Diagnosis Of Firing Problems

Diagnosis of firing problems is the main purpose of the Weaponeer. The following seven-step program is recommended as a guide. Depending on the extent of the firer's problems and time constraints, the number of shots may be increased.

STEP 1. Tell the soldier to assume a good firing position, to aim at a target, and to hold steady (supported and prone unsupported positions).

STEP 2. Visually check the firer's firing position and correct any gross errors. STEP 3. Observe the video screen. If there is no aiming dot on the video screen or if the aiming dot is far from target center, teach sight picture to the firer. If excessive movement is shown by the light dot, check and correct the techniques of the steady position and natural point of aim.
