Nevada Highway Patrol Transitions to SIG SAUER P320

U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- SIG SAUER, Inc. is proud to announce the Nevada Highway Patrol has transitioned to the SIG SAUER P320 9mm pistol as their official duty pistol. The Nevada Highway Patrol is a division of the Nevada Department of Public Safety responsible for law enforcement across the entire state of Nevada with over 480 sworn Troopers.

“Our initial transition to the SIG SAUER P320 has been seamless, and our Troopers are impressed with the accuracy and superior performance of the pistol,” said Colonel Daniel Solow, Nevada Highway Patrol. “Our diverse group of Troopers is going to appreciate the custom fit of their P320, and having the ability to choose a grip size based on their personal preference due to the unique modularity that the P320 is known for.”

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

“SIG SAUER is honored to continue our long-standing relationship with the Troopers of the Nevada Highway Patrol through their selection of the P320 as their official duty pistol,” began Tom Jankiewicz, Executive Vice president, Law Enforcement Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc. “We are proud of the positive feedback we have received during their transition to the P320, and with the inclusion of the optics-cut on their slides they have the ability to easily expand the pistols capabilities in the future with the addition of a red dot optic.”

Why not buy them a bazooka?
Since the Nevada Highway Patrol suffers from a 65% average on their pistol scores, an expensive gun will not help things. Taxpayer cash flushed down the toilet…again.
BUT, the HALO and Call of Duty bragging rights alone!!!

It doesn’t matter what your “issued” duty firearm, caliber, ammunition is. It’s what you’ve got. Now go get real good with it.

Congrats to Sig Sauer and Nevada Highway Patrol.

Looking at the picture at the top of the article, why is there a gap between the bottom of the front sight and the top of the slide? I can see that might be a problem in several respects.

Still the search for the perfect sidearm continues. If it’s not the mfg it’s the caliber. If it’s not the caliber, it’s the type of bullet. Is it standard rounds, or +P, or even +P+? What everyone needs to take into consideration is that testing, and lots of it, is needed to define any one pistol’s actual “like” of ammunition. Good luck with it, and stay safe!
