Neither of these ranges have the capacity to meet the nationally approved schedule for delivery of firearms training, including live fire training, to recruits for fiscal year 2024-2025
    Only the pre-identified supplier’s range meets CSC’s training needs as it includes a 50 m range with over 8 shooting platforms and has a life shooting schedule that meets CSC's training delivery time frames. It is located within 20KM from the Academy, which prevents having to add significant travel time to, or increase the duration, or both, of the CTP.
