postheadericon SIG SAUER Responds To Rumors Of P320 Safety Issues

Rumors have been spreading the past week that revolve around the P320 pistols, the same ones recently adopted by the US Army as their Modular Handgun System. The rumors got so intense that the Dallas Police Department temporarily suspended their approval of officers who chose to carry P320’s on duty.

The news? That the P320’s were having drop-related incidents. In other words, the gun was firing if dropped. SIG’s response: that’s completely inaccurate and ridiculous. Take a look at their press release below.

SIG SAUER® Reaffirms Safety of P320® Pistol   

Striker-fired pistol exceeds safety standards of ANSI/SAAMI® and U.S. military testing

Newington, NH (August 4, 2017) – In response to social media rumors questioning the safety of the P320 pistol, a variant of which was selected by the U.S. government as the U.S. Army’s Modular Handgun System (MHS), SIG SAUER, Inc. has full confidence in the reliability, durability and safety of its striker-fired handgun platform. There have been zero (0) reported drop-related P320 incidents in the U.S. commercial market, with hundreds of thousands of guns delivered to date.

The P320 meets and exceeds all U.S. standards for safety, including the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute, Inc. (SAAMI), as well as rigorous testing protocols for global military and law enforcement agencies.

All SIG SAUER pistols incorporate effective mechanical safeties to ensure they only fire when the trigger is pressed. However, like any mechanical device, exposure to acute conditions (e.g. shock, vibration, heavy or repeated drops) may have a negative effect on these safety mechanisms and cause them to not work as designed. This language is common to owner’s manuals of major handgun manufacturers.

As a result, individual attempts to perform drop tests outside of professionally controlled environments should not be attempted.

“SIG SAUER is committed to producing only the finest products,” said Ron Cohen, President and CEO of SIG SAUER. “Safety and reliability have been and always will be paramount to the SIG SAUER brand.”

postheadericon Fugitive Home Intruder In Recent Home Invasion Cited As “Not A Threat To Public Safety” — Why Home Defense Is Up To You

AUBURN, NEW HAMPSHIRE — A lieutenant of a small New Hampshire town told the public that a home intruder who fled their pursuit is not to be considered a threat to public safety. This is after a home owner discovered that same man breaking into his home during the morning hours. The homeowner fired a single shot at the intruder, sending the suspect fleeing into the woods.

According to NH 1 News, Rockingham County deputies and New Hampshire State Police pursued the suspect for a limited time before losing track of him. The suspect’s general description was given to the local news media outlets but the enthusiasm in tracking this suspect down seems to be very limited.

Home defense really does come down to you. The police will show up after it’s over and gladly take your statement after the fact but they’re not interested in pursuing someone for several days or even several hours.

Think to yourself: what if this man was violent? What if he had no qualms about using violence to achieve his means and it was just one armed homeowner stopping him?

Now ask what would have happened if that homeowner had not been armed.

This is why home defense is safely within the jurisdiction of the occupants of that home. It’s every person’s duty to be prepared to fight off potential intruders. Each household can approach this in a fashion that benefits them best, but ultimately they have to pursue it.

In a future article, we’ll talk a bit more about home defense preparedness. There’s an issue of either staging a gun where it’s accessible for trusted family members to use or always carrying. We prefer always carrying. It’s a good habit to get into as a licensed concealed carrier and it’s also a fantastic choice for those who are just interested in keeping their home a bit safer.

You can’t use a gun that you don’t have on you. Your home deserves it and your family deserves it, too. Think defensively and carry within the home.
