2-19. Range Firing Courses

Range firing is conducted after the firers have satisfactorily completed preparatory marksmanship training. The range firing courses are:

a. Instructional. Instructional firing is practice firing on a range, using the assistance of a coach.

(1) All personnel authorized or required to fire the pistol receive 12 hours of preliminary instruction that includes the following:

Disassembly and assembly.

Loading, firing, unloading, and immediate action.

Preparatory marksmanship.

Care and cleaning.

(2) The tables fired for instructional practice are prescribed in the combat pistol qualification course in Appendix A. During the instructional firing, the CPQC is fired with a coach or instructor.

b. Combat Pistol Qualification. The CPQC stresses the fundamentals of quick fire. It is the final test of a soldier’s proficiency and the basis for his marksmanship classification. After the soldier completes the instructional practice firing, he shoots the CPQC for record. Appendix A provides a detailed description of the CPQC tables, standards, and conduct of fire. TC 25-8 provides a picture of the course.

NOTE: The alternate pistol qualification course (APQC) can be used for sustainment/qualification if the CPQC is not available (see Appendix B).

c. Military Police Firearms Qualification. The military police firearms qualification course is a practical course of instruction for police firearms training (see FM 19-10).
