Each member of the team must have 2 mags with 6 5.56 rounds each (for a total of 12 bullets) and 1 mag of 3 9mm rounds. The event starts when a pro-timer gives the GO, the first member of the team then go to the first stage where he need to go prone to engage three targets with 2 rounds each trough the barricade opening. The shooter will then move to stage 2, kneel, and shoot 2 rounds at each of the 4 targets trough the barricade openings. Once done, the shooter rises and moves to the 3rd and final stage, stay on his feet and shoot a steel plate trough the barricade openings. As he finishes the course, the soldier run to the waiting area where his other teammates are waiting, when inside the zone a second member can then start the course and repeat all the steps.
