20 Gunshot Victims Wounded By Their Defective SIG SAUER P320 Pistols, File An Unprecidented Lawsuit Against The Gunmaker

People have been injured by accidental fires from SIG Sauer guns, and they’re people who know how to use them properly—police officers and Army veterans. But when the gun is defective, even the most skilled user can have an accident.


Florida officer’s SIG Sauer lawsuit

Bob Northrop is a decorated veteran and was a Tampa, Florida police officer for 30 years. After returning, he was a reserve officer for 19 years. He was about to become the longest-serving officer for the city of Tampa.

But then his career came to an abrupt halt on February 27, 2020.

Northrop was working an extra-duty job at a high school, patrolling school sporting events. He was walking the ball fields at Jefferson High School and began to attach a set of keys to his service belt. When his hand brushed his holster to attach the keys, his SIG Sauer P320 pistol fired by itself. There were dozens of students just feet away.

The bullet blew apart the bones in his leg and ankle and he required surgery, screws, rods and lengthy rehabilitation. Northrop remained in the hospital for weeks after the accidental shooting.

A Florida postal carrier is dead after being mauled by 5 dogs

“One neighbor brought his firearm along and fired several shots in the air in an attempt to disrupt the attack.” “That was unsuccessful.

August 23, 2022

A U.S. Postal Service carrier who was attacked by five dogs in Putnam County, Florida, has died, a sheriff’s official said.

Pamela Jane Rock, 61, died at a hospital Monday night, the day after the vicious attack, which a neighbor tried to stop by firing into the air, sheriff’s Col. Joseph Wells said Tuesday at a news conference.

“One neighbor brought his firearm along and fired several shots in the air in an attempt to disrupt the attack,” Wells said. “That was unsuccessful.

Officers applied tourniquets to stem the loss of blood, but during the drive to the hospital, Rock went into cardiac arrest.

Neighbors and the dogs’ owner pulled the animals off Rock after they heard her scream, he said. The animals were seized and will be euthanized. Additional details about the dogs, including size or breed, were not provided.

Rock’s niece told NBC affiliate WTLV of Jacksonville that Rock had recently completed training with the Postal Service and was in a postal vehicle when it broke down Sunday in a neighborhood about 65 miles south of Jacksonville.

She said that her aunt was horrifically wounded and that doctors amputated an arm in their attempt to save her.

Animal control officials had visited the dogs’ home at least twice in the last three years, Wells said.

5 killed by Texas escapee died from gunshot and stab wounds

June 9, 2022

CENTERVILLE, Texas (AP) — A Texas grandfather and his four grandsons killed by a prison escapee died from gunshots, sharp force injuries and stab wounds, a medical examiner’s report said.

Convicted murderer Gonzalo Lopez escaped from a prison transport bus last month and is accused of killing Mark Collins, 66, and his four grandsons, who ranged in age from 11 to 18, authorities said.

Authorities believe Lopez attacked the family at their ranch near Centerville, about 115 miles south of Dallas, then stole their truck and drove it more than 200 miles before he was shot to death by police.

A medical examiner’s report released Thursday by a Leon County justice of the peace said Collins and his 18-year-old grandson, Waylon Collins, died from gunshot wounds and sharp force injuries.

The three younger grandsons — 16-year-old Carson Collins, 11-year-old Hudson Collins, and 11-year-old Bryson Collins — died from gunshots and stab wounds.

Joe Biden Would Not Approve: Florida woman, 8 months pregnant, uses AR-15 to shoot and kill armed intruder

After two men broke in and began pistol-whipping her husband, the woman, who is eight months pregnant, fired a shot from the family’s AR-15-style rifle ending the confrontation.

Litha, Florida – November 4, 2019

A Florida woman who is eight months pregnant used an AR-15 to shoot and kill one of two intruders who were terrorizing her family, authorities say.

The incident happened Wednesday in Lithia, which is about 25 miles southeast of Tampa, according to TV station WHNS.

Jeremy King told Bay News 9 that he was at home with his wife and their 11-year-old daughter when the intruders burst into their home. Both were armed.

While King was being held at gunpoint, he says his wife walked into the room and was nearly shot. She retreated and grabbed the AR-15, opening fire.

“[They] came in with two normal pistols and my AR stopped it,” King said in an interview with Bay News 9. “[My wife] evened the playing field and kept them from killing me.”

The intruder who was shot collapsed about 200 feet outside the home. The other intruder is still on the loose.

King suffered a fractured eye socket, a fractured sinus cavity and a concussion to go along with 20 stitches from the attack.

Firing A Warning Shoot – Never a good idea!

Firing a warning shot cost man over $10,000 in attorney fees.

Noted criminal defense attorney Tom Grieve in a recent interview with Kevin Michalowski, the executive editor of Concealed Carry Magazine . . .

“Every single time — not sometimes, not usually, not maybe, or most, or nearly all — every time I’ve had a client fire a warning shot, they have been arrested, they have gone to jail, and they have been criminally charged. Not 99% of the time — 100% of the time.”

If you carry a gun or keep one at home, that’s important to know.

In fact, in the case Tom and Kevin were discussing, the man who fired a warning shot spent $10,000+ on attorneys and still had to take a plea deal.

But why does it work that way?

It’s pretty simple.

When you fire a warning shot, that’s typically considered using deadly force.

Here’s the catch:

You’re only allowed to use deadly force when you’re in fear of death or great bodily harm.

So the question becomes…

If you were in fear of death or great bodily harm, why did you fire a warning shot instead of shooting at the threat?”

Now, you’re trapped.

This is why it’s so important that you get training on the justified use of deadly force.

Either you can pay an attorney $10,000+ to tell you what you should have done…

You Took A Concealed Carry Class, Now What?

There is more to owning and using a gun than just knowing how to pull a trigger.

If you took a concealed carry class did it look like this . . . .

If it didn’t, may be you should consider a class that does. A class that trains you how to use a firearm to defend your life and the lives of your loved ones.

There is more to owning and using a gun than just knowing how to pull a trigger.

Yesterday we graduated another class of advanced, concealed carry guardians.  They did not complete just another “concealed carry’ class, like those conducted at gun shows, gun shops or in rented hotel rooms. They completed over 15 hours of advanced, tactical, handgun training.  You read that correctly, over 15 hours.

These advanced, trained graduates will have your back while you are shopping, fueling your vehicle or attending church services.Rest assured, there are trained people out there carrying concealed firearms among you.  They may be far and few between, but they are there. 

We make every effort to train as many people as possible.  But, we can only train those who register to be qualified to carry a deadly weapon in public.

We don’t want to train everyone who wants a concealed carry license.  We only want to train those who are serious about learning how to defend their lives and the lives of their loved ones.

Others conduct classes to qualify people to apply for a concealed carry license. We conduct classes to not only to qualify people to apply for a concealed carrry license, we qualify people to carry a deadly weapon in public.

If your concealed carry class did not look like the photos above, you may want to contact us for real, concealed carry, firearms training.

Not all concealed carry classes are alike.


Orlando Grandmother Defends Home – Shoots, Kills Intruder

When the man advanced on her, Virginia fired one warning shot into the air.

Sunday afternoon, May 22nd Virginia Morrison, 70 was confronted in her living room by an unknown, middle-aged male intruder.

Virginia immediately demanded to know who he was, what he wanted and what he was doing there. Standing there mute, the intruder did not reply. At that point, Virginia attempted to scare him off, striking the man in the face with the bristle end of a broom.

When her attempts failed, she shouted to her live-in companion, Charlie, 80, who was in an adjacent room, to get his gun.

Failing to dissuade the intruder with her broom, Virginia threw her cell phone at the man.

Upon Charlie entering the room and assessing the situation, he fired one round from is .45 caliber semi-automatic into the living room floor to frighten off the intruder. Again, the intruder was undeterred.

At that point Virginia retreated to get her own gun. Virginia then exited the home by the backdoor and circled the house to the front yard where she again encountered the intruder.

Standing in the front yard facing her assailant, Virginia again shouted to the man demanding to know who he was, what he wanted and what he was doing there. Again, her assailant did not answer. Virginia then warned him that she had a gun and was prepared to use it.

When the man advanced on her, Virginia fired one warning shot into the air. Again unfazed, the man continued to walk toward her. Virginia then pointed her .38 Special revolver at her assailant’s chest and fired a single shot, striking her assailant in the chest.

Clutching his chest and seeing blood on his hands, the assailant turned, took several steps toward the driveway and fell to the ground, where he died.

What Virginia Morrison did right:

  1. Called for assistance from her companion.
  2. Retreated from the room to obtain her gun.
  3. Exited the home.
  4. Fired one well-placed shot in her assailant’s center of mass, neutralizing the threat.
  5. Had a sufficient caliber gun to neutralize the threat.

What Virginia and Charlie did wrong: Oh my!

  1. Initially, tried to speak with and rationalize with the intruder.
  2. Initially, attempted to scare off the intruder with a broom, when her help was only feet away.
  3. Threw her only means of communication (cell phone) at the intruder.
  4. Charlie fired warning shot into the floor.
  5. Virginia ran from the home rather than aiding Charlie and firing on the intruder inside the home.
  6. When encountering her assailant again outside the home, Virginia attempted to rationalize and have a conversation with him.
  7. Virginia fired a warning shot into the air.  Where did that bullet end up?
  8. Virginia fired only one shot.  Rarely is one shot sufficient to neutralize a threat.
  9. Cooperative fully with law enforcement officers investigating the incident, without consulting an attorney.
  10. Gave a live interview with the news media, without consulting an attorney.
    • At no time, during her recorded TV interview, did Virginia ever state that she was in fear for her life.
    • Virginia only stated that she was sorry for what she did.  She did what she had to do and she would do it again.  She stated that she hoped God would forgive her for killing a man.

State Attorney to decide if Florida woman, 70, will be charged for shooting, killing suspected intruder

The bigger picture and time proven recommendations:

  • In Florida, your home is your castle. Under Florida’s ‘Castle Doctrine’, your home is your castle. Anyone entering your home univited, armed or unarmed, is deemed to be there to do you harm and you are justified in the use of lethal force.
  • You only fire your gun in defense of your life.
  • There is no such thing as a “warning shot”, either inside or outside the home. Firing a “warning shot” can send you to prison for 20 years.
  • You do not attempt to carry on a conversation with your assailant. He or she is not your friend.
  • In most instances, you are dealing with someone who is:
    • Stung out on drugs or under the influence of alcohol
    • Mentally ill
    • Extremely angry
  • In the home, retreat to a ‘safe room’ and make a stand. Do not exit the home. Your assailant may have accomplices outside.
  • When firing on your assailant, fire until your threat is neutralized. Resign yourself to firing a minimum of 3 rounds and re-assess. Rarely is one round sufficient to neutralize a threat.
  • When law enforcement arrives, the only state you should make is: “I was in fear for my life.” “I want to speak to my attorney.” PERIOD and you say NO more!
  • In such a situation, your only friend is your attorney. Your attorney is the only one who can keep you from spending the rest of your life in the state penitentiary.
  • You absolutely, positively give NO statements to the media. Your only friend is your attorney. Your attorney is the only one who can keep you from spending the rest of your life in the state penitentiary.
