Breaking: SIG Sauer Responds To SEPTA P320 Reports
The decision by WHYY’s (NPR – Philadelphia) to recycle a disproven and agenda-driven story while omitting and misrepresenting key facts speaks volumes of their true politics and what they think of their audience. The SIG SAUER P320 is one of the most innovative and sought-after pistols in the firearms market, and the pistol of choice for all branches of the United States Military (M17/M18), along with numerous law enforcement agencies and other military units worldwide.

Credible experts, including media, from inside and outside the firearms industry have answered any questions with regards to the P320, and determined, conclusively the safety of the P320 pistol. Further, it has been determined that SIG SAUER responded quickly and comprehensively to a matter that focused on the negligent handling of a firearm — not a problem with the design or function of the pistol, which has always exceeded all safety standards.

Still, two years ago SIG SAUER announced a free P320 upgrade to its consumers. The upgrade took the safety of the SIG SAUER P320 pistol to an unprecedented level of safety, one far beyond existing standards of other pistols on the market today. SIG SAUER stands by this decision, and continues to recommend that anyone who has not participated in this upgrade should do so. It is safe to say this is one of the most tested and proven firearms in history.

As for the report of an unintended discharge involving the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA), it is premature to report anything as fact during an ongoing investigation, but here is what we know: SEPTA sent the P320 in question to the Philadelphia Police Department’s Firearms Forensics Unit and they determined the pistol and its safeties were functioning as designed. It is not clear at this time whether this unintended discharge was negligent handling or accidental.

Yay. A press release. Surely the most non-biased and accurate of all forms of reporting.

It's great TFB reached out to them, but unless it comes from a live human and also includes balance, it isn't exactly hard journalism.
