Q&A with Amanda Smith, Training Coordinator / Business Manager

Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?
Being able to deliver skill-building courses for students ranging from novice to advanced, while developing the defensive skill sets for effective performance and survival in consideration of present armed conflict reality.

Do you or your staff have any special certifications or degrees?
Each of our instructors have real-world experience in either law enforcement and/or the military, which provides our students with a practical approach that is built upon reality-based, successfully proven fundamentals. Our instructors are not just simply “qualified” through state certifications to teach, but rather competent in their ability to effectively instruct given their wide training backgrounds and extensive career experience.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Guns and Leather Shooting Academy is a training company with an education program focused on survival and defense in several key areas. Those key areas are in developing skills in firearms training, medical triage and advanced trauma care, force-on-force, security operations, and castastropic event survival. Our training curriculum is for those serving in the military, law enforcement, as well as the private sector professional and armed citizens in protection of self and family preservation.

The rustle of feet swiftly move over grass as quick successions of pops echo off the sides of gutted vans and cars. Over the splatter of shots fired, orders are yelled out as teams communicate strategy. These sounds are music to the ears of all players that patrol the hallowed grounds of Nashville Paintball. The five fields present visitors with obstacles such as inflatable Xs, large industrial piping, and old cars targeted by paintballs of games past. While Nashville Paintball's fields received an expert's touch when designed, they cater to players of all levels, even offering games arranged specifically for beginners. Keeping the sport even more accessible, they rent paintball markers and gear and don't check for abstract art degrees at the door.

Upon walking into Beauty Escentuals, clients find themselves surrounded by more than 20 different haircare brands—from Paul Mitchell to Pureology to Moroccanoil. The same products that neatly line the retail shelves also star in salon services, where stylists craft chic dos or use accent foils to highlight cheekbones and pupil-less eyes. But hair isn't the only focus at the salon. Clients are also pampered with waxing and threading services as well as presented with a collection of OPI polishes, handbags, and BaByliss styling tools.

The friendly staff at Eastside is knowledgeable and passionate about the ways of the velocipede, yet also talented at making customers feel welcome and unstupid. After performing a safety check, Eastside's crew will inspect and tighten all the bolts of your bike, as well as degrease and re-lubricate its drive train. They'll also adjust the headset, bottom bracket, brakes, hubs, and derailleur before cleaning the frame and checking it for instability and surprise pipe bombs. Finally, Eastside will inflate tires to their proper PSI to ensure a smooth and worry-free ride over city streets, rural slopes, and vast plains of banana peels. Call ahead to schedule your appointment.

Designed by American Society of Golf Course Architects member Benjamin J. Wihry, Nashboro Golf Club's 36-year-old public course challenges golfers of all skill levels with more than 6,800 yards of club-carving grassy slopes. The par-72 arrangement tests swingers' mental and physical aptitude with tree-lined bermuda fairways, hazardous water- and sand-filled traps, and ball-snatching falcons. After teeing off from a scenic tee box and nudging dimpled spheres closer to the pin, links lovers can steer their steadfast carts toward the course’s bentgrass greens, whose cockeyed roots eternally point towards the birthplace of Jack Nicklaus.

Shoes are included, and all lanes feature automatic scoring, so contestants won’t have to waste precious time mastering the rules of the 10 frames. On Saturdays, bowlers get in touch with bowling’s dark side with ritualistic glowing lights and a pounding sound system during cosmic bowling.
