SIG Sauerintroduces the P320, a polymer-framed service pistol designed in conjunction with law enforcement to meet the needs of today's armed professionals.

Taking into account the concerns of military and police training officers, the P320 provides an enhanced level of safety not found on most modern service pistols. Unlike its competitors, the P320 does not require the operator to pull the trigger nor use a special tool to take down the firearm for cleaning or routine maintenance.

"One of the main points that kept coming up with trainers was the risk of accidental discharge inherent in today's striker fired service pistols," said Jeff Creamer, SIG Sauer director of product management. "Unless they require a special takedown tool, other pistols require the operator to pull the trigger before disassembly. Classic SIG Sauer pistols have never needed this, and we made sure the P320 didn't either."

Featuring a modular grip frame and removable fire control assembly pioneered by SIG Sauer, the P320 is customizable to any hand size or duty requirement. The P320 can quickly be converted from a full-size to a carry pistol. Slide and barrel conversions allow the P320 to change calibers and barrel lengths as well. The P320 will be immediately available in 9mm, .40 and .357SIG, with .45ACP coming later in 2014

With a partially pretensioned striker, the P320 has a short, crisp trigger pull with a quick, pronounced reset right out of the box. The P320 comes in two trigger variants: a standard trigger and a tabbed safety trigger for specific law enforcement clients. Featuring SIG Sauer's internal safety system, the P320 has no external safety or decocking lever to snag or hang up on the draw. A thumb safety version will be available for law enforcement needs. SIGLite night sights come standard, and the reversible magazine release makes the P320 completely ambidextrous.

Whatever the requirement,  patrol duty, competition, time at the shooting range or concealed carry, the P320 brings SIG Sauer's legendary reliability, durability and quality to this polymer-framed, striker-fired duty pistol.

BallistiClean 00 Buck Review

There’s less training conducted with the defensive shotgun than with any other defensive firearm. This is partly because shotguns recoil the hardest, and recoil is not something shooters typically enjoy. It’s also partly because shotguns—at least compared with handguns and carbines—are a bit expensive to shoot, especially if you’re training with 00 buckshot.
