Bigger Defense and Sporting Arms Show Set

The country's major gun manufacturers and dealers are ready to show their latest firearms and shooting paraphernalia at the 2009 Defense and Sporting Arms Show (DSAS) Part 2 scheduled on November 12 – 16, 2009 at the SM Megatrade Hall 1-2 in SM Megamall, Mandaluyong City.

As a result of the success of the previous DSAS events, Atty. Hector Rodriguez, President of the Association of Firearms and Ammunition Dealers, the organizers of the event, said that they are expanding the exhibit hall area to cater to the increasing demand for more show booths for new firearms and shooting accessories and the heavy influx of gun aficionados.

DSAS Part 1, held last July 16 – 20, 2009, occupied the same venue and attracted hundreds of visitors interested in gun ownership, target shooting, and airsoft. Philippine National Police (PNP) Director General Jesus Versosa and other officials of the PNP Civil Security Group (CSG) and the PNP Firearms and Explosives Division (PNP-FED) graced the opening rites.

Aside from gun displays and product presentations, seminars were also conducted during the event. The PNP-FED gave a free seminar entitled: “Legal Aspects of Gun Ownership”, aimed at encouraging gun owners with delinquent licenses to renew them to avoid payment of penalties. They also set-up a one-stop shop firearm license renewal booth during the event.

Director Versosa as well as PNP-FED Director Chief Supt. Alfredo Caballes will again grace the opening of DSAS Part 2. Seminars and product demonstrations will again be staged during the 5-day event.

The 2009 Defense and Sporting Arms Show is sponsored by Dream FM 106.7, Jam 88.3, Magic 89.9, 99.5 RT, 105.1 Crossover, DZRH 666, NU 107, Ansmann Energy, Manila Bulletin, The Daily Tribune, People's Journal, Philippine Graphic, Event Ads,, The Philippine Star, and Total Security Systems, Inc.
