Heavy Weapons Shoot

Location: USA

Monday was our "heavy weapons" shoot. We qualified on pistols and rifles the week before, these were the armys "big guns" that they let us shoot....

This is the actual shooting range, this is the M240 machine gun...

MK19 Grenade Launcher. It is a weapon that "shoots" grenades...

Shooting a machine gun from the "prone" position...i.e. on your belly!

Shooting the 50 caliber machine gun...a very distinct sound, shoots really big bullets a long way..

An instructor follows alongside during your reflexive shooting just in case...

This was the reflexive fire range, we actually ran across the field stopping and shooting at targets

A closer photo of the 50 caliber machine gun shoot!

All of us practicing our "prone" shooting positions in the dirt!

Again the Drill Sgts are nearby to monitor your shooting...

Actual shooting of the grenade launcher

These are the old tanks and "targets" we used to shoot at with the heavy weapons.

This is the pistol range we shot at the week before.. not nearly as impressive
