Among more than a dozen bullet points on his resume, Captain Bobby Luna of Luna & Associates holds certifications as an NRA-licensed firearm instructor and a DPS-certified concealed-handgun instructor. The US Army veteran and 30-year law-enforcement member trains his students to safely operate handguns and obtain their concealed-handgun licenses.

The staff at Play Extreme Sports builds on classic combat games such as laser tag and paintball with modern twists that provide fun and active entertainment for kids and adults. An airsoft field facilitates games similar to paintball that substitute paint pellets for BBs, and food-grade cornstarch is the weapon of choice in color throws. Players aim at the undead during seasonal zombie paintball hunts, and at-home parties get a boost of mess-free fun with a mobile paintball booth.

Standup paddleboards afford views unmatched by their made-for-sitting brethren, the kayak and canoe. But that’s only part of the reason Padre Paddle touts standup paddleboarding (SUP) lessons and rentals as its sole offering. SUP also works the core muscles and can be picked up by athletes of all ages and skill levels. To keep riders from sliding off into the open arms of an unwanted mermaid admirer the boards used at Padre Paddle are topped with a soft grip inspired by yoga mats. This surface is also handy for SUP yoga classes, which welcome students to hold poses atop the water about an hour before sunset.
