    Would you like to be paid $100/hr, $200/hr or $400/hr?

    1 IPPT session roughly 1 hour. Minimum payout is $100..
    Where to find such good rates

    ATP $200 for a day's work. Better than my current pay also

    I feel your ATP $$ depends a lot on the range... I hate the safti 100m. At night the night targets are crappy, esp the illuminated ones. Silhouettes are no better. Really, I think its a ploy by the SAF to install shitty lights at night. If people can't see the targets, can't hit. Can't hit means no need to pay.

    Nee soon range was pretty gd the last time I went... abt 60% marksmen vs safti range only 3% out of about 200 firers.

    Trust the saf to come up with shitty tactics to save money.

    my ATP before i ORD was at safti.. i hit 55 of 56 targets.. safti no difference lah. mine includes 300m

    I didnt have any lens at that time, heck i didnt even do photography when i was in NS..

    the key is how to hold the rifle.. a officer taught me.. actually it's my dad, who was my CO during my BMT.

    yea i agree that BMT is the worst part of NS because of the culture shock. after i got posted to my unit and adjusted to life there more or less got used to it. And i thought range is over 2-3 days one ?
