ORDNANCE 81 GUNNERY
To be an effective lighting unit, a warship must be
capable of inflicting maximum damage upon the
enemy, to survive, it must be able to defend itself
against hostile attack. In Ordnance Training, the
recruit learns some of the duties performed on board
ship by "The Man Behind the Gun."
Ordnance and Gunnery training begins with in-
struction in the use of small arms. At the snapping-
in range, under the guidance of experienced rifle
range coaches, the recruit learns how to load and
sight a rifle, how to adjust the sling, and how to fire
the weapon from the several positions. In the small
bore gallery he has a chance to test his marksman-
ship using a .22 caliber rifle. Later he will spend a
day on the outdoor rifle range firing the Garand M-l
riHe 'cfor record." He will also be instructed in the
use of thc service pistol and Carbine and will witness
firings of the Browning automatic rifle and the
Thompson sub-machine gun. Throughout, the safe
use of weapons is stressed in instruction and rigidly
enforced on the firing line.
In advanced training the recruit receives an intro-
duction to the larger weapons he will see on board
ship and learns some of the principles of their opera-
tion. Although he will not witness the actual firing
of these shipboard weapons until he goes to sea, he
receives practical experience in sighting and loading
a five-inch and a LLOMM gun, using dummy ammu-
nition. He is shown the various types of ammunition
he will encounter and handle on board ship, and
learns the necessity for strictly observing the safety
precautions which are necessary for his own safety
and that of his shipmates. ,. . I
