THE Philippine Army's 53rd Infantry "Matapat" Battalion (IB) conducted Two-Gun Training to enhance the troopers’ gun handling proficiency.

The 53IB said in a statement that the training is part of its Small Unit Leadership Development Training (SULDT) for Scout Platoon.

The SULDT aims to empower the 53IB small-unit leaders to provide effective command and control while training to be physically fit and mentally tough.

The 53IB said that the training will enhance the troopers' gun-switching capabilities, providing them the skills to react to various combat scenarios using their pistols and rifles.

The training was held last Sunday at the 53IB headquarters’ firing range in Camp Sabido, Guipos, Zamboanga del Sur.

Meanwhile, it has also conducted reveille exercise to maintain physical strength for the welfare of the troops.

“Maintaining the troops' body physically fit translates to a body that is kept in shape—something the troops need to be more productive and better serve the people,” the troops said.

The activity was held Tuesday, June 22, in Gasa village, Lakewood, Zamboanga del Sur. (SunStar Zamboanga)
