Newington, N.H.-(Ammoland.com)- SIG SAUER, Inc., is pleased to announce the Jacksonville, Arkansas Police Department has transitioned to the SIG SAUER P320 as their official duty firearm. The Jacksonville Police Department has a complement of 56 sworn officers protecting nearly 30,000 citizens.

“We are extremely pleased with our decision to transition to the SIG SAUER P320 as our official duty firearm,” commented Lt. Brett Hibbs, Support Services Division, Jacksonville Police Department. “All of our officers have completed the training and instruction process with the new pistol and we’ve found, overwhelmingly, that the P320 has made them more proficient shooters due to the ability for the officers to choose their preferred grip size, the smooth trigger, and ambidextrous controls.”

The P320 is a modular, striker-fired pistol available in full-size, carry, compact, and subcompact sizing. The serialized trigger group makes the P320 adaptable to multiple caliber, size, and grip options. The P320 is available in 9mm, .357SIG, 40S&W, and .45ACP, with a choice of contrast, or SIGLITE Night Sights. The intuitive 3-point takedown requires no trigger pull for disassembly, and safety features include a striker safety, disconnect safety, and optional manual safety.

“We are honored that the Jacksonville Police Department has chosen the P320 as the official duty firearm to assist its complement of officers carry out their mission – to protect the property and lives of its citizens for a better Jacksonville,” said Tom Jankiewicz, Executive Vice President, Law Enforcement Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc. “SIG SAUER’s commitment to the entire law enforcement community is to provide them with superior firearms to protect and serve their communities, and the superiority of the P320 exemplifies this commitment.”

    I get the wonderful chance to brag a little about SIG SAUER. I have 3 – P320, which covers the compact and full sizes. The 9 mm has been a grand choice to use and different weights of ammo. After 2200 rounds, I have only had one misfeed and it operates and handles recoil like bread and butter. “SMOOTH” ! I do not desire to do a torture test, that is unwise. You can run 500 rounds at a normal rate of speed, it works hard enough and you can save the other 500 rounds to have fun later. The… Read more »

    What’s most funny to me about this announcement is that’s where SIGs ammo manufacturing is located.

    Hopefully 9 mm. Given all handgun calibers (9/40/45) suck and are the same in terms of terminal effects on a human, it makes the most sense to go with the one that has the following advantages:
    1. Less recoil/easier to shoot
    2. Greater capacity
    3. Least expensive
    4. Most options in terms of defensive ammo
    5. Less wear and tear on the firearm (albeit .45 is gentle on a firearm)

    Scum like Andy Humpmichael does not deserve weapons like this. At least the hard-working officers that protect his useless ass will get them.
