Small Arms: Firing Range NSNs

BLUF: Here are some NSNs you’ll need when you operate the next range.

This article initially appeared in PS 762 (May 16).

It can be frustrating to arrive at the firing range only to realize you’re missing important items like targets. A few years back, Master Sergeant Ernie Hammons (Ret) from Camp Beauregard in Pineville, LA, shared this list of NSNs for everything you need at the range.
Leaders/OICs, keep a copy of this list. You’ll need it eventually, gar-on-teed (as they say in Louisiana)!
