SIG Sauer recently announced that the Indiana State Police selected the SIG P365 as its official back-up duty pistol. Comprised of 1,250 troopers, Indiana State Police Officers will now have the option to carry P365s as back-up to P227 pistols already in service.
Indiana State Police Selects SIG Sauer P365
“The SIG Sauer P365 gives Indiana State Police Troopers primary carry capabilities in a sub-compact configuration,” began Matt Bilkey, Lt. Colonel, Assistant Chief of Staff Operations, Indiana State Police, “Its high level of accuracy, small size, and high round capacity make it a perfect firearm for our officers, both on and off duty, and is a great counterpart to our primary duty firearm the SIG Sauer P227.”
Billed as an everyday concealed carry pistol, the P365 micro-compact is smaller and lighter than other pistols in its class, according to SIG Sauer. The P365 also features a higher-capacity, modified double-stack magazine. The overall magazine capacity is 10+1, however, 12+1 models are also available; pretty nice for something this size.
“It’s a tremendous honor for SIG SAUER to continue to support the Indiana State Police with the addition of the P365 pistol as their back-up duty firearm.” added Tom Jankiewicz, Executive Vice President, Law Enforcement Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc. “The micro-compact P365 pistol gives the Indiana State Troopers full-size capacity with little additional weight or bulk added to their patrol equipment, allowing them to easily maneuver as they carry out their duties to protect and serve the citizens of Indiana.”
