Yet another excellent resource from the folks at

This manual provides guidance for planning and executing training on the 5.56-mm M16-series rifle (M16A1/A2/A3/A4) and M4 carbine. It is a guide for commanders, leaders, and instructors to develop training programs, plans, and lessons that meet the objectives or intent of the United States Army rifle marksmanship program and FM 25-100 (Training the Force).

This manual is organized to lead the trainer through the material needed to conduct training during initial entry training (IET) and unit sustainment training. Preliminary subjects include discussion on the weapons' capabilities, mechanical training, and the fundamentals and principles of rifle marksmanship. Live-fire applications are scheduled after the soldier has demonstrated preliminary skills.

The proponent of this publication is the U.S. Army Infantry School.

Really good reading material for someone intent on teaching someone to shoot well from scratch. Also good for directing people away from bad habits that most people develope over time. If you can find the DM (designated marksman) or sniper TMs, there's even better shit. You also have to keep in mind when reading these training manuals that they're meant to teach, vocabulary wise, at roughly a 5th grade level (no joke).
Funny thing is I am a poor ass shot with peep sights compared to old style V notch. I shot so much better with my AK or 84 year old Mauser than my AR. I know its supposed to make you a better shot but I hate the damned things.
For the longest time, I hated peep sights, but after a shitload of time shooting through peep sights, I came to prefer them. Nowadays I shoot better with peep sights than anything else.
IM thinking of picking up a couple of those crosshair frotn sights for my FAL and AR to make it easier. The only peep sight gun that I do well with is my MAS 36
