The Arms Historic Society of Finland. Suomen Asehistoriallinen Seura r.y. (SAHS)

The aim of SAHS is to act as a collective bond between gun collectors, to promote historical knowledge and research of guns and associated artifacts, and to preserve the cultural values involved. A further aim is to keep the aforementioned material in original condition.

To promote its values SAHS organizes meetings, displays, conferences, trips, and gives reports. SAHS conducts research on guns and related material, organizes practice or show shootings, and shooting competitions with old or black powder guns.

SAHS publishes relevant articles mainly through ASE-lehti, a Finnish language gun magazine.

SAHS represents Finland on a European level as a member of FESAC (Foundation for the European Societies of Arms Collectors).
