Ric Hall’s Photo Corner

For this week’s photo corner, Ric has selected the theme of “Firearms Training at ‘Depot’ Division.”

 

 

 

 

 

For many new Force recruits, their “Depot” firearms training was their first exposure to firearms.  While others, recruits it was just a review.

The photographs below provide an older perspective of firearms training at “Depot.”
