it's not advisable for people residing in provinces coz you need to go to Camp Crame to process everything, you must first bring along some requirements like: firearm license, R2 clearance, NBI clearance , it should be noted that R2 and NBI clearances must be for application for PTC only, your written request why you need/want a PTC, regional PNP certificate for proof of threat, drugtest and neuro psychiatric test for PTC application. If everything is ready you need to wait in line in Camp Crame and process everything. The lagay thing is a "who you know" inside the crame processing, if nobody knows you, you must get in line every window in each processing step or if your brave enough to observe first and approach a person inside then a lagay thing is possible. The time it takes to process depends on how the hardwork was done by you. This is as far as I go sir boy laki, I got my PTC at a gunstore.
I might be wrong on some areas here, pls. correct if ever.
