    Good luck, JoJo. Congrats on your decision! :wavey:


    edit: When you do weapons qual for m16, they will move you to progressively easier ranges if you don't qualify the first day. We had a lot more expert scores from the failure group than we had from the first-go qualifiers. If I had known this before I went, I might have pulled some of my shots that first day. :hsugh:

    Congrats and good luck. I'm an 11b but I'll be taking a quick 19d qual school in kosovo this spring.










    You got to qualify more than once at basic training?

    We went to the range many times. After the first qualification day, every time we went there were people that hadn't passed their qual yet. Those people got a lot of attention from the Drill Sgts, and their day always ended with another attempt at qualification.
