M1014 joint service combat shotgun - Sgt. John R. Browning, an instructor and competitor with the Marine Corps Combat Shooting Team, fires a Benelli M1014 Joint Service Combat Shotgun at targets while running through a three-gun scenario, switching from pistol to rifle to shotgun, at the High Risk Personnel Range at the Calvin A. Lloyd Range Complex at Marine Corps Base Quantico, Va., Dec. 14, 2011. Browning, from Jackson, Ga., has been on the combat shooting team for two weeks. The combat team has only existed for a few years and is now finding its place in the Corps. Seven Marines, all with an infantry background, serve on the team where they represent the Marine Corps in shooting competitions, as well as test combat techniques and instruct combat marksmanship. "I greatly enjoy it on the team," Browning said. "Every day I'm improving my shooting skills and get to promote better combat marksmanship."
