Indiana State Police Adds SIG SAUER P365 as their Back-Up Duty Firearm

NEWINGTON, N.H., (April 22, 2019) –SIG SAUER, Inc. is proud to announce the Indiana State Police have adopted the SIG SAUER P365 as their back-up duty firearm for their full complement of troopers. The Indiana State Police is a statewide law enforcement agency comprised of more than 1,250 troopers across fourteen districts throughout the state of Indiana.

“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.”

The award-winning SIG SAUER P365 is an everyday, concealed carry pistol.  This high capacity micro-compact pistol is smaller and lighter than other pistols in its class. The P365 features a high-capacity, patented modified double-stack magazine for a 10+1 full-size capacity, with 12-round factory made magazines available for 13-round capacity.

“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.”

    If i’m reading this right, the P365 is 9mm and the P227 is .45… is that right?
    You’d think they’d want to stick with one caliber.
    I guess that’s just not their biggest concern? Any LE insight from other readers?

    Indiana State Police. Sumter SC Police. Hickok45 EDC’s a p365. John Hickok EDC’s a p365. Paul Buffoni of BCM EDC’s a p365. Justin Opinion EDC’s a p365. Matt of Demolition Ranch EDC’s a p365.

    The p365 just keeps racking up the wins, despite the internet bashing campaign that formed against it in a failed attempt to stifle game changing innovation! The gun industry eats its own when the status quo is threatened, because existing inventories of products are worth much less if people suddenly want something new and innovative.

    They succeeded in ruining the piston AR’s chances of big change in the AR market, but failed to sink the p365. The gun community NEEDS innovation, and does NOT need fanbois, Debby Downers, and Negative Nancies.

      Uh people reporting about issues associated with a gun that’s already in its 3rd Gen with a striker redesign is a bashing campaign?

      • Amer-Rican says:

        Glock didn’t start labeling their pistols with “Gen” until Gen4- the GEN thing was invented by Glock owners, and the same thing goes for the p365- there are no “Gen” labels by Sig, that’s just the gun community’s ‘labeling’.

        As for revising the striker tip geometry, S&W and Glock also had broken strikers in early pistols, and they fixed the problem, just like Sig did. People ignored the first year disaster of the g42, the smaller disaster of the early g43, the Gen5 chambers too tight, the Gen M slides falling off, the Gen 4 recoil springs, always giving Glock the benefit of the doubt that they’d “get it right”.

        All Glocks are based on one design and they still couldn’t get it right at launch- Glock needed customers to beta test so Glock could fix with rolling updates.

        In contrast, the innovative, game changing p365 comes along- a BRAND NEW design, and people act like the relatively few problems are unheard of in the gun industry. All the p365’s problems were resolved in pistols made after mid June, and even most of the earlier ones are problem free. The p365 has been GTG for at least ten months.

          Who mentioned Glock? This is about SIG and the P365 lets not change gears here just because they fixed the problems doesnt negate that it took place so lets cease with with the whataboutisms. SIG isn’t immune from criticism and you even acknowledged the issues took place. The point is a new gun that was rolled out on SIGs watch had 3 revisions and a striker redesign and SIG fanboys acted as if there was absolutely no problems when there was a redesign that fact alone ndicated an issue. Its not a bashing campaign if the issues took place.

            Thank you for pointing out that I admitted there were a relatively small number of p365s affected by early problems and that Sig resolved those! Which leads to my next point…

            That obviously shows I can’t be lumped into the group of ‘Sig fanboys who acted as if…’ (Who are very similar to the Glock fanbois who act as if the g42 hasn’t had 4-5 mag revisions and many internal parts revs, or the g43 that has had 2-3 mag revs and many internal parts revs)

            Context is everything, and that’s why the mention of Glock and S&W were totally appropriate to my points.

            Your premise is a FALSE “yes- no proposition” based on faulty logic: “Its not a bashing campaign if the issues took place.” This quote from you is absurd and illogical, because anyone with even an average IQ can understand that BOTH can happen at the same time- they’re not mutually exclusive.

            Ex: It’s no different than a woman claiming Trump once made an obnoxious comment about women to a group only consisting of Men, so ALL women who claim Trump hates women, or that he’s sexist, MUST be credible and be believed, well, because he was once recorded speaking locker room talk to guys! “Trump said something once, so NOPE it can never be argued that a bunch of Trump Haters are bashing him, because he said something once”! It’s clear how silly your logic is.

            Glock has always been given a HUGE pass when they’ve had problems, and those same Glock fanbois created a hobby out of bashing the p365!
