Calif. sheriff pulls deputies off street after discovery of jamming in new Sig Sauer handguns

The scenario was simple – deputies carrying newly purchased department-issued firearms from a reputable manufacturer were unknowingly carrying guns that could include a faulty part leading it to jam. Do you pull all of those officers off the street and switch out those handguns until the faulty part can be identified and fixed? According to the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Department brass, that’s exactly what you do.
