I did not mean offence. I'm just very suprised that it was not part of basic trainning.
Familiarization with the C7 on Basic Military Qualification is meant to teach recruits how to safely operate the rifle on a static range. Straight from the "PAM", there is very little if any focus on what to do in a combat/time is life situation. As already noted, you don't really learn more combat geared weapon manipulation unless you're in a combat arms trade and at the individual unit level.
