Newington, NH (January 11, 2018) – SIG SAUER, Inc. introduces a special edition of its venerable P938 platform designed to honor America and our flag, as well as show support for our nation’s veterans and first responders who protect and defend our freedoms every day.
Made with pride in Newington, NH, the 9mm P938 STAND has a slide engraved in the likeness of the American flag with the word “STAND” boldly displayed on the ejection port side of the gun. It also has custom black grips featuring a medallion embossed with a flag in flight. SIG SAUER teamed up with United Sporting Companies to offer this unique firearm and to donate a portion of the proceeds from the sales to H.A.V.A. (Honored American Veterans Afield), which works with wounded veterans and active-duty military, and C.O.P.S. (Concerns of Police Survivors), which helps support the families of fallen law enforcement officers.
“When United Sporting Companies approached us with the STAND concept, we immediately thought it was an outstanding idea to show support for our country and our flag, and all they stand for,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales, SIG SAUER. “The concept of supporting veterans and first responders made the idea even more compelling. It is important to us at SIG SAUER to find ways to work with service organizations like H.A.V.A. and C.O.P.S. in order to support our injured veterans and the families of fallen law enforcement officers. That commitment is at the very core of SIG SAUER’s DNA.”
“We felt that the STAND idea was a great idea to honor our country and those who serve America,” said Brad Johnson, CEO, United Sporting Companies. “Our veterans and first responders are the finest examples of what we as a country have to offer. Their selflessness and commitment to put the needs of others above their own deserves our admiration and eternal gratitude, and we should all do what we can to support those who have given so much.”
