Lexington Guns and Shooting Range - Always on Target
One area businessman has turned a lifelong passion into a business he’s truly fanatical about.
Mike Bader grew up hunting with his father and has been a hunting and gun enthusiast ever since. He spent three years in the military achieving expert marksman before working for 33 years as a registered nurse.
After retiring, Bader decided to embark on his latest adventure – owning a gun store and shooting range. He opened Lexington Gun and Shooting Range in early 2015. The business is located at 472 Highway 378 in Lexington and employs seven people.
Bader said Lexington is a “great place to do business and raise a family. Our family has lived in Lexington County for 42 years.”
“I pride myself on customer service and up to date knowledge about the gun products we sell.” said Bader, a lifetime member of NRA. “This is a safe, clean and well-run range.”
