This weekend was week #9 in my Canadian Military Basic Qualification and it was the nicest till now !
Friday : We only had to prepare ourselves for the next day … and because i’m lucky they told me that i had to go in the morning (4:15 am) to get the food with the master warrant with 5 other guys .
So all what we did was clean our weapon for the next day and prepare our rack sack , we then went to sleep in a special room to not wake up the regiment at 4:15 am .
It was a super long night , as usual i didn’t sleep in fact i never sleep the first day … (pictures available)
Saturday : At 4:00 am i just decided to get up since i couldn’t sleep , and at 4:15 am i told the other to wake up and prepare there selves .
we then waited for the Master Warrant and at 5:00 am was the departure for Farham , we were 6 in the mini-bus and it was a trip of 75 km , we got the food and went to the Farnham Fire Range , at 7:00 am the Other soldiers arrived and we had to prepare for the breakfast .
At 8:00 AM we were grouped by 2 , relay 1 and relay 2 , i was the member of relay 1 , which mean we were going to shoot the first
It was very cold , we got our bullets and we had to fill the magazines , we got for the first day 92 bullets .
We started shooting at 9:00 AM approximately …
Shooting with the C-7 is soOOo CoOoOoL !!! The Feelings ,The Sounds , The smell lol , Really i enjoyed it to the 110% , I even didn’t put the plug in the ear to enjoy the sound
Relay 2 did the same and then we had our dinner and then afternoon was our test of the c7
The distance of the Shooting for the first day was 100 metre , the test was a grouping test we just had to shoot bullets at the same place and the distance between each bullet shouldn’t be more than 20 cm .
I passed the test , my best was 88 mm , we had like a little radar to see where bullet went on the target .
At 18:00 pm we went to St-Hyacinthe Regiment , it’s 50 km far from Farnham ,they have super cool and nice shower , but the problem was that we had to sleep in a outdoor tent and it was the first time , it was very cold and another problem is that i had to be guard for the night .. 2:00 am to 3:00 am .
Sunday : We woke up at 5:00 am and went to FARNHAM again we had our breakfast and it was the 200 metre shooting range , for this shooting we got 65 bullets , but it was a speed shooting .
we had to shoot 15 bullets in 40 seconds and another bullet each 5 seconds … we had to change position , target was automatic , it goes down and up .. so we had to be fast in shooting .
After our test which was also good , we had to clean everything and we managed to take some pics also
Then at 2:00 pm we went back to Montreal and we had a long hour cleaning our weapon and we had to clean the regiment also …
Next Week : (#10) It will be one of the hardest week in the BMQ , it will be the GAZ CHAMBER and the Mapping , we will have to walk in the wood in the day and in the night using only map and we will also sleep outside .
