Permanent Basic Ranges are Permanent (Land) Live Fire Training Facilities that are primarily designed and constructed to train, practice and assess personnel in elementary marksmanship training using Individual Weapons (IW), Light Support Weapons (LSW), Machine Guns and Service Pistols. Marksmanship skills are taught and consolidated utilising these facilities prior to progressing onto advanced marksmanship techniques and employment of other battle craft skills as an individual or as part of a team and applied in a field 'tactical' environment. Some Permanent Basic Ranges also provide a suitable venue for the conduct of limited advanced marksmanship live fire practices, such as Individual Close Quarter Battle Techniques (ICQBT) and competition shooting.
