A pellet gun won't likely kill a dog but if it does, provide funeral services.

Well, pellet guns will certainly kill a dog..some of them shoot up to 1000 fps..you can buy those in Philippines..I don't know  the legalities but they are available..I have sort of been looking into them when I'm bored to shoot rats at night at the birdhouse.. lol if you're shooting dogs shoot them at night and shoot them away from your house..lol..you can always put some antifreeze in a bowl that solves the problem too.

I do, they do not require a licence, are not regulated, and are legal for anyone including foreigners to possess and use.

My Crosman 1.77 does 1200 fps. When I checked out the scope we set up cans 30 meters away. I thought I was missing. When my partner checked the can, every shot had gone clean through the other side without the can moving.

I have shot one feral dog. A large cobra a few weeks ago. But mostly I take shots at crows that come in to steal all the babies from nests in our garden.

Many modern air rifles have penetration equivalent to a .22LR, and many of them have scopes mounted for accuracy. They are quite capable of killing a dog.

I certainly would not want to kill or seriously wound a dog unless s/he actually ravaged my cats.  I just hope to give them a good sting to remember me by.  There is the one concern of lead poisoning from the pellet, however that could cause some harm.  If I was any good at throwing rocks, I would prefer that.  But a good pellet in the thigh should get the dogs attention.  Best I can hope for.

When we were kids My brother pepperd the neighbors yappy Chihuahua  dog.  Until the owner approached him and said son. "Please refrain from shooting "Zipper"  as the vet removed 8 BBs from his hide.". .....

I was denied purchasing an air rifle at Gaisano grand ... So I thought foreigners can't own even air guns... Not sure though.

I was told by a gun shop in Cebu City that air rifles are included under the firearms law, and the law is a little vague as to whether or not air rifles are included.

Quote

(l) Firearm refers to any handheld or portable weapon, whether a small arm or light weapon, that expels or is designed to expel a bullet, shot, slug, missile or any projectile, which is discharged by means of expansive force of gases from burning gunpowder or other form of combustion or any similar instrument or implement. For purposes of this Act, the barrel, frame or receiver is considered a firearm.

Yes, it does mention gunpowder, but then it goes on to include other forms of combustion and any "similar" instruments. What does that mean? Who knows. I guess that's why there are so many lawyers in this country.

Look here for the complete law on firearms...

I would like to buy a good quality pellet rifle for target practice and to use against dogs who wander on my property and chase my cats. Thankfully none have caught my felines family. Does anyone have experience with pellet rifles? Or know where to purchase one? Brands? Quality? The manager of my property had a pellet rifle but it did not last very long. It used a CO2 cartridge and seemed to have a good range of 30 meters for accurate shots. Are there any restrictions on ownership? Thanks ahead.

I have tried CO2 cartridge type a few times with new pistols being assured that they had fixed the leakage problem. I have not found this to be the case. You are far better of with a spring action. A good rifle's pellet is doing 1200 fps and will go clean through any tin can at 30 meters.

I guess it's another case by case situation. A PNP I was talking to in a gun shop assured me it was ok to own. What they are really after is firearms. No one is supposed to have a firearm but for sure all my neighbors do. One shopkeeper in town actually told me he would go back inside, get his gun and shoot me for parking outside his shop (recorded). I guess they should more concerned about the peoples volatility.

Well to each his own i will say in my 17 years here i have learned after being introduced to the court system a few times..   there is a law to cover almost every possible thing that can happen but in the end as there is NO JURY  system it will always be as the judge decides to his way of thinking  and no one goes to court even found NOT GUILTY  without a cost so as they say here ITS UP TO YOU

As others have said, pellet and bb guns are not legal for foreigners to own 

 

Basically, almost anything that shoots is considered a "firearm" and illegal for foreigners. Doubt any of us (excluding Filipinos) could get through the registering process, unless someone was pulling strings fraudulently.

Erm, it's the Philippines? Everything is fraudulent including BI. First pistol we were offered was an Armscor Firestorm by the retired provincial chief of police.

"Everything" is illegal. You cant even badmouth a Filipino.

Doesn't make much difference to me. I taught my partner to shoot and she now has better eyes than me popping off lit candles on the perimeter fence.

I just pop off murders of crows from the bedroom window that attack the nests in the gardens. Personally I would try to find another way of dealing with stray dogs. Shoot somebodies dog here and you will be in a shitload of trouble. They even try to get money for loose chickens that get killed.
