SIG Sauer held its own Media Day event and, in the process, rolled out a handgun that's bound to be one of SHOT Show 2014's most popular products: the P320.

Designed from the ground up with the input of law enforcement officers, the P320 is meant to be the most operator-safety focused striker duty pistol on the market today.

Taking into account the concerns of military and police training officers, the P320 provides an enhanced level of safety not found on most modern service pistols. Unlike its competitors, the P320 does not require the operator to pull the trigger nor use a special tool to takedown the firearm for cleaning or routine maintenance.

With a partially pretensioned striker, the P320 has a short, crisp trigger pull with a quick, pronounced reset right out-of-the-box. The P320 comes in two trigger variants: a standard trigger and a tabbed safety trigger for specific law enforcement clients. Featuring the SIG SAUER internal safety system, the P320 has no external safety or decocking lever to snag or hang up on the draw.

The P320 will be immediately available in 9mm, .40S&W and .357SIG, with .45ACP coming later in 2014.
