    TARIN KOT, Afghanistan — AK-47 rifles, Squad Automatic Weapons, Steyr AUG models, M-4 carbines and even the Singaporean SAR 21s were up for test fire during a weapons familiarization range Mar. 11, at Multi-National Base Tarin Kot, Uruzgan province, Afghanistan.

    Combined Team Uruzgan sent an open invitation to all nations of Multi-National Base Tarin Kot to receive instruction on and shoot different small arms weapons from Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and the United States.

    The range featured all of the respective militaries’ major hand guns, assault rifles and light machine guns, said Sgt. 1st Class David Bergman, provost marshal for Combined Team Uruzgan.

    Since most operations in Uruzgan province are an international effort, the range was ultimately an exercise in awareness,
    Bergman said.
