Practice record fire is a training exercise designed to progressively develop and refine the soldiers combat firing skills. During this exercise, the soldier is exposed to a more difficult course of fire with increased time stress to include single and multiple target engagements at six distances ranging from 50 to 300 meters. This exercise also provides the opportunity to practice and demonstrate skills learned during target detection. To perform well, a soldier must integrate all the tasks learned from previous training. When firing exercises are properly organized, conducted, and critiqued, the soldier gains knowledge and confidence in his firing performance. Through close observation, coaching, and critiquing, instructors/trainers can base remedial training on specific needs. (See Appendix G.)
