Just one... just as likely an accounting error as it could be straight theft.
When I was at Bragg, weapons were lost regularly. Most were lost on field training exercises. Someone would lean their weapon against a tree at night to take a leak and then couldn’t find it. Or some story similar to that. Odd thing was I never heard of one turning up later after the initial searches came up empty. It was a theory at the time that they were hidden and later recovered and either sold or kept.
At one time the CCF was across the street from our company HQ. CCF is the Consolidated Confinement Facility. This is where the guys who got in serious trouble were sent while they were being processed out of the military or serving their on base confinement. We used to take smoke breaks with the cadre from CCF. Lots of good stories there. Soldiers do some pretty dumb things.
Gesh, all the weaponry we left in Afghanistan and they are suddenly worried about one M18 and couple of magazines. Gives me so much faith in my tax dollars at work.
Maybe it drank the water?
I had a 36 hour work day once because of a “missing” pair of nvg’s only to find out that the stupid ass company XO who failed upwards into that position had the same pair listed twice, right next to each other on the list… and the bitch was laughing about it like it was no big deal.
And a pistol that you can go and buy anywhere is a super stupid reason to go to Leavenworth, at least take something worth taking.
I feel for the guys on this. Unikely "lost" most likely a mix-up... First hand experience with SI: In theory it sounds so simple: keep tabs on your [whatever]... In reality: stuff goes other places for mait., gets hand-receipted somewhere for a legitimate reason, the guy who had it got attached somewhere and its locked up in a different vault... and on and on. 99% it will turn up
