When I went through BCT in 1967 at Fort Dix, the 25M-or 1000 inch range-was to teach you to shoot, to get your rifle-M-14 back then-zeroed, then you went to the pop-ups. Don't think it was a matter of Army posts lacking facilities so much as it was a fairly easy way of training people, easier to call a ceasefire and check the targets. When I was in the NY National Guard we several times got people qualified on an indoor range using 22 adaptor units in our M-16s.
