Basic Rifle Marksmanship

12Aug09

Cadets take what they learn in the classroom and apply it to the gun range. For BRM 4&5, the cadets must learn how to group and zero before moving on to BRM 11&12. Here, cadets must hit a number of targets in order to qualify.

This was a little frustrating to shoot because it was hard to get faces. Why? Because I couldn’t stand in front of them while they were shooting (obviously), and from the side, it was either covered up by the M-16 or by their battle buddy who was supposed to be watching their breathing and trigger squeeze.

However, one thing that I will always remember is that MSG Painter let me shoot one of the M-16s, and I actually did pretty well grouping. I wanted to shoot the moving targets as well, but they ran out of ammo 😦
