SIG P320s are NOT Drop Safe.  Discontinue carrying them for your own safety.

The Truth About Guns just released a video showing three of their team drop-testing a Sig P320.  When held from the front forward corner of the trigger guard, the gun discharged two out of three times when dropped from about chest-high. If you have a Sig P320, I strongly recommend you take it out of circulation at once.  Do...
