How often are soldiers required to qualify with weapons?
Also question is, how long is a weapons qualification card good for?
Your score has to be no more than 24 months old, and be the most recent qualification you shot. Reference is AR 600-8-19, para 3-42a. After knowing you qualified in April 2014, you will lose your 2014 points 12 months since you last qualified.
Beside above, what is the army rifle qualification standards? Just passing the marksmanship training course will earn you an Army marksmanship badge. You must hit 23 to 29 out of the 40 targets in order to earn the marksmanship qualification. If you do a little better (30 to 35), you qualify for the sharpshooter badge. To get an expert badge, you must hit 36 to 40 of the targets.
Beside this, do soldiers get to keep their guns?
Not only do members of the U.S. military not keep their service weapon after discharge, they actually surrender their Second Amendment right to keep and to bear arms. U.S. military bases, as federal property, specifically ban any and all privately owned firearms under 18 U.S. Code § 921.
