I also did the practical weapons qualification course with the Mossberg 500 and Remington 700 I think it was. Was a timed course 3 minutes running from station to station. About the same distances. Included shooting from the hip and combat dry reloading. As I recall 00 Buck, which is what we fired had 11 pellets in it, and you fired 2 at each target and had to have 9 holes in each to pass, plus finish on time. Was fun, I like blowing up other people's money.
In 69 we went to Marine shooting range and shot m-1's and never saw a Pistol until I got in Crypto then we got an Axe and a 1911 that had not been shot in years but got cleaned every now and then...Im not even sure we had any ammo. Prob the Barney allotment of 1.
