This mini-series aims to acquaint readers more closely with a specific selected military expertise or profession within the Army of the Czech Republic. It should present the content of the activities of individual soldiers performing the profession in a comprehensible form. We would like to thank the Army of the Czech Republic or Ministry of Defence that they allowed us to shoot the series and we believe that our readers will learn a little bit more about some ACR professions.
Shooting training has a unique and irreplaceable role in the training of members of the Czech Army. Together with tactical training, it is one of the most important.
Every soldier who goes on duty must have been shot and handled with a weapon. Shooting is valid for three months, but handling only until the end of the following month after execution.
It is necessary to continuously maintain basic shooting skills, which everyone forgets very quickly and which the soldier needs for his job. Most of the training focuses mainly on safe handling and basic shooting habits.
Every commander who deploys his soldier in action is responsible for his readiness. He therefore guarantees that every soldier has met these basic requirements for the performance of service.
