Association of Firearms and Ammunitions Dealers of the Philippines (AFAD, Inc.) was founded in 1989 with the aim of representing the interests of the defense and security industry. With its very own governance and regulations, AFAD Inc. exists to consolidate firearms dealers into an integral forum, and to formulate and impose self-regulating policies for the industry. AFAD Inc. closely coordinates with the Philippine National Police and other agencies concerned in minimizing illegal trading and importation of weaponry. AFAD members are the first to set the example by maintaining high ethical standards in doing business, strictly complying with the rules and regulations governing the arms industry.
AFAD Inc. also supports the government’s campaign against loose firearms and private armies. The association has always been active in supporting other organizations and promoting responsible gun ownership. In the shooting sports, AFAD Inc. has been supportive of talented Filipino athletes who bring recognition and honor to the country in all international shooting competitions.
