READY ON THE RIGHT? READY ON THE LEFT? READY ON THE FIRING LINE? WATCH YOUR TARGETS!

(Firers assume the appropriate firing position and commence firing when the targets are presented.)

When all the targets are withdrawn, the range officer checks for slow firers or malfunctions and then allows them to fire.

The pit NCOIC organizes, orients, and provides safety for the pit detail. The success of KD firing depends on efficient operation of the targets and the close coordination between the pit NCOIC and range officer. All operators must know the proper procedure for operating and marking the target.

Marking targets for zeroing and slow fire. Targets are marked quickly after each shot or group of shots without command. During slow fire, the firer has a time limit of one minute for each shot. Twenty seconds is considered the maximum time limit for marking. A marker (spotter) is placed in the hit regardless of its location on the target. Each time the target is marked, the marker is removed from the previous hit, and the hole is pasted. (Three-inch markers are used for 100, 200, and 300 meters; five-inch markers are used for 500 meters.)

Using disk markers. The target markers are painted black on one side and white on the opposite side. They may be procured in three dimensions: 11/2 inches (NSN 6920-00-789-0864), 3 inches (NSN 6920-00-713-8255), and 5 inches (NSN 6920-00-713-8254). The disk spindle may also be procured through supply channels (NSN 6920-00-713-8257).
