40 out of 40 that’s the goal every cadet
dreams of but in reality only the best few typically ever shoot perfect every
regiment. For many cadets here this is their first time ever qualifying and in
a lot of cases ever touching a rifle before.
25 out of 40 so could done a little better but I qualified, the qualification
is 23 I got 18 out of 30 so I’ll be going again and hopefully I’ll be able
to get a higher score. Each cadet is given 40 rounds, 20 and one magazine for
shooting a prone supported, ten and another four prone unsupported, as well
as ten in a final mag for the hardest shooting position…. kneeling. Rifle
qualification is a must pass event in order to graduate advanced camp. That
being said each cadet walk down to the range today with their own inner
motivation. To my family, I’m just going to make sure I graduate, and make sure don’t embarrass myself. I feel confident in my abilities and I’m sure my platoon is feeling the same everyone’s really motivated as well because basic rifle
marksmanship is one of the funner drills that we get to do here at Advance camp.
I’m just wanting to graduate be a first time go I’m an end of camp commissioned so
my commission day is August 2nd I want to make sure I give everything 100% so that I can graduate and move forward. Hitting 23 to the 40 pop up
targets is passing and will qualify you as marksman hit 30 targets you’ll be
qualified sharpshooter, and if you hit 36 out of 40 targets you’ll be getting the
bragging rights of qualifying as an expert. With cadet summer training public
affairs, I’m Steven Eschbach.
