Association of Firearms and Ammunitions Dealers of the Philippines, Inc. (AFAD) holds the second part of it’s 27th AFAD Defense & Sporting Arms Show until today, November 18 at the Megatrade Hall of the SM Megamall in Mandaluyong City. Taking the cue on the success of the show’s first part last July at the same venue, AFAD President Alaric Topacio said more than the usual Arms Show is in the offing as over 61-member exhibitors have joined to showcase the biggest collection of firearms, ammunition, gears, and paraphernalia.
Aside from the product displays, the AFAD, in collaboration with the Philippine National Police (PNP), has lined up seminars and educational programs on self-defense, responsible gun ownership, firearms safety handling, regulation policy on gun-ownership and other exciting activities.
“AFAD is using the show as a platform to educate people about responsible gun ownership as we join the government’s efforts to fight the proliferation of illegal guns,” said Topacio. “Also, enthusiasts can bring their families, as well, as we have lined up programs and activities for wives and children.”
Senators Ronald ‘Bato’ Dela Rosa and PNP OIC Archie Gamboa were guest speakers during the opening ceremony on November 14. Also present are the officers and representatives of the Philippine National Police (PNP) and other law enforcement agencies. “The PNP together with the AFAD is also providing an LTOPF caravan to help gun-owners process their gun-license application and renewal, so our visitors have the luxury of faster processing for their gun licensing needs while viewing the best products available,” said Topacio.
Topacio said that the AFAD is steadfast in the promotion of sports shooting and responsible gun ownership for all qualified individuals. “AFAD is not just for supplying the best firearms, ammunition and accessories for recreational, sporting activities and security details. The firearms industry breaks bread with all stakeholders and helps the government in its fight against the illicit trade of firearms and for the promotion of responsible gun ownership,” said Topacio.
