It is being reported that the US Army has selected the Sig Sauer P320 as the basis for the new Modular Handgun System design. What remains to be seen is what the new sidearm for the California National Guard will be. The P320, to be designated the M17 by the Army, is considered an “unsafe” handgun by the State. This may change should the engineers at Sig figure out how to violate the laws of physics to add microstamping to the gun.
There are, however, unsubstantiated rumors that P320 may receive a waiver from the California DOJ. An unidentified Bay Area State Senator has requested the waiver citing the gun’s favorable Feng Shui.
