Family Day, Part IV: M240B Machine Gun Range

Our final station for Family Day was the M240B machine gun range.  We were given a safety briefing and demonstration of the weapon, then proceeded with our one-on-one safety guide to the range.  Everyone was provided ear protection and we shot 100 rounds at the really small target in front of us. 

The Soldier that accompanied me to the range was a consummate professional and helped me get myself organized to shoot.  After a little advice on readjusting my aim, I was able to successfully hit the target!  I was thrilled and was happy to keep my target as we wrapped up our last station.  Hooah!

Love the dichotomy of the pink tutu and the automatic weapon!
