After the test we had real practice on the range. We practiced unloading guns and handing them over the fence to our partners, and then climbing over ourselves. We also practiced walk- ing along as if we were hunting. Finally, we practiced getting in and out of a car and boat with our guns. That afternoon we were given 10 shots and a .22 rifle to fire them with. The first five shots were fired in a prone position at 50 feet from the target, in which I did bet- ter than average.
