Marksmanship Skills Provide Mission Readiness and Mentorship

Recommended Posts

Hospital Corpsman 1st Class Axel Narvaez was awarded the U.S. Navy Pistol Excellence-In-Competition Badge (Bronze) after a match in Virginia Beach, Virginia, in which he scored a 90.87 percent. As a result, he took second place in the Carry Optics division, where shooters possess a pistol without major modifications and a slide mounted red dot sight.

A man steps up to the firing line, his vision downrange. “Shooter, load and make ready!” orders the range safety officer. A magazine is slotted into the well and the slide is racked as a round is put into the chamber before the pistol is holstered once more. The chatter of the onlookers dies down to eager silence.

“Shooter, are you ready?” A nod is their answer. “Shooter standby!”
