i found a copy of fm 3-22.9 on globalsecurity.org
and this is what is says about soldiers who fail to qualify during a record fire range 3) Soldiers who fail to qualify on the first attempt should be given appropriate remedial training and allowed to refire in a few days. When a soldier refires the course, he will be unqualified if he hits 22 targets or less and will be rated as a marksman if he hits 23 to 40. When automated scoring procedures are available that allow the performance of the soldier to be stored and retrieved before the malfunction, his performance is added to the score of his first attempt after weapons repair and refire. If a soldier's weapon becomes inoperable and his performance before the malfunction precludes qualification he is considered unqualified and must refire.
so if ur units are not doing this maybe this should be brought up....
