    AAR- Ex Maple Guardian/CMTC

    Safety is always a concern..  and it is been looked at (ie conduct 2 x day ranges.  1 with safety staff, the next without)  That is one step.  As for how many weapons are fired, that is/was up to your chain of command.. not limited by the range staff.  Future ranges here will have requirements...

    Chances at getting into ROTP?

    I got in with less than that.  By the way...  if you have Infantry Officer anywhere near your list, consider it your only choice..  don't worry, you'll learn to love it too.
