When I was an active duty Marine, we would have to qualify yearly with our M16 A1's. The targets were on a frame, operated by rope and pulley, and you sit and stand in the "butts" below grade at the target line and "pull" the target down and record the score, and mark the target, and run it back up for the shooter to see where his shots were hitting. If he missed the target completely, you waved a red flag back and forth across the target, commonly referred to as "Maggie's Drawers", it was great fun to do that when someone missed.

Anyway's, the sound of 5.56X45mm's cracking through the paper targets just four feet above your head was quite impressive.
