SHOT Show 2018 – A pistol to honor the American flag, in support for veterans and first responders who protect and defend freedom every day
Made with pride in Newington, NH, the 9mm P938 STAND was showcased at the 2018 SHOT Show by SIG Sauer; the of the P938 STAND is slide engraved in the likeness of the American flag with the word “STAND” boldly displayed on the ejection port side of the gun, and the custom black grips feature a medallion embossed with a flag in flight.
The P938 STAND is the result of SIG Sauer's teaming up with United Sporting Companies to offer a unique firearm whose sales proceeds would be donated in part 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, SIG Sauer's Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President for Commercial sales.
« 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.»
