While the Sig Sauer P320 ASP is a fun plinker, it also serves well as a training pistol that you can use at home.
I happen to have a Sig Sauer P320 of the significantly louder variety. It's louder because it’s chambered in .357 Sig. If you’re not familiar with that caliber, think of a 9mm juiced up on steroids and Red Bull. I love the ergonomics of the pistol, primarily the rounded grip profile compared to the Glock and the more vertical grip angle. It's also more accurate than same-caliber P226, and P229 models and the trigger is pretty darn sweet for a factory gun.
There is one problem. People in my household tend to frown upon the idea of me practicing at home with live ammo. Apparently, the deafening noise isn’t the only issue; those .357 Sig rounds are tough on the furniture. Yeah, I know, that’s kind of unreasonable, but I like to be considerate when I can.
Enter the Sig Sauer P320 ASP.
The Sig Sauer P320 ASP is a CO2-powered .117 caliber pellet pistol. It'll also shoot BBs if you like.
Guaranteed to be far more residence friendly than it’s centerfire counterpart, the Sig Sauer P320 ASP is a CO2-powered pellet and BB gun. It almost exactly mimics its centerfire cousin, and does in terms of exterior dimensions and feel. Being the same size and featuring the same forward rail, you can use the ASP with any holsters and rail-attached lights or lasers you may have. Make no mistake; it warrants all the rules of gun safety as it spits out .177 projectiles at speeds up to 430 feet per second according to the Sig Sauer folks. While eye protection is always a must, there’s no need for hearing protection, and if you set up in the garage or backyard, it’s unlikely that your pellets will penetrate exterior walls and annoy the neighbors.
