Question shooting range?

What's the shooting range qualification range like?

how much practice do you get before qualification?

Do they make you shot beyond 100m? what's the longest they will make you?

what if you fail?

Can you retake it?

if some1 is trying to become a sniper, he needs to qualify as an expert? and he doesn't can he retake it?

would i shoot the m16a2 or the m4?m16a2 is better for longer ranges, right?

Default Rifle Range

You have to get a 23 out of 40
The longest target is 300m
You use the M16A2
You can retake it if your DS is nice
If you fail you do it till you pass
Sniper would be and expert or Hawkeye 40/40
You usually get a few days of practice

Wrong. There are far more difficult requirements to be awarded the B4 (basic course) or W3 (SOTIC) identifiers.

Want to be a sniper? Have to attend and pass sniper school.

Well no **** Tacky, but it would be alot better if you got expert or 40/40 on the range. Damn all you do is look for people to try and prove wrong.

No, he is a member with expierience who wants to help. If some body gives the person asking the question a wrong fact, Tacky corrects it. He doesn't just go and say "NO", he explains what the correct info means so why don't you sit back down. You were wrong and he corrected you so deal with it.
