Sig P320 Alert

As the Old NFO reports, they can fire when dropped.

If you have one, caution is advised.

Apparently you have to drop 'em pretty hard. They pass all standard drop tests.

Yeah, it's a nonstanderd drop test. Let's see how the other contenders and popular firearms react.
And it is apparently cured with a lighter trigger.

Call me cynical, but if I'm gonna drop a gun, I doubt I'll take the time to line it up "correctly" for the drop. Firing from an impact from a drop at any angle is concerning.

CP88, the referenced "test" is nonstandard in at least the distance (more than four feet, which is standard).
Any firearm can fire if dropped.

3383, the test I saw appears to be a 4 foot drop, non-standard in that it is oriented to strike the beaver tail and rear of the slide. Since a lightened trigger doesn't fire in the same test, "all guns can fire if..." seems a bit premature. Now, if you want to expand that for ridiculous conditions, then yes. But, the failure mode of this gun seems more unsafe than the average quality manufacturer gun.
