I think a small Gloc is good. They don't cost much ($400 plus tax) in the sporting goods store. I'm not familiar with the laws in the Philippines in gun ownership but i hope the police respect the fact that you have a gun license.
A gun license transcends within state to state as i carry mine when i travel. The problem is the other states where the Democratic Party have a strong presence - they don't follow the second amendment ( right to bear arms ) and sure as shet not care if you carry a gun license!
Small guns, big guns, are allowed in the dominant republican states. Every town is safe when the people have guns in their homes. My opinion.
