June 29, 2018

BARBOURSVILLE — Bare Arms, a gun store, range and training facility, celebrated the opening of its second location, this one in Huntington, on Saturday, June 23.

“After the successful opening of the original Bare Arms located in Ashland, Kentucky, in 2016 the owner, Billy Bare, sought to expand his business after countless requests and support from his patrons in the Huntington area,” Josh Willis, manager at the Huntington Bare Arms, said. “Along with the many locals in attendance were Evan Jenkins, congressman and Bob Bailey Cabell County commissioner, who pushed for its construction.”

Willis said the new Bare Arms offers a showroom, climate-controlled firing range and a restaurant, Bombshells Burgers & BBQ.

“Bombshells Burgers & BBQ is a World War II-themed diner offering local BBQ, decorated with pictures from the era, including photos of local men and women that served during the war,” Willis said.

Willis added that the Huntington Bare Arms will offer the same services as the Ashland facility does.

“Safety is paramount at Bare Arms,” said owner Billy Bare. “We pride ourselves in having a welcoming atmosphere and a safe place for shooters of all ages and experience levels.”

Bare Arms-Ashland is located at 3502 Winchester Ave.

Bare Arms-Huntington is located right off exit 8 on I-64 at 2134 5th Street Road.
