Santa Barbara Historical Arms Association (SBHAA)
Founded in 1957

Meetings are held on the first Monday of the month (except in September), at the Lions' Club in Carpinteria, CA, at 7:30 P.M. Members are encouraged to bring guests.

The displays generally follow a pre-announced theme: in recent months, members' displays have centered on military accoutrements and memorabilia of all things firearms. It is difficult to attend one of our meetings and not come away with a better understanding of our great Nation's past and its promises for the future.



Theme for July Displays
Evolution of an Arm

Theme for August Displays
Compare one one maker to another

Theme for September Displays
Pistol & Rifle with the same cartridge
