4. Firing ranges are found in open terrain and near home stations. Ranges in open
terrain usually have the vegetation removed and a clear field of fire; furthermore, there is a
control tower. They are easily recognized. On the other hand, ranges near home stations
are usually scaled ranges to reduce the rising cost of ammunition, fuel, and spare parts.
The following examples are typical ranges.
a. The standard rifle marksmanship field firing range consists of approximately 35
firing lanes, each lane has a fighting position (foxhole), stump, and sandbags. There are
three rows or banks of targets, one bank is located at a range of 75 m, the second at 175
m, and the third at 300 m Figure 2-21).
