The standard record fire course was developed with the assumption that target systems would function. Therefore, a first objective is to ensure that all targets are functioning properly. When in doubt, a lane should be fired to ensure that a bullet strike will activate each target. Sometimes slapping a target with a cleaning rod can cause it to activate, but a bullet will not. When it is hot, the plastic targets may allow the fast moving 5.56-mm bullet to pass without causing sufficient vibration to activate the mechanism, resulting in a requirement to change targets more often, to use double targets, or to use different silhouettes for a positive indication of hits.
