Absolutely, so poor soldiers more so than poor army. The army chose the gun.
He bought the gun in 2016..wonder if he did the voluntary upgrade..
But it doesn't excuse the other issues where the gun all of a sudden misfired while in a holster.... Wonder if Sig will have to modify the trigger bar with a safety depress like a Glock.
You think the changes made under the upgrade program would fix the issue...
This is why all my P320 variants have a thumb safety (in fact so do my P365 pistols). Manual safeties on striker fired guns just make sense to me.
Wish Glock would’ve sold the 19x to the street that way. Damn you Gaston!
>> claims SIG Sauer pistol fired without trigger pull

P320 UPGRADE PROGRAM
EXPLANATION OF CHANGES MADE TO THE P320 PISTOL
Right now there's an army general who is saying to himself, "I should have bought a bunch of Glock 19's from Cabela's."
Or, "I should have went with the M9A3.
The 320 has only been out for six years. Give them some time.
The cases where I have seen the claim of "fired while in the holster" after the fix didn't end up being so. The officer in the school was fiddling with the gun (DESPITE initial claims to the contrary). School video refuted the claims, and the officer ended up facing the consequences, not the gun. The threads on this forum leaped to the conclusion the 320 had failed, but that hasty leap to conclusions proved to be incorrect.
Most unintentional firings are ND's, despite the claim of the person involved. In a small, small percentage of those, we learn there was a true issue (as the 320 had at launch).
But Occam's Razor absolutely applies to the vast, vast majority of these (simplest/most likely explanation is likely the correct one).
Yes I followed this case closely as it was in the next county and I also am armed in a school (with a G17).
He was found to be lying and a video caught him playing with his gun (as he apparently did often) and was fired.
Many initially leapt to conclusions it was the 320, and cases like that one (and possibly the one we are discussing now) make it wise to withhold judgement until the facts are in.
We often see confirmation biases that get expressed during these initial discussions, where people see exactly what they want/expect to see. MSNBC/FoxNews and others make billions preying on these preexisting biases.
I can't see Sig not trying to make this right with the voluntary upgrade...but it should have been a manditory recall...
The petition of the lawsuit that sparked this thread cites that video as evidence of misconduct on the part of the company by misrepresenting the purpose of the upgrade as having nothing to do with drop safety.
Depending on how the safety works and how this "vibration" discharge happens (IF it is a legit issue) the thumb safety might not help you much.
Of course there's a lot of unknowns in the whole shebang
Don't use your vibrator near your gun.
