The High Point, N.C. Police Department has chosen the SIG Sauer P320 as the next duty pistol for its more than 200 officers.

“The SIG Sauer P320 is a pistol designed with law enforcement in mind,” said HPPD Chief Marty Sumner. “The features and modular design allow this pistol to be fitted to each shooter for comfort of grip and change of assignment. Since the serial numbered frame can be dropped into several configurations, it makes this one pistol for all assignments.” As a firearm instructor with more than 20 years of experience, Sumner called the decision to select the P320 an easy one to make.

The HPPD officers tested the P320 in live-fire range scenarios, with results showing that 85 percent of the officers ranked the P320 as their preferred pistol. Sumner noted that during qualification testing, officers consistently scored above their averages with the P320, many only picking up the pistol for the first time at the time of the test. The P320’s striker design, smooth and clean trigger, along with the ability to tune the gun’s ergonomics to the officer were all cited as reason behind these scores, Sumner said.
