    Canadian Special Forces pulls P320s from service after soldier injured by misfire

    Given that this was JTF-2, I’m leaning towards this not being an ND.

    The soldier, belonging to Joint Task Force 2 (JTF-2), was hit in the leg and received a flesh wound as a result of the accident, which took place Nov. 5, 2020 on a firing range at Dwyer Hill, the unit's principal base.

    Consequently, the military has withdrawn all the brand new SIG Sauer P320s from service and members of the unit will — for the time being — rely on their old model SIG Sauer P226 pistols.

    Full disclosure I do not own nor have I fired a P320.

    That said I don't see what it does that other (vetted and seemingly less prone to failure resulting in an AD) striker pistols don't do, that would warrant agencies/individuals continuing to roll the dice on these pistols.

    I love how they feel and shoot for me, but then I look at the parts diagram and realize just how much is going on in there. Not even a gadget would make me feel differently.

    Thanks for the laugh today, this made me think it was fired with intent then.

    you don't live with stairs?

    I saw one of these in my deal of the day email program, last night, and for a second I read it as the Sig I would like to get, the 229. I try to avoid making purchases at night, due to late night reading.

    I have rented two of them, and thought them to be "meh." Other than the infinite mystical modularity offered by the serialized chassis, I still can't figure out why anyone would favor it over other platforms.

    "was hit in the leg and received a flesh wound as a result of the accident"

    Am I the only one whose mind went this route?

    Don't our [US] SF use Glocks? Namely the G19 ? I don't own a Glock but I've used a couple and I respect what they are and what they can do for so many. I do not have the same thoughts for the P320.
