My son graduated Marine Boot last November. When they had their rifle time at Pendleton, they spent a week dry firing from various positions long before they ever put a round through the rifle. They fired a lot more than 400 rounds. And that was just in boot camp. He just finished Marine Combat Training in January and fired a ton of rounds through other weapons as well.
Say what you want, but a Marine is a rifleman first and they shoot alot. I don't know how often he must qualify with the weapon now that boot and MCT is over.
We have a million reasons for failure, but not one excuse...
Die Donks, DIE!!
