    They should just have the Marines come help them at the range also.



  2. Saudakar on May 5, 2022 at 6:18 pm

    That female will get her fellow soldiers killed



  3. Kyle S on May 5, 2022 at 6:18 pm

    That grip could be fixed in a simulator…



  4. Jamie Sloan on May 5, 2022 at 6:19 pm

    Wow. These are our shoulders at work! I expected much more. Have they even been trained???? I can’t believe that they’re even allowed to carry, much less be expected to hit anything. It’s a good thing that wars aren’t fought with firearms, strictly on the ground anymore. We would get SMOKED!!

    Embarrassing

    i would say…"i am going to use my glock and i dont care what you have to say…my weapon fits me, not some horseshit marketing crap. take that sig P301 and shove it up your ass"



  7. Christian William on May 5, 2022 at 6:22 pm

    This has GOT to be a sustainment unit. This is what it looks like when 1) you only shoot twice a year and only need to check the block on DTMS 2) have instructors who talk about operation of the weapon not employment of it (mechanics, fundamentals) and 3) no one reenforces proper form and technique on the range after a shoot.

    And I’m in the damn Division



  8. BlueForce_Dee on May 5, 2022 at 6:22 pm

    Guys i know we are all keyboard warriors here but these are obviously staff Officers and NCOs… Although the 101st has fallen from grace, they can’t be this bad.



  9. matty jazzy on May 5, 2022 at 6:23 pm

    1:50 what in the hell kind of grip is that?????? amazing the weapon doesnt fly out of her hands and whack her in the face



  10. Rev. Gunn on May 5, 2022 at 6:26 pm

    That was a horrible display by our military!!! Buying new pistols won’t solve the problem! Proper training is what is needed, stance and grip for starters!



  11. COMMANDER QUESO on May 5, 2022 at 6:28 pm

    Should invest in proper pistol grip techniques



  12. KatManDoo on May 5, 2022 at 6:28 pm

    Do they no longer teach to lock your elbows?



  13. Dub Motivation on May 5, 2022 at 6:30 pm

    Army needs to work on their discipline and marksmanship skills



  14. Yeeto_Bandito on May 5, 2022 at 6:31 pm

    Imagine how effective they’d be if they were taught muscle memory and how to shoot.



  15. stonewall11b1984 on May 5, 2022 at 6:31 pm

    Someone please teach these soldiers how to hold and fire a pistol! Good grief that was embarrassing!



  16. Scott Wolf on May 5, 2022 at 6:31 pm

    It’s a 9m not a 45 it should not have that much kick lol



  17. Aberdeen Belfry on May 5, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    She’s got a nice grip



  18. Radical Raider on May 5, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    Everyone limp wristing



  19. Chris Z34 on May 5, 2022 at 6:34 pm

    this is embarrassing



  20. Adalet91 on May 5, 2022 at 6:34 pm

    in US, infantry is mostly low class mc donalds alcohol parents pre marriage born people



  21. MusicMan1eAnda on May 5, 2022 at 6:37 pm

    Even the US military, the strongest force in the world, probably has 15 year old civilians that are better at shooting than them…



  22. Bennett Family on May 5, 2022 at 6:37 pm

    If these are the kind of shooters our military is producing I’m going to start learning to speak Chinese



  23. L Zarate on May 5, 2022 at 6:39 pm

    Nice.
    Good wpn handling tbh. This is why when someone says "I learned this in the Military". Okay cherry.



  24. resolute123 on May 5, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    I was an Army officer and what pissed me off was I was taught incorrectly to hold a pistol. It wasn’t till I got out that I started to really learn the proper techniques using my firearm. It’s not that very hard, but the Army makes no effort to correct its deficiencies.



  25. Steve 82 on May 5, 2022 at 6:44 pm

    Wow… I’ve never seen a worse grip than hers. Holy shit that was terrible. Absolutely no recoil control and she’s holding the gun like James Bond. Her thumb should be touching that slide instead she’s basically palming her strong hand. That is unsat and hard to watch. It’s a freaking 9mm but the recoil looks like she’s shooting a S&W 500 or a D.E. Come on give her some guidance. God forbid she has to take a follow up shot in a real world scenario; she’ll be shooting birds for Christ sakes.



  26. kupperj1981 on May 5, 2022 at 6:45 pm

    Holy crap they need to actually teach those troops how to shoot.



  27. JD 73 on May 5, 2022 at 6:45 pm

    Pistol handling by female shooter appaling. Shouldn’t be allowed near a gun. Pc bs.



  28. t.k. on May 5, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    Is that woman still using the teacup grip? Almost everyone on that range is leaning backward. Thank you Army very cool.



  29. Hydroxside on May 5, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    This pistol Qual is no longer in effect. It has changed to something else.



  30. G Berky on May 5, 2022 at 6:49 pm

    These pistols are cheap garbage I miss the m9’s.



  31. James Huhn on May 5, 2022 at 6:49 pm

    Wow, these soldiers need some corrective training. And someone need to send them some stripper clips.



  32. Assaf Subirana Murillo on May 5, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    They take the pistols scared, they’re not even familiarized with their weapons, ridiculous



  33. AztecRose on May 5, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    Very embarrassing man. They all look like cub scouts



  34. Multi Meter on May 5, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    And not a single officer qualified that day…



  35. ill-Advised on May 5, 2022 at 6:55 pm

    And I thought my qual on my channel was rough 💀



  36. Robert Howerter on May 5, 2022 at 6:59 pm

    101st Os should consult an MP on how to properly handle that weapon.



  37. nickma71 on May 5, 2022 at 7:02 pm

    A giant book of what not to do…typical of our Army. Some things never change. They are as bad as civilian ranges with safety. Not one holster is visible. Where are they? Unused weapons go in a holster, not left in your hand.



  38. Mister Australian on May 5, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    Why are they shooting at targets almost 200 yards away with pistols? Literally no reason to engage anything that far with your sidearm unless your a sniper in a movie



  39. André on May 5, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    This must be the US Army’s famous ”special” forces.



  40. Khalid Smadi on May 5, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    Good ol fort campbell



  41. your wifes boyfriend on May 5, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    Oh Army… Poor Army.



  42. kyle on May 5, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    There are many jobs in the army and most of them dont get to shoot regularly and even the ones that do dont get to shoot hand guns regularly.



  43. Salty castform on May 5, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    Well….that was hard to watch.



  44. Denesh Bhaskar on May 5, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    hand guns are rarely used on the field. Its good to have once your primary runs out. Takes me back to black hawk down incident when gordon had to use his hand gun when enaged by somillians. RIP HERO



  45. Jay Dubs on May 5, 2022 at 7:11 pm

    Lol sig didn’t under bid glock by over $100m for you guys to not teach basic handgun fundamentals. For fucks sake get proper instruction please



  46. Kevin Barruga on May 5, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    Obviously there was no PMI class



  47. Huy Nguyen on May 5, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    Hahahahaha, fucking hilarious.



  48. bush j on May 5, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    give me one please



  49. WanganTune3DXPluDeaf on May 5, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    Hmm I prefer M1911A1 over m17



  50. Jellyfrosh on May 5, 2022 at 7:16 pm

    Pretty impressive how bad professional soldiers are at shooting.
