The Association of Firearms and Ammunition Dealers of the Philippines (AFAD) formally announced the details involving the 20th Defense and Sporting Arms Show set for July this month. The firearms show, which is the only one endorsed by the Philippine National Police, is set to happen in July this year. The event will put under one roof all the biggest retailers, representing all the largest firearms brands in the world in order to generate interest in firearms, educate the public about firearms in general, and provide the perfect venue for existing shooters to increase the size of their collections, as well as stock up on their weapon-related consumables.
This year, the DSAS will be reaching out to a broader audience by shifting towards a more an experiential gun show. Along this vein, there will be free seminars and industry-related activities for the duration of the event. There will also be a special “Art in Arms” section, where uniquely decorated firearms, antiques, pictures and shooting memorabilia will be on display for everyone to appreciate. The 20th Defense and Sporting Arms Show will run from the 19th to the 23rd of July this year, at the Megatrade Hall in SM Megamall.
