Newington, N.H. (August 23, 2018) – SIG SAUER, Inc. is pleased to announce the Webb County Sheriff’s Office has selected the P320 Pistol as their official duty sidearm. The Webb County Sheriff is responsible for patrol duties, the county jail, and security of the courts. Additionally, the Sheriff’s Office operates an aviation unit and mental health unit. Webb County is the sixth largest county in the state, located in South Texas and includes the border community of Laredo, Texas.
“The transition to the SIG SAUER P320 pistol has been seamless. The superior ergonomics, ease of use, and the excellent trigger action of the P320 has resulted in some of the highest qualifying scores from our personnel,” began Sheriff Martin Cuellar, Webb County Sheriff. “The P320 is built with features the skilled shooter appreciates, and features that the shooter with less enthusiasm about firearms utilizes, without even knowing the features are there. Our personnel are adapting to this pistol faster than anything I have seen, and we are extremely pleased with the training and support provided by SIG SAUER.”
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 adaptable to multiple caliber, size, and grip options. The P320 is available in 9mm, .357SIG, 40S&W, and .45ACP, with a choice of contrast, or SIGLITE Night Sights. The intuitive 3-point takedown requires no trigger pull for disassembly, and safety features include a striker safety, disconnect safety, and optional manual safety.
“Our commitment to our law enforcement partners extends well beyond the procurement and acquisition process,” added Tom Jankiewicz, Executive Vice President, Law Enforcement Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc. “We are very pleased, and humbled, about the positive feedback we have received regarding the P320 pistol, and SIG SAUER service, from the Webb County Sheriff’s Office.”
