Fighting for Arms Rights and Preserving history

The Arms Historical Society of Finland, SAHS, was founded 1965 to unite nationwide collectors.


Today the society has more than 310 members.

SAHS is working for close co-operation and development both in internal and international legislation.

We are the official representative of Finland in FESAC, European collectors organisation.

Our representative in Malta conference

12.01.2017

(Abbrevation from https://firearms-united.com/fi/2017/01/09/malta-conference/)

The Conference organized by FESAC, AACTS, AMACS and Firearms United in Malta has attracted media attention – in addition to hall full of firearms enthusiasts and foreign guests from many organizations in Europe! The conference was held 7th January 2017 in Malta.

SAHS vice president Juhani Jokinen, our representative, 2nd row in the middle.

Nothing in the directive is yet settled, and even the trilogue is still formally ongoing before the parliament approves the current ”compromise”. Malta is in key position, because they are taking over EU presidency for the next six months and one of the more challenging areas is the new firearms directive proposal, so the conference was an excellent event, where the message from the shooters was sent to the authorities – loud and clear.
