The country’s biggest show that promotes responsible gun ownership and gun safety, Defense and Sporting Arms Show (DSAS), is closing the year with its bi-annual event at SMX Convention Center. Organized by the Association of Firearms and Ammunition Dealers of the Philippines Inc. (AFAD), the longest running sporting goods trade exhibit has been previously graced by shooting champions, sportsmen, political figures, and accredited instructors from different organizations such as the PNP Firearms and Explosives Office.

DSAS aims to empower not just men but also women, arming them with confidence and a sense of security knowing that they have the power to protect their family through responsible firearm ownership.
