Gen. Douglas F. Anderson, 9th Mission Support Command Commanding General, cut a ceremonial ribbon at a grand opening ceremony of the U.S. Army Reserve's first Modular Small Arms Range in Pago Pago, American Samoa, April 26, 2019. The MSAR is the very first Army Reserve indoor weapons range, which allows both 5.56 mm and 9 mm rounds to be fired indoors with no chance of a round escaping regardless of the direction it is fired. It is environmentally safe preventing fumes or residue from escaping while simultaneously filtering the interior air providing a safe environment for the Soldiers inside using the range.
