I’ve looked everywhere in AR 190-11 and searched a few SOP’s but can’t find anything. I’ve always heard of this and could’ve sworn it was a rule.

I truly hated being the sensitive items inspector for a tank battalion. I had a helper but it would take me the whole day to conduct.

MAJ Ken Landgren - we figured it out, there was a set down range on rotation that the HR was poorly written and the serial numbered sign out log showed it out....after hour two. As a PL I dumped the unit upside down to solve the problem before my Troop Commander had to be involved. He Warrant Officer who owned the soldier (Aramament Warrant) figured it out as I had the first two numbers dialed to the Commander. My Troop Commander would have killed someone, and it was well within his intent that I try and fix it first. I did flesh to metal the next day just to make sure (I had to go out to the box).

LTC Jason Mackay - My first field problem as a tank platoon leader, I found NVGs on the ground. It had the bumper number of the tank on the case. I was not too happy. I implemented hands on inventory of sensitive items when we reached a certain destination and before we left the area.

I am not aware of that rule. I know all used racks must be locked and secured together if the single rack weighs less than 500 lbs.

The reg does state (4) All arms racks or containers will be locked with approved secondary padlocks. In facilities that are not manned 24 hours a day, rifle racks and containers weighing less than 500 pounds will be fastened to the structure (or fastened together in groups totaling more than 500 pounds) with bolts or with chains equipped with secondary padlocks.

This does not specify whether used or not. Contact the physical security rep at the Provost Marshall's office (MP station). They are responsible for inspections and can give you a direct answer. This may be a post policy.
