    There are ways to work with that. When I say "fucked", I mean ASP randomly decided to change the licensing requirements to transport munitions, Range Control double booked a range, Mother Nature decided to schedule a hurricane for your qual day... five NCOs is more than enough, especially if you've only got 37 going through.

    Heh, it was actually a day about like that:

    S3 botched ammo, didn't get to the range until 0930
    S3 reserved the wrong range
    S3 didn't put myself, NCOIC, or RSO on the Range Certification roster with Range Control
    First memo S3 sent over to Range Control with our names on it only had us as RSOs, no one listed as OIC

    As to 5 NCOs, sure, if it's not 104 degrees, and you have to have one safety per lane since it's a 249 range. :-p 4 Safetys, leaving my NCOIC, myself, and the RSO to oversee ammo, retrain, etc.

    Let's just say it was a long day.

    Does anybody have SOPs that they follow nowanddays? In my section, we are constantly refining our SOP and Continuity books. If you cant practice that in the rear, how can you trust your TACSOP?

    The PL I took over for was a complete and total asshat - I had no SOPs, no continuity\leader book, etc. to fall back on. Couple that with a new top 3 a few weeks after I took over my Platoon, and I've been doing a lot from scratch - and modifying a lot of SOPs I've found on CoP and pl.mil.
