    My philosophy in this respect is that if one has nothing, nothing can be taken from him......the bare essentials will do, no plasma tv or top notch stereo system, aircon or expensive car.....whatever i've got is ancient and cheap to replace. I understand the anger of having your private space invaded, but
    the moment i'll feel that having a gun is a necessity to ensure mine and my family's safety, I'll move on. Better option is having a good relationship with your neighbours and keep an eye open for each other.

    I think Union Jack nailed it. The key to not having problems while living in the Philippines is not to own anything that anyone else would want. The second you start piling up things like a modern television, a computer, stereo or a car you are a target....and not just for thieves, there are also those who are simply eaten up with jealousy and want to sabotage your life to make them feel better about not having the things you have.

    So, if you didn't move to the Philippines to live like a pauper, you may have some security issues to consider...

    I like Kdf's suggestion of a battery run electric wire, will try and find in Dgte. I have a little yapper dog with big ears (min pin) and thinks he is a full size doberman. Actually, my house is pretty secure with steel bolted lock screen doors, solid wood bolted doors and interior grills on the windows. Still, I don't want a-holes coming in and opening the windows whether for stealing or peaking, so gun, dog, electric wire and numerous traps (how about neck high piano wire!).

    Thanks mate. I will play it safe and have wifey fire the "one shot, one kill". Me, first I have to find my glasses, then steady my hand from shaking from too much wine, then forget what it is I was going to do.

    when we pose the rhetorical question " what is the root cause of these crimes" -- let us not forget the curse and bane of the drug culture. as in the good ol' USA, crank speed, or shabu etc turns your brain into swiss cheese and you will literally risk life and limb for your next fix. not only are these morons desperate, but also violent, combative and unable to be dealt with in any rational manner. like being in the ring--protect y jlourself at all times and make sure you have the firepower to win.
