All weapons purchased are collected, recorded, taken on charge and stored by the Unit that has the responsibility for the holding and of these inventories. Weapons to be used on duty are issued by serial numbers under the appropriate authority. Armstores are physically checked by delegated Officers on a daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly basis. Audits of issues and receipts are done at least once annually.
Damaged weapons that are considered beyond repair, along with those that are decommissioned, are so recorded and stored separately until destruction is ordered.
Destruction is done by cutting up the weapons with the use of an Oxygen & Acetylene blow torch or electric saw, then dumped at deep sea by the Coast Guard and witnessed by others appointed to so do.
