ISSUE FULL SIZE Navy Expert Pistol Medal M0072

Navy Expert Pistol Medal:

Criteria: Attainment of the minimum qualifying score for the expert level during prescribed shooting exercises on the 9 millimeter pistol. The U.S. Navy has issued two marksmanship ribbons: the Navy Pistol Marksmanship Ribbon and Navy Rifle Marksmanship Ribbon, since 1920. The pistol ribbon is currently awarded for qualification on the 9 millimeter pistol, while the rifle ribbon is currently awarded for qualification on the M-16 automatic rifle. The Navy issues the marksmanship ribbon in three levels: that of Marksman, Sharpshooter, and Expert. The basic ribbon is awarded for the Marksman level while the specific Marksmanship Device is awarded for qualification as a Sharpshooter or Expert. Those receiving an Expert qualification receive the Marksmanship Medal, in addition to the Marksmanship Ribbon. Prior to 1959, the Navy also issued a ribbon known as the Distinguished Marksmanship Ribbon. This award was discontinued in 1960 and had been declared obsolete by 1965.
