Live Fire Ammo Plan

Remember the idea is to get the most value out of every round. If possible go with a buddy and coach each other.

If firing with a buddy/coach, fire on a command. This will force you to concentrate on what you are doing and will remove the temptation to burn through your ammunition.

If you are firing alone, take your time. Set out a series of firing tables and stay with it. Practice Firing Discipline!
