Rifle Range -  2004
Photos by Lieutenant Heller

Calgary Highlanders are expected to qualify with the C7 service rifle every year; marksmen are rewarded with the traditional crossed rifle badge, worn on the dress uniform.

As the final exercise of the year was a live fire exercise, musketry was an essential component, for both ensuring a successful attack and also for safety considerations.

In order to conduct the annual Personal Weapons Test (PWT) to the standard expected of an infantryman, several relays are fired from ranges of 100 to 500 metres, including run-downs of 100 metres before firing, firing from various positions (prone, kneeling, sitting and standing), and fire in both semi-automatic and automatic mode.
