Sir, found this advise from US Department of State website: http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_p.../cis_1468.html

"...Customs authorities may enforce strict regulations concerning temporary importation into or export of items such as firearms, religious materials, antiquities, medications, business equipment and other items . It is advisable to contact the Embassy of your destination country in Washington or one of that country’s consulates in the United States for specific information regarding customs requirements. In many countries around the world, counterfeit and pirated goods are widely available. Transactions involving such products are illegal and bringing them back to the United States may result in forfeitures and/or fines.... "

A similar entry is found in the US Department of State site: http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_p...s/cis_999.html

" Customs: Philippine customs authorities enforce strict regulations concerning temporary importation into or export from the Philippines of items such as firearms and currency. It is advisable to contact the Embassy of the Philippines in Washington, D.C. or one of the Philippine consulates in the United States (Chicago, Honolulu, Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco) for specific information regarding customs requirements. Counterfeit and pirated goods are widely available in the Philippines; transactions involving such products are illegal and bringing them back to the United States may result in forfeitures and/or fines..."

I suggest better examine your purpose of travelling to the Philippines with a firearm. Or reconsider bringing the firearm in the first place. Maybe even before you could board an aircraft or enter a US airport terminal, you will have problems already. Anyway, the Philippines is safe relatively, unless you are going to some areas of concern. God bless and warmest regards.

+1 to what Toby said.

In addition, your relatives in the Philippines will be in a better position to advise you on ways to stay safe and places to visit in RP that are far from harm's way.
