Red Bulls: Weapons qualifying - beyond the basics

Email

CAMP BUEHRING, Kuwait - Weapons qualification ranges for most soldiers are pretty basic. Using their M4 or M16 assault rifles, they have 40 rounds to hit 40 targets 50 to 300 meters out on fairly level ground. 

That training does a good job of determining who understands the basics of rifle marksmanship, but infantry soldiers also need the ability to engage targets beyond 300 meters on uneven terrain.
