it unless it was from a reputable manufacturer whose label could be trusted. I think less than lethal personal protection items should only be viewed as a last resort for people who can otherwise possess and effectively use a more effective means of personal protection. ITs best use is in less than lethal force by LE who are held cosely to an escalation of force continuum standard.

"In the Philippines, the use of pepper spray for self-defense is legal, and it is freely available in stores."

I carry it for dogs, wouldn't even think about using it on a human.

Well, I should hope that I'm not in a gunfight without it too!

Guys, this is more for my wife and her friend.  They may be working late and leaving the shop alone, so if anyone ever threatens them, they can "spray" and run away.

 

That's the main reason for it: Spray and run Away

Its the same with the bear spray - you are supposed to spray and run- not get in a fight with the bear !!

      Very strangely this is not being reported anywhere in the mainstream news. Last nights (Sat) 7.50 from Ormoc to Cebu collided with another vessel not too far from the port of Cebu. Wife's parents were passengers. MIL texted us at home around 9.30pm that they had just hit another vessel while still out at sea. Sadly the collision was at full cruising speed and apparently "rear ended" another vessel, a barge or similiar sized vessel. Almost all of the passengers which appeared to be not numerous, sustained some injuries, but no deaths. The response of 2Go is being slammed by all aboard, with not telling the passengers any updates, to not giving out where berthed info to making the walking injured walk to waiting relatives outside the port. A large proportion of the passengers were asleep at the time of the collision and have sustained injuries consistent from being thrown from a seat, cuts, abrasions, missing teeth, severe bruising etc. It has been said that the 2Go vessel rode up and onto the other vessel. Quick thinking crew on the other vessel tied the two together to prevent the 2Go cat from becoming adrift or possible sinking.

      I'm driving to SFO later today (Sat) and will land in Cebu Monday morning... pretty damn excited, not looking forward to that long ass flight. I will take a small hit at currency exchange at the airport for some quick cash, then go to a Bank by the mall later on. I am bringing some cash and trying to avoid the fees for using my CC in Cebu. Lots of tee shirts, shorts have been packed, flip flops, sandals, and a pair of comfortable slip on's and short socks for the slip on's (not for the sandals  ) some American snacks, protein bars, and I plan on buying a ton of bottled water... no tap. I had a few trips scheduled but the weather looks like it will cancel a couple of them... just going to play it by the seat of my arse.  This will be my first visit in what I hope will be many. This is a precursor to possibly living there in the coming years once my mom (who I take care of) passes... I am so out of this chit state of Cali!!!. On paper I am planning on 3 visits this year, next in July, then at the end of the year, probably Christmas time (only if I am good with the first visit) I will be meeting the woman I have been talking with for half a year, and I will be meeting a member from LINC who befriended me after I got blasted by a few on here when I mentioned meeting a woman, and how I was supposedly doing it all wrong. (Thanks to Shadow for giving me some pointers) If I don't like the Phils then my next targets are Belize and Chiang Mai (possible business op with a friend) Nothing carved in stone, but I hope the Phils works for me. I'll probably be silent for about the next 2 weeks... but no promises if I feel I need to share some pics or something. In regard to pics... I noticed on here there are very few photos of of the members or things they are doing etc... shy? Scared? Protective? Too ugly?    Peace

      Is this normal in the Philippines ? Is this wacko or am I living in an altered state ? My long term girlfriend is getting ready to sign a contract for an unbuilt half of duplex of 26 sq. meters for half a million p. in a small city in Mindanao. Nice fight ensued on Valentines Day. I have visited but will not be moving there for a year and have no idea about buiding costs in the area. This seems way off the chain to me, but what do I know? Any knowlegeable input would be appreciated.

      A friend has an Iphone 5 and it needs a screen, can anyone recommend a reasonable and reliable place to have it done? I may bring it with me to get it fixed for him if it can be done for a reasonable amount
