Q&A with Roger Carlson, Instructor

What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?

Our personalized interactive instruction for safe, confident, and effective gun management while carrying concealed or in home protection. The instructors recognize the students' limits and adjust the type of firearm to their capabilities, strengths, and lifestyles. We work with seniors, women, businesses, groups and clubs and offer courses to fit their needs.

Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?

The surprised look that people have when they can hit a moving target every time within a single class training period. We really love seeing people gain the confidence they need to safely manage their firearm.

What aspect of your job, or the services you offer, most often surprises people?

The ease of the course and our ability to adjust it to the student's needs whether for home, office, or classroom settings. We offer our clients firearms safety drills that can be practiced in the privacy of their own homes.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

We teach people how to ?Run the Gun? in a safe, confident and effective way. This gives them the knowledge to get fitted to the firearm that will be the best personal choice for them.

The Sylvester family had bartending in its blood. Whether it was Uncle Mickey holding court with 40 years' worth of regulars or Tony Sr. mixing one of his signature Skip and Go Nakeds, they exemplified the easy grace and no-nonsense craftsmanship found in a true barman's barman. That dedication to well-poured drinks carried over to Tony Jr., who has spent the last 35 years training mixologists nationwide through the curriculum of his ABC Bartending Schools. Taught behind fully functional bars, his courses educate students in topics ranging from drink recipes and equipment setup to flair moves and alcohol awareness. His schools also emphasize employment; after graduation, students can take advantage of a nationwide job placement service to land gigs in Miami nightclubs, Las Vegas casinos, or the bar cars of Chicago's El trains.

From their hanger at Craig Airport, Sterling Flight Training's certified flight instructors instill wingless humans with the power of flight with safe, exhilarating helicopter flight instruction. Lessons commence with a cranium-stuffing hour of Special Federal Aviation Regulation (SFAR) ground training , as students learn sky-survival tips including safety procedures, equipment instruction, and which clouds are safe to eat (a $100 value). Aspiring pilots then join their seasoned instructors in the cockpit of a Robinson R-44, a single-engine chopper with two-bladed main and tail rotors, for a 30-minute introductory flight into the wild blue (a $470 value).
