    The reporting mentions holsterd weapons going off. With witnesses testified they were holsterd and not touched and one on video of an officer exiting the vehicle as the gun went off in its holster with video proof his hands were no where near the weapon.

    It mentions they are unexplained as they are unable to reliably repeat the incidents during testing.

    Trying to find documentation but LEOs in AZ I still talk to related another story of the sig going off in a holster on video. A Tucson PD officer, that's the agency relayed to me and in a few of the online posts written about the incident thatbI have seen, was approaching the door of his substation with arms infront of him holding equipment and the gun fired in his holster as he was on video walking upto the door. Nothing is near the holster or gun.

    We have 3 types of incidents,
    1 the drop safe issue.
    2 the gun going off in the holster while the user is moving, i.e. getting into or out if vehicles moving thru stages at the range or simply walking or running
    3 guns going off while in a holster with no movement or the desk incident where it fired in the desk.

    I'm relaying incident where it is officially claimed there is video or witness testimony asserting no one was touching the gun at the time of discharge. I'm ignoring others and giving them no weight as they could be actual ND or just have no proof otherwise.

    At this point there are a few opinions on the cause, springs metallurgy poor design, or a combination of these. There are also incidents where they can't say anything for sure except the guns fired on their own.

    Regardless of ones fanboi status this should concern you. Like the remington 700 situation the truth will eventually come out.

    For the dense or fanboi deranged I'm not saying the incidents with remington and sig are caused by the same issue, rather I'm saying the way the companies reacted are the same and the incidents will continue untill even the company has to admit the problem. Also I don't love lawyers or want anyone sued into oblivion or hate sigs guns strikers or any other retarded bullshit that has been insinuated.

    Go on in ignorant bliss endowed by sig or continue to be suspect. It's up to you. As I said the truth is somewhere in the middle and with something that can kill someone unintentionally that should at least give you pause. Especially before you carry one or as a police officer, point one at someone.
