  • Description

    This may be the rifle range of the future for the Canadian army. In these demonstrations at Camp Borden, Ontario a new system of marksmanship is introduced. It's called "Trainfire" and instead of the conventional bullseyes and butts it makes use of pop-up fibreboard targets in a natural terrain.......

    One soldier operates the targets by push-button. It eliminates regulation-size targets, concrete butts and butt parties and hours of waiting on the firing lines. The new system will soon be introduced in camps at Calgary, Petawawa, Ontario and Valcartier, Quebec..... Senior infantry officers who watched this initial demonstration were visibly impressed... One said: "It's so simple, we're embarrassed."
