HOW TO OWN A PERSONAL GUN

I.

INTRODUCTION: The visit in ARMSCORP provides me into different things. One of which was

the knowledge, experiences and remind me of having personally owned gun prior my retirement. These experiences were the first times to happen in my life wherein I personally see and observed how the guns are manufactured. Base on the presentation, it was presented that ARMSCOR produces and makes quality hand guns that makes ARMCOR the difference worldwide as their way of life. ARMSCOR delivers the best value in firearm and ammunition products anywhere in the world. This can be proving through the Company history and accomplishment and dedication in making high quality firearms and ammunition. The industrialization of firearms involves precision investment casting using ordnance steel; the exacting accuracy of Computerized Numerical Control (CNC) machinery; and craftsmanship. The Tuason family has traditionally maintained leadership over three generations the quality and craftsmanship of having standard manufacturing of firearms and ammunition. The ARMCOR is guided with their motto Bringing the best of the Philippines to the rest of the World.

DISCUSSION: The educational fieldtrip to the ARMCOR armoury purposely designed to

equip military commanders particularly CGSC students with an idea of logistical framework to help them decide firearms and ammunitions issues, make logistical decisions, behave in an logistical manner, and influence others to do the same once they return to unit after graduation from CGSC.

CONCLUSION:

As a student of the CGSC Class 57, I find the educational fieldtrip very relevant, important and exceeded my expectations. As a commander and as soldier, I really learned a lot. Foremost that struck me was the topic responding to moral temptations which can be done by doing homework, gathering data first; talking it over with friends, family members, people in similar positions in other organizations, asking questions instead of giving answers; re-framing of the issues; referring to organizational commitments and values; understanding audiences, their needs, fears and motivations; and moving towards large change by small, incremental steps. This, I believe, will help me in making decisions in the exercise of my functions especially in dealing with dilemmas.

@@@In 1905, two Englishmen named Roy Squires and William Bingham put up a photo print shop and merchandising firm in the Philippines. The company established was called Squires, Bingham & Co.

Squires and Bingham eventually expanded their business to general trading; importing and retailing motorcycles and sporting goods - including firearms and ammunition. By the 1930's, Squires Bingham Co. had become popularly associated with sporting guns. It was at this point in time that Arthur D. Hileman, an ex-US Army Hospital Corpsman, purchased the store from its original owners. In 1941, the store - referred to as the "Sportsmen's Headquarters" - found a new owner in Celso S. Tuason. Unfortunately, just four months after he purchased the store, World War II broke out and Japan invaded the Philippines! Naturally, the invaders first order of business, much to dismay of Don Celso, was to confiscate all the firearms in his store. To survive, Squires Bingham Company had to rely on its clothing and haberdashery during those dark years. After the war, due to foreign exchange controls, Don Celso Tuason decided to venture into manufacturing. He focused on the most popular and profitable item in the store - firearms and ammunition. Like most countries after World War II, it was a time of rebuilding. Thus, in 1952, the President of the Philippines granted the Tuason family permission to manufacture firearms and ammunition locally as it was in line with his governments thrust towards industrialization. This led to the birth of Squires Bingham Manufacturing. Inc. In the mid-1960's, Don Celson Tuason decided that it was time to turn over the management of the Company to his three sons - Bolo, Butch and Conkoy. In 1980, Squires Bingham Co., Inc. became the holding company of the Celso S. Tuason family and their varied business interests. Don Celso's eldest son, Demetrio "Bolo" Tuason, was chosen to be the Chairman and President of the manufacturing company for firearms and ammunition. Thus, Arms Corporation of the Philippines (Armscor) was born.
