Given the intrinsic connection between the 2nd Amendment and American patriotism, Sig Sauer’s latest commemorative pistol will surely get blood pumping in the United States.
Firearms have always been inherently “commemorative”. They are fine-tuned devices where precision is the name of the game. The hours and hours of work that goes into designing, creating, and producing these weapons is a testament to not only the import of their function, but also for the significance of their cultural impact.
Sig Sauer, recognizing this duality, has released a fantastic new piece commemorating America’s proud heritage as a nation, and taking a thinly veiled dig at those in the NFL who have spent the last year attempting to derail our patriotism.
“A new Sig Sauer handgun the company says honors veterans, first responders and the American flag, comes with ‘STAND’ laser-engraved at the business end to ‘inspire patriotism,’ the firearms manufacturer says.
“The 9mm P938 STAND also has a likeness of the American flag on the ejection port side and the custom black grips feature a flag in flight-embossed medallion.
“‘The STAND is the obvious choice to represent the heritage and tradition of American citizens who proudly stand for our great American flag,’ says Project Manager Paul Snyder in a marketing video.”
While this will certainly be “triggering” to the liberal left, (especially since the “STAND” engraving is near the barrel’s end), Sig Sauer is doing more than making a quality firearm.
“Company officials say they teamed with United Sporting Companies to create the gun and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Honored American Veterans Afield, an organization that works with wounded veterans and active-duty military personnel.
“Some of the money also will be donated to Concerns of Police Survivors to help the families of fallen law-enforcement officials.”
The weapon will be available in limited quantities throughout the nation and will retail for just over $800.
