The 80 leathernecks, most from 2nd Battalion, 25th Marines, went through a combat marksmanship course of fire before about 200 Mozambican soldiers took their turn, firing a 10-round string of fire from 75-150 meters away from their targets while Marines stood by offering advice. Earlier the Marines led he Mozambican soldiers through a class on Marine Corps small arms weaponry and weapons handling procedures.
