Unit Sustainment Training

A unit cannot sustain marksmanship proficiency based only on qualification preceded by preliminary training. Soldier skills and marksmanship fundamentals deteriorate within two months, and mechanical skills weaken even sooner. Dry-fire training can strengthen marksmanship skills and assess their deterioration.

Each newr soldier should be assigned a rifle and must perform shot grouping, zero firing, and diagnostic testing to assess training status. Many of the nonfiring tasks may be accomplished as opportunity training or concurrent training.
