designated unaccompanied access are exempt from the two person requirement, and they are not
required to be present when a facility is entered. COs must establish internal lock and key control
procedures. This will preclude defeat of the two-man rule.
PART C - INDIVIDUAL WEAPON SECURITY
1. Individual weapons used for training, operations, or any other reason, will be carried at all times on
the person of the individual to whom issued. Except during emergencies, e.g., field evacuation,
weapons will not be given to the charge of any other person.
2. During field exercises and training, pistols and revolvers are often issued to individuals. Such arms
should be secured to the person by means of a locally made lanyard. Military issue field lanyards will
be used when they are available.
a. Pistols or revolvers sometimes lack a device to affix the lanyard. If so, these arms will be
secured by running the lanyard through the pistol trigger guard. This can be done during field and
training exercises, where drawing the pistol is not contemplated. If drawing the pistol is contemplated,
such pistols are exempt from the lanyard requirement.
b. Pistols and revolvers issued for operational purposes need not be secured by a lanyard.
c. Local COs will prescribe specific security measures to preclude the loss of other assigned
requirements as established for small arms storage rooms. See Appendix C and Standards in AR 385-
64, para. 3-1a, b, c, e, f, and g.
2. Active Army unit Commanders (CO) and Reserve Component (RC) and ROTC unit COs may
approve storage of small amounts of ammunition in unit arms rooms. Storage of such items must be
limited to meet operational requirements. Items will be stored in separate, locked containers.
3. Ammunition stored in the unit arms room will be inventoried at the same time as the serial number
inventory of weapons. Ammunition will be inventoried by physical count, type (i.e., 7.62mm linked,
etc.), Lot number, and DODIC number. The DODIC number can be found in DA Pam 710-2-1, and
identifies the ammunition by how it is configured. 7.62mm (M-60/M-14 ammo) comes in several
different types, such as ball, tracer, or armor piercing, or a combination of these types. If the container
it was shipped in has been opened, the cartridge headstamp number must be used instead of the lot
number. Ammunition assigned in the property records of a unit will be inventoried monthly. During
inventory, all loose ammunition and/or that not in banded containers will be physically counted. Banded
containers or ammunition will
