U.S.A.-( SIG SAUER Academy, the leading provider of the highest quality firearms instruction and tactical training in the world, is pleased to announce that DCF Guns East in Colorado Springs, Colorado will be hosting on-location SIG SAUER Academy courses as an official affiliated SIG SAUER Academy Outpost.

Beginning in February 2023 SIG SAUER Academy course offerings will be taught by the world-renowned SIG SAUER Academy instructors onsite at the DCF Guns East location. The course offerings are as follows:

Handgun 101:

This comprehensive course provides hands-on training and the basic knowledge necessary to safely handle, load, fire, and maintain most types of semi-automatic pistols. Classroom and range time offer ample opportunity to achieve the skills for success in a casual, stress-free environment.

Handgun 102:

This is step 2 in the SIG SAUER Academy foundational handgun series. Utilizing the principles of training in Handgun 101, this course takes students through the efficient and safe use of a handgun. Working from the holster, performing reloads clearing stoppages and correctly manipulating a trigger to maximize accuracy are all thoroughly taught in a relaxed, hands-on environment.

Handgun 103:

This intensive one-day class is designed to take your skills to the next level. Handgun 103 builds upon and refines the skill sets previously established in Handgun 102 while also introducing shooters to new drills, cutting-edge concepts, and core shooting principles.

Handgun 104:

A fast-paced class of defensive handgun drills designed to increase time on target and performance with one common objective: surviving a deadly force encounter armed with a handgun.

Pistol Mounted Optics:

Leave the Iron Age behind. There is no longer any debate that a red dot makes for faster, more accurate shots over iron sights. Take your shooting to the next level with the course built specifically around this major advancement in firearm technology and learn to shoot and engage targets with a pistol-mounted red dot.

Basic Trauma Management:

This course teaches students how to keep themselves and their team members alive and fighting in critical injury situations. Students will master basic lifesaving emergency medical skills using equipment available under field conditions. Training scenarios presented also include basic weapon manipulation and live fire while simulating high-risk situations. Other topics covered include suppressive fire techniques, evasive action, and preparing wounded team members for evacuation and advanced medical care.

Should have picked a free state.


For real!

The Trauma Management might come in handy if someone or their team members gets shot with their own P320 when it unintentionally discharges itself, with no fingers on the trigger.


Here, I am providing a little backup to your statement. I bought two Sigsaure P938s spaced 1.5 years apart and they both had the same sear problem, one of them twice. My hellcats replaced them.

The Sig Sauer accidental discharge lawsuits claim Sig Sauer, Inc. failed to adequately design the P320 and sold an inherently dangerous weapon capable of causing catastrophic injuries to users and bystanders when the weapon discharges a round without the user pulling the trigger.


That is scary, musicman44! I have a 938. Shot it once or twice to break it in and test it. I read about reliability issues with it, mostly centered around its dumb two-part guide rod. I ordered an aftermarket single piece guide rod and installed it but have not carried or fired it since. Part of the reason was lack of available suitable (to me) holsters. I did not realize the 938 also had the sear issue. I have a couple of the old school (1990’s) Sigs, one of which is my most treasured handgun (P226). I am unlikely to… Read more »


I’m not buying another sig. You have to fire your p938 around 300 times. Mine had a problem once at around 240. My wife had a problem around 256, had it repaired and then it happened about around 183. I hear if you can make 500 rounds through a gun with no hickups that it is broken in and ready to rock. I have both my sigs up to 350 and now they sit in the safe, retired because our hellcats blow them away. Not quite as comfortable but 16 rather than 8 and deadly accurate. My uncle in Germany… Read more »
