1st of October


The shooting range had been empty almost the entire morning. That is, until a Captain McCauley signed in to use it. The Captain was carrying a fully-loaded M4A1 Close Quarters Battle Rifle. The standard-issue to the members of the United States Marine Corps Force Reconnaissance.

McCauley walked up to the first booth. Took a clean target from the pile and hung it on the clips. Then he pushed the button and with a slight shock the target raced to the back. Then he raised the weapon. He made sure the butt was firmly in the pocket of his shoulder, and took aim. Then, with his right thumb he took the safety off of his rifle, and set it to semi-automatic firing.

He knew, from experience, that he couldn't prepare as well as he did now in combat. The moment he went in combat in the past, a part of him just went full automatic. He didn't think about how he was handling his rifle. Or if he was aiming correctly. No, he thought about how he'd get his guys out alive.

The Captain popped off a few round. Bang. Bang. Bang. Bang, bang. He felt the shock, and moments after firing he heard the empty casings hit the concrete floor. He could see he had hit all of his shots. All of them in the centre-mass of the target.

The lights flickered for a few seconds. The Captain didn't think too much of it. The lights probably were approaching the end of their lifespan, and as such they'd probably be replaced soon. For now, they seemed to be working just fine, though.
