2 TASK: Familiarize firers with the Semi-automatic 9-MM Pistol and it’s operational functions to include the fires role and responsibilities in range operations.CONDITIONS: Given a block of instructions on the 9-MM Semi-automatic Pistol, firers must be able to meet the Standards.STANDARDS: Firers must be able to disassemble and separate and reassemble the 9-MM Pistol correctly with no deficiencies. Firers must also gain a basic working knowledge of the 9-MM Pistol and their responsibilities while at the firing range.
4 The magazine has a 15-round capacity. 9-MM PISTOL.The 9-MM Pistol is a 9-MM Semi-automatic, magazine fed, recoil-operated, double- action weapon, chambered for the 9-MM cartridge.The magazine has a 15-round capacity.

7 9-MM PISTOLOPERATIONThe M9 pistol has a short recoil system using a falling locking block. The pressure developed by the expanding gases of a fired round recoils the slide and barrel assembly. After a short run, the locking block is disengaged from the slide, the barrel stops against the frame, and the slide continues its rearward movement. The slide then extracts and ejects the fired cartridge case, cocks the hammer, and compresses the recoil spring. The slide moves forward feeding the cartridge from the magazine into the chamber. The slide and barrel assembly remain open after the last cartridge has been fired and ejected.
8 9-MM PISTOL PHASES OF TRAINING Marksmanship training is divided into two phases: preparatory marksmanship training ( PMI ) and range firing.All marksmanship training must be progressive.Combat marksmanship techniques should be practiced after the basics have been mastered.
9 9-MM PISTOL FUNDAMENTALS The main use of the 9-MM semi-automatic pistol is to engage an enemy at close range with quick, accurate fire.Accurate shooting results from knowing and correctly applying the elements of preparatory marksmanship training.
10 9-MM PISTOL FUNDAMENTALS The elements of combat pistol marksmanship are:GripAimingBreath controlTrigger squeezeTarget engagementPositions
11 9-MM PISTOL FUNDAMENTALS GRIPThe weapon must become an extension of the hand and arm. It should replace the finger in pointing at an object. A firm, uniform grip must be applied to the weapon. A proper grip is one of the mostimportant fundamentals of firing the 9MM Pistol.
14 9-MM PISTOL FUNDAMENTALS AIMINGAiming is sight alignment and sight placement, sight alignment is the centering of the front blade in the rear sight notch. Sight placement is the positioning of the weapon’s sights in relation to the target as seen by the firer when he/she aims the weapon.A correct sight picture consists of correct sight alignment with the front sight placed center mass of the target.
15 This must be done while aiming and squeezing the trigger. 9-MM PISTOLFUNDAMENTALSBREATH CONTROLThe firer must learn to hold his/her breath properly at any time during the breathing cycle if he/she wishes to attain accuracy that will serve him/her in combat.This must be done while aiming and squeezing the trigger.
16 9-MM PISTOL FUNDAMENTALS TRIGGER SQUEEZEImproper trigger squeeze causes more misses than any other step of preparatory marksmanship. Poor shooting is caused by the aim being disturbed before the bullet leaves the barrel of the weapon. This is usually the result of the firer jerkingthe trigger or flinching. To apply correct trigger squeeze, the trigger finger should contact the trigger between the tip of the finger to the second joint (without touching the weapon anywhere else).NOTE: The trigger squeeze of the 9-MM pistol, when fired in the single-action mode, is 5.50 pounds; when fired in double-action mode, it is pounds.
17 9-MM PISTOL FUNDAMENTALS TARGET ENGAGEMENTFirers engage two types of targets, single targets and multipletargets. When engaging multiple targets the firer should engagethe closest and most dangerous target first.Common Target Engagement Problems:Recoil AnticipationTrigger JerkHeelingIn combat the firer should fire two rounds when completingtarget engagement, this is commonly referred to as a double-tap.
18 9-MM PISTOL FUNDAMENTALS POSITIONSThe qualification course is fired from the standing, kneeling,crouch and prone firing positions. All firing positions must be practiced so they become natural movements, during qualification and actual combat firing. Though these positions seem natural, practice sessions must be conducted to ensure the habitual attainment of correct firing positions. Assuming correct firing positions ensures that soldiers can quickly assume these positions without a conscious effort.9-MM Pistol marksmanship requires a soldier to rapidly apply all the fundamentals at dangerously close targets while under stress.Assuming a proper position to allow for a steady aim is critical to survival on the battlefield.
