    HAWTHORNE, Nev. – Members of the 152nd Security Forces Squadron (SFS) participated in a 3-day, small-arms, live-fire training exercise at the Hawthorne Army Depot here, June 8-10, 2021.

    The Airmen aimed to maintain and improve weapons proficiency with both the M-4 carbine and M9 handgun.

    Throughout all 3 days, the Airmen fired over 3,000 rounds of ammunition collectively.

    “Going out and shooting at the range is how you get better,” said Staff Sgt. John Brown, 152nd SFS Combat Arms Training and Maintenance (CATM) instructor. “Practice makes perfect.”

    The 152nd SFS CATM instructors lead several different shooting drills such as firing around and over barricades, shooting on the move, and rotating between their rifle and handgun.

    Instructors also took input from the other Airmen on what they wanted to further improve on in order to adjust the training to their needs.

    “We want to make sure they're ready for any situation that they might encounter,” said Senior Airman Benjamin Aquino, 152nd SFS CATM instructor. “That’s why we run them through a variety of drills to test their fundamentals while also providing a safe and enjoyable training environment.”

    The 152nd SFS is also set to participate in Operation Resolute Hunter at the Naval Air Station Fallon in Fallon, Nev. later this month.
