Nolan Dominick

Nolan was born and raised in Southern Illinois and has always loved getting his haircut in a traditional barbershop. He knew from a young age that was something he wanted to pursue so he attended barber school at Rend Lake College. Nolan saw the lack of barbers in his area and wanted to bring classic haircuts back to Southern Illinois. Outside of work Nolan enjoys playing golf and lifting weights.  We are excited to have Nolan on our team!

Ray Minor

Ray was born and raised in Southern Illinois and is a retired M/Sgt. with the Illinois State Police.  Since Ray's retirement he felt the need to continue to serve. Growing up Ray remembers hanging out in his grandfather's barbershop in Benton, IL. Through the years, Ray has seen the decline in Barber Shops and desires to bring back that old school barbershop feel that he remembers.   Ray feels men need a place to go, between work and home to be a guy that is not a bar.  Ray hopes the Armed Barber Shop will provide that place.

The Armed Barbers

Welcome to the Armed Barbers' shop. 
A man’s barbershop located in the main facility on the grounds of the Extreme Exigency Shooting Park.  Where we took two things men love and put them together. 

Shooting and classic men's haircuts.  A place to shoot and a place to enjoy old school classic haircuts, beard trims, and hot towel straight blade razor shaves. 

The male baby boomer is now in his 50s and 60s, craves a return to the shops he knew while growing up.  He does not want to be surrounded by the smell of acrylics or chemicals. He wants to feel comfortable and secure in a male domain when he receives a haircut, beard trim or face shave.  Younger men are wearing shorter traditional old school hair styles such as pompadours, fades, and military cuts.  These styles required the expertise of a barber.   

Our barbershop provides more than just barber services, our shop offers old school long lost true service, expertise, tools, guidance, and a place to gather, relax, enjoy comradeship,  a place to feel welcome.
