Owner: Dennis L Baker
I have enjoyed outdoor sports all my life. I was blessed to be born to a family with a long tradition of hunting and fishing. I was born in Ohio where my family has lived for over 100 years.
I graduated from Otterbein College in 1975. After college I managed several small businesses in the packaging industry. In 1983 my career took me and my family to Dallas Texas. I owned a business there called Hi Tech Foam Products that manufactured packing products.
I loved Texas and hunted and fished there every minute my work and wife would allow. During this time I also owned a company called Den’s Bait Shop and sold and restored antique fishing tackle.
I have collected firearms and airguns all of my life. I have been lucky to able to combine my love of history with a love of the outdoors by studying the vintage firearms, airguns and fishing tackle.
I am a member of the NRA, National Fishing Tackle Collectors Association and a former Eagle Scout, Boy Scouts of America.
Our home and business is located on the Indians Summer Conservation Club, a former Issac Walton League wildlife refuge that includes 50 wooded acres, a 15 acre lake, 2 acre pond and a 1800’s era log cabin. When I was a youngster, I spent countless hours trapping, hunting and fishing on this beautiful area. Many cold November mornings I rose before dawn, walked a mile or so on the railroad tracks, ran a trap line around the lake and returned home in time to get ready for school. When I retired and moved back to Ohio in 1999 we were delighted to find that the property was for sale. I jumped on it like bird on a bug.
The Indian Summer Conservation Club, the woods, lake and cabin are another story. I will post more details and pictures on the blog page of this website as I get the hang of this blogging process.
Around 2003 I began to get more serious about collecting and repairing airguns and began to attend some of the airgun shows. I was delighted to find how receptive and friendly many of the collectors and those in the airgun business were to a relative newcomer. Ron Sauls, Jim Coplen, Bucky Scalzo, John Growenwald, Larry Lanich, Dennis Quackenbush, Tom Gaylord and many others were helpful and encouraging. After many years in the cut throat packaging industry, this was a breath of fresh air.
During this time economics ( and to finance my dream of owning the Indian Summer Conservation Club) forced me to grace my retirement by taking a job with Honda Manufacturing. I worked in the Internal Quality Group for about 10 years.
I started Airgun repair in 2005 taking in airguns for some of the folks I had met at the airgun shows. Quickly the number of repairs and my job with Honda became an overwhelming rat race.
In 2012 I retired (again) and dedicated all of time to Airgun Repair. We have since become Baker Airguns LLC.
General Manager: Mike Gann
Hailing from Arizona, Mike joined Baker Airguns in 2020. With a background in business, he oversees the day to day operations of Baker Airguns. Mike is quickly becoming a good shooter and did very well in his first season of field target and benchrest competition. Expect to hear more from him on the competition scene in the future.
Lead Airgunsmith/ Service Manager: Billy “Putt” Rodenberger
Putt grew up in southern Ohio the son of a former Marine. In his career in the military he developed his skills as a gunsmith and passed this knowledge onto Putt. He came to Baker Airguns in 2008 and has become our go to guy for problem guns. He has repaired recoilless guns such as the Diana Model 6, FWB springers, Crosman Match rifles, and a myriad of other difficult airguns. He has also restored many old Daisy Double Barrels. You’d be hard pressed to find another airgunsmith with his level of knowledge and skill.
