Shots ring out over Eldorado Valley, filling the air with the distinctive crack of rifle fire. Within the foothills of the McCullough Mountains, visitors of all abilities refine their aim under the watchful eyes of the staff at Pro Gun Club. Spanning 160 acres of rolling terrain, the shooting grounds cover areas for firearms practice, shotgun sports, and even the chance to blow up a vehicle. There’s also a dedicated space for archery and opportunities for airsoft games. Between shooting sessions on the field, visitors can head to the clubhouse, which brims with amenities such as a fully stocked bar and flatscreen televisions.
On the weekend of November 14–16, 2014, gather at the Surefire Institute Firearms Fair for a variety of activities and events. Hop into an Airworks helicopter for a quick ride, or just watch as the choppers hoist members of the US Special Operations Command and the British SAS demonstrate a parachute jump. Meanwhile, vendors—including Glock and New Frontier Armory—and food trucks showcase their wares.
Across the grounds, fair-goers can watch some of the world's best sharpshooters in action. At the Surefire World Championships three-gun and multi-gun competitions take place in 16 stages, including bay stages, night stages, and outlaw field courses. But the activity isn't just for the pros. Live-fire ranges provide the chance to fire semi-automatic and automatic weapons, and Shoot the Bot uses robotic targets that charge at the player.
By nature of their profession, doctors and nurses have unpredictable schedules. It's tough to squeeze in a certification or recertification class between patients, research, and charming their stethoscope with a pungi's hypnotic tones. National Health Care Provider Solutions has found a workaround, however, in the form of online courses that are all designed by board-certified physicians to abide by AHA standards.
Each course is accessible any time, from any device with Internet access. Video tutorials and study guides familiarize students with their chosen subject, whether it's basic life support, advanced cardiac life support, pediatric advanced life support, or CPR, AED, and first aid. After passing the exam at the end of the course, students receive a digital certificate and an internationally accepted certification card in the mail.
NHCPS has pledged to donate all proceeds gained through the certification and recertification programs towards furthering the efforts of the Disque Foundation. The mission of the Disque Foundation is to advance and provide health care education to underserved areas, both domestic and abroad.
CityGolf's managing owner and head golf professional, Gary Parker, brings a Class A PGA certification and more than two decades of teaching experience to CityGolf, earning him Boston magazine's Best Golf Pro in 2007. Gary and his team of PGA-certified aces preside over year-round golfing activities inside CityGolf Boston's studios and their modern golf-training facilities, including a brand new downtown Boston location. Pros tailor instruction to individuals during lessons to help straighten out swings with the assistance of Dartfish video swing analysis, which reveals every ill-timed motion, errant clubface position, and argyle-clad poltergeist affecting each shot. A virtual-reality simulator recreates the environments of more than 30 legendary courses, and a 280-square-foot putting green challengers players' ability to read breaking greens.

In the age of Internet memes, Chuck Norris has been credited with causing climate change, time travelling, and combining the world's martial arts into a single super style. Only one of these is true. Based on his long-standing love for and study of the fighting arts, Mr. Norris mixed, blended, and puréed all his knowledge into the style known as Chun Kuk Do, Korean for "way of many lands."
Tara Cox and Kenny Gallacher—instructors and co-owners of Cox & Gallacher Martial Arts—both bear black belts in the multinational form. They teach students self-defense techniques, grappling, and even weapon-based fighting styles drawn from such diverse forms as Korean tae kwon do and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. All of their combat and fitness training espouses the virtues of discipline, integrity, loyalty, and respect, the only four words in the song the Secret Service sings to presidents while they lull him to sleep.
