Last week we endured modern air travel and hit the road to Exeter, New Hampshire to check out Sig Sauer’s U.S. headquarters – the home of the company’s air gun manufacturing. That’s now branded as SIG Air and no longer the Sig Sauer ASP (Advanced Sport Pellet) Division.

I happen to have a Sig Sauer P320 of the significantly louder variety. It’s louder because it’s chambered in .357 Sig. If you’re not familiar with that caliber, think of a 9mm juiced up on steroids and Red Bull. I love the ergonomics of the pistol, primarily the rounded grip profile compared to the Glock […]
