Abstract:

This study determined the effects of modifications in Quick Kill rifle training on the proficiency of trainees in Basic Combat Training in using Quick Kill techniques. It was concluded that a use of the temporary training rib on the rifle in Transition Firing produces superior results, b no significant loss in Quick Kill proficiency should result from reducing range and number of targets from three targets at 15, 30 and 50 meters to two targets at 20 and 50 meters, retaining the training rib, c reducing total number of rounds fired from 60 to 30 without a reduction in targets would result in reduced proficiency, and d three hours of Air Rifle practical exercises produce results superior to one and one-half hours of these exercises.
