ABOUT THE PEOPLE
Base Outfitters owners consist of two couples. The parents are Micah and Lisa Uptegrove, along with their son and his wife, Micah Tyler and Sarah. Micah Sr holds a master’s degree in Administration and has taught High School and coached sports for many years. He has also owned and managed his construction company for the past 32 years. Lisa is a mom of 5 adult children and works from home running the construction company. Micah and Lisa have had rental property for about 12 years. They have been hands-on managers and have recently added an apartment complex with Tyler and Sarah. Micah Tyler holds a degree in biomedical engineering from the University of Missouri and worked as a patent attorney in St. Louis for a few years before moving back to mid-Missouri to manage the family businesses. His wife Sarah has an agriculture degree from the University of Missouri and now stays home raising their 4 children and helping with the businesses when she can. With this four-person team, they have managed to bring a 30-year-old apartment complex back to the high standard they expect out of all their business ventures. By bringing on an amazing team, they have established a business that no longer requires their full attention. Over the past two years, they have been developing the design of a gun store and range to be located on the same land as the majority of the rental property. They have added range manager and longtime friend, Army veteran John Cannon, to this team for this new venture. Since his retirement as a military police officer, he has worked as a high school safety resource officer and part-time as a local police officer. John is the Range Manager and chief Range Safety Officer. While in the military, one of his jobs was to manage one of the shooting ranges for the Army. Base Outfitters feels very fortunate to have John as our right-hand man when it comes to range management. You can read his full bio here
. In addition to the gun store, Micah and Lisa’s daughters created a section for women’s boutique
items where they all play a part in making that successful, so this is truly a family business. Even the kids/grandkids get involved! We appreciate you supporting our small business and can’t wait to meet you in the store!
