USMC Pistol Expert Badge
Marine Corps weapons qualification badges are suspended beneath a bar reading the type of weapon and qualification received. The badge is also different in appearance, depending on which weapon qualification has been obtained.
For a weapon qualification badge to be obtained, a service member must obtain a passing score and will receive a qualification level depending on the score obtained. Current rifle score ranges are 190 to 209 for marksman, 210 to 219 for sharpshooter, and 220 to 250 for expert. Once a qualification has been obtained, and the weapons qualification badge issued, the badge may be worn for the remainder of a military career, or until a different level of qualification (higher or lower) is achieved. Typically, Enlisted up to the rank of Staff Sergeant (E-1 to E-6), and Officers up to the rank of Captain (O-1 to O-3) requalify with the rifle on an annual basis. The most recent qualification score determines the badge that is worn. If a Marine achieves the score of Expert multiple times in his or her career, an additional "rung" may be added to the badge denoting the number of awards earned.
