Crack Shot Crackshot introduces Army Marksmanship (1971 training film)

I knew that drug abuse was rampant in the 1970s but was unaware that it seeped into U.S. Army marksmanship training films as well.

“Crack Shot Crackshot” seems to be making an effort to be the Jerry Lewis of the firing range.



As someone who teaches rifle marksmanship based upon Army techniques used in World War I, it is interesting to watch the deviations in theory from the 1910s to the 1970s.
