Field firing is part of the continued progression in the development of combat shooting skills. This begins the soldier's critical transition from unstressed firing at single, known-distance targets to targets at various ranges for short exposures. It also requires the soldier to practice and refine previously taught skills.
This chapter introduces the necessity and techniques for scanning the range for targets, estimating range, and firing quickly and accurately. (See Figure 6-1 for the current training program.)
