Range Organization

The alternate course can be conducted on any 25-meter, 1,000-inch, or 15-meter (50-foot) indoor range where service ammunition can be fired. Becuase range facilities differ, so will range equipment for each unit conducting training. Target frames can be built locally. Target tackers or paste can be used to affix target sheets to target frames. Target sheets can be repaired with pasters or changed after each soldier completes each table. (Local supplies dictate target repair and replacement procedures.)

The chief range officer ensures the safety of all personnel and the proper operation of his range. His duties include organizing personnel into firing orders, assigning numbers, managing ammunition, and assigning target details. He can assign NCOs to perform all these duties.

The tower operator issues fire commands, or the chief range officer performs this duty.
