The owners of Dead Center Indoor Gun Range founded their business to give shooters of all ability levels a place to feel safe while improving their marksmanship. To do so, they built a 25-yard, eight-lane indoor range—designed to handle both handgun and rifle fire—with a ventilation system that quickly purifies the air, as well as surveillance cameras that lovingly watch over shooters. To further demonstrate their commitment to safety, range chiefs make sure guests comply with NRA gun safety rules. Beyond supervising open shooting sessions, they also teach both armed and unarmed defense in beginner through advanced classes, such as Don't Be a Victim and the NRA FIRST Steps Pistol Orientation. Dead Center's staff also mans a pro shop and offers four levels of membership with privileges such as waived fees for firearm rentals.
For two days, racers and fans convene at Road Atlanta's 750-acre complex for Drift Atlanta IX, a dazzling showcase of high-skill Formula Drift racing. During the main event, drivers navigate a winding course, sliding their cars sideways while quickly changing direction to handle the sudden turns. A panel judges determines the winners based on execution and style, rather than typical racing's speed and willingness to brake for old ladies crossing the track. On Friday, competitors face off in qualifying matches to determine the 16-car field for Saturday's main showdown. Meanwhile, a lineup of non-feature events keep adrenaline levels from depleting to the lethally low "extreme."

A fourth-generation artist, Rose Handy has always made time for creating. After a rollercoaster ride of life changes and moves, Rose and her potter husband Paul opened their own gallery and class space. Joined by a staff of illustrators, quilters, watercolorists, and other artisans, the owners encourage Wild Child students to find their own artistic voices, whether they're hand-building a ceramic bowl, painting a family portrait, or fusing glass pieces together to make a new glass family. The search for new avenues of creativity also extends to the studio's class offerings; beginning in January 2013, aspiring artisans can learn the intricacies of handbuilding and wheel-based pottery techniques as part of the shop's newest curriculum.
