What:  Weapons Training Battalion Recreational Firing (Rec Fire)

  • Range supplies are available at a nominal fee

  • Transportation of all weapons and ammunition to WTBN must comply with MCB Quantico Order 5501, Control and Use of Privately-Owned Firearms and Other Weapons.
  • Rec-fire will never be conducted at the expense of the mission essential training.  The CO WTBN may cancel or change the schedule if conflicts with military training arise.
