German Proficiency badges are sold one per pack. In the United States military the German Armed Forces Badge for Weapons Proficiency (Schutzenschnur) is one of the few pre-approved foreign awards, requiring no individual approval request to be forwarded up the serviceman's chain of command to the United States Senate for acceptance.

Occasion and manner of wear of the Schutzenschnur are governed by the individual services' uniform regulations (e.g., Army Regulation 670-1); such regulations additionally specify the placement of the concealed button on the uniform with which to affix the Schutzenschnur's rope.

To earn the award one must successfully shoot the German service rifle (G36), pistol (P8) and machine gun (MG3). The awarded grade is determined by the lowest weapon qualification.(Ex: if you qualify all gold and one bronze, you get awarded the bronze.)

* German Armed Forces Badge for Weapons Proficiency in Bronze (Schutzenschnur in Bronze) is awarded for shooting with the rifle and the pistol with a score in at least bronze.
The category of heavy weapons (most commonly the machine gun) is not mandatory to earn the bronze badge. The Rifle and Pistol are the only weapons that require minimally score of bronze.

* German Armed Forces Badge for Weapons Proficiency in Silver (Schuzenschnur in Silver) is awarded for shooting with all of the weapons with a score at least in silver

* German Armed Forces Badge for Weapons Proficiency in Gold (Schutzenschnur in Gold) is awarded for shooting with all or one of the weapons with a score at least in gold

The Army and Air Forces version of the award is a silver colored rope with a round metal badge on a flat end near the top of the rope, on its center it displays the German eagle surrounded by a wreath of oak leaves.
