There are (or were when I was in) 3 medals. Marksman, sharpshooter and expert. Experts, were truly experts, marksman went to everyone that didn't get the other two. From the picture there is no telling what medal it was since the designation hung on a chain below the medal and if they got other marksmanship awards they just kept hanging them below. There were also recorded events for other designations like grenade, M-60 and .45 cal. There were lots of shooting sessions but 'record fire' was when you were graded for the medal. Two of the record fire events were in daylight, one was at night. All three were with open sights and pop-up silhouette targets at distances of 50-300 yards in daylight and 25-150 yards at night.They were careful to keep us in the dark the night of night record fire so our eyes were acclimated. I didn't do real well on my first daytime session but the second and the night session got me the expert medal. I could always see well at night from the nights on the farm working animals or hunting. The one that put me over the top was the second day session. My position was in a ravine shooting uphill. Luckily, the 300 meter target was on the horizon and I never missed one pop-up cause it was so easy to put the post sight on it.
