I just stumbled across a thread with a similar title that had been viewed over 10,000 times on this site (Will you keep a gun when living the Philippines?). I have a question similar to that: Can a foreigner own a hunting bow as in the professional compound bows deer hunters use here in the USA? Or a cross-bow?? You could certainly take out an intruder with either of these and it would not wake up the neighbors either - at least not unless they hear the fellow screaming his last breath. Would such a weapon need to be licensed and/or registered? Comments welcome. Thanks.
