Well this news won’t please the woke crowd at all. Yesterday Karen Attiah, the global opinions editor of the Washington Post, published an op-ed declaring that, much like the Washington Redskins, the Texas Rangers baseball club will have to change their name.

Attiah proclaimed that the almost 200-year-old Rangers (the law enforcement agency, not the baseball team) is “a cruel, racist force when it came to the nonwhites” that “clear[ed] the land of Indian[s] for white settlers] back in the 1830s and helped capture runaway slaves.

For those reasons, Attiah concludes, “If the team ownership, as it proclaims, condemns ‘racism, bigotry and discrimination in all forms,’ there is an easy way for it to prove that. The Texas Rangers’ team name must go.” Somehow I doubt that SIG SAUER will be influenced by Attiah’s arguments.

SIG has just released a Talo-exclusive Texas Ranger Edition P320 Pistol, with a portion of the sales to benefit the Former Texas Rangers Foundation. 

The Texas Ranger Edition P320 is a full-size striker-fired 9mm pistol with a modular polymer grip and SIGLITE Night Sights. It comes with two 17-round steel magazines.

Special features of this commemorative pistol include a TXR serial number, a custom engraved Nitron slide with the Texas Rangers Badge and the famous Texas Ranger mantra, “One Riot, One Ranger.” It includes a commemorative Texas Ranger challenge coin molded after the likeness of the Texas Ranger badge.

“This unique pistol is a true collector’s item and honors the service of the Texas Rangers with a Texas Ranger TXR serial number, customized Texas Ranger engravings, and a challenge coin in the shape of the iconic Texas Ranger badge,” said Tom Taylor, chief marketing officer and executive vice president, commercial sales.

The Former Texas Rangers Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission is to support the historical preservation and values of the Texas Rangers.

“For nearly 200 years, the Texas Rangers have served and protected the Lone Star State, my beloved home state, and today the SIG SAUER P320 is in service with the officers of all 13 divisions of the Texas Department of Public Safety, including the Texas Rangers,” said Taylor. “We are honored to have this opportunity to commemorate the historical significance of the Texas Rangers through the production of this P320 and help to advance the mission of the Former Texas Ranger Foundation.”

The Texas Ranger Edition P320 Full Size Pistol is now shipping and available through a TALO distributor. Price isn’t available on the TALO site yet.

    • It was a good movie, surprised me that it was considering who was in it.

      Frank Hamer was a hell of a lawman. And the movie at least tried to be accurate in the guns he bought and used in killing Bonnie & Clyde. He is even shown using a Remington Model 8 semi-auto rifle in the final ambush scene, although that wasn’t the extended 15 round magazine he had special ordered for his.

      Good movie anyhow:
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Highwaymen_(film)

      I just don’t get this idea of selling commemorative gun makes and models that had nothing to do with the person being “honored”. It’s a very shallow marketing ploy.

      • And frank hammer sure as hell wasn’t carrying a Sig or a glock ! Frank Hamer was working on the border fighting smugglers and the feds sent a bunch of Chicago and new Yorkers down to the border to help out. After seeing the high rate of deaths from the northern law enforcement officers, he told them he would go with them and show them how to handle the situation without getting killed. That night, a bunch of smugglers had crossed into Texas and he raised up from concealment and shot hell out of them. After doing so, the others were looking at him and he said, ” Now holler manos arriba to these s o b ‘s and see how many of your people get killed ! Gotta like this guy !

    • Guns and Gear just did a video on the latest lawsuit. P320s are still discharging when dropped and/or in the holster even after the mods have been made.

      If the Army had either just gone with the M9A3 or waited 6 months for the APX if they want true modularity nobody few people would have gone with the defective Sig product.

      • It’s almost like Sig designed it with the civilian disarmament proponents in mind, guns that get triggered without any human intervention at all.

        Just think if the Marxist media got a hold of the story, ie 60 minutes,20/20 or dateline, what they would try to sell the notion that all arms just go off by themselves. Thanks Sig.

      • . . . or not waited at all, passed on the SiG P.320 Light Grenade (you drop it, it goes off, YOU are shot, but the grenade remains) and instead purchased that obscure and exotic Austrian pistol, some of which are e’en made in ‘Murica (well, Georgia) and do NOT have a history of being Light Grenades when dropped. Ever.

        Schadenfreude. It’s what’s for breakfast.

        • Makes me feel like a superior intellect for going with the APX while most everybody LARPed with the SIG.

  1. Wikipedia won’t even tell you the origin of that phrase, it only tells you about how great it was that they took a statue down in Dallas. Know southern history.net has the explanation.

    • Real history or TV history?

      “The popular image of the elite law-enforcement organization known as the Texas Rangers has long been derived from television fantasies and historical myth. The Rangers are often depicted as infallible noble guardians of public order. Take, for instance, the long-running 1950s Lone Ranger TV series, in which Rangers are only portrayed as the victims of wrongdoing — never its instigators. Then in the 1990s television gave us an updated Ranger myth in Walker, Texas Ranger, where an aging Chuck Norris plays a modernized lone Ranger who dispatches Dallas-area baddies with poorly choreographed karate moves.

      With these laughable, ahistorical representations in mind, Brown University professor Monica Muñoz Martinez’s The Injustice Never Leaves You serves as a long-overdue reality check on the Texas Rangers’ legacy. Martinez traces the group’s history from its relatively humble beginnings in the 1830s — as a small band of armed men organized by Stephen F. Austin to protect settlers — to what it had become by the late 19th century: a state-sponsored terror squad directed to secure white racial hegemony along the Texas-Mexico border.”

      • never blaspheme again, heathen.
        it’s been a couple years, some o’ y’all are new ’round here.

  2. That challenge coin will give you secret ranger powers and generate instant respect and admiration from anyone you show it to;-)

  3. “If the team ownership, as it proclaims, condemns ‘racism, bigotry and discrimination in all forms,’ there is an easy way for it to prove that. The Texas Rangers’ team name must go.”

    Anyone care to lay odds if that will happen or not?

    • Why change the name, with the proud history of the Texas Rangers?

      “La Matanza (“The Slaughter”) was a series of attacks and lynchings of Mexican ethnics by white Texans between 1910 and 1920 in the midst of tension between the United States and Mexico during the Mexican Revolution.[1] These violent acts and killings were committed by Texan vigilantes and law enforcement, such as the Texas Rangers during their operations against bandit raids known as the Bandit Wars.[1] At least an estimated 571 Mexican Americans were lynched between 1848 and 1928, 20% of whom were lynched in the 1910s; in total, about an estimated 5,000 Mexican Americans were killed during this period.[1][2] Historians have long regarded these acts of violence as individual, unconnected events; however, more recently historians have noted connections between these violent acts and described them as interconnected parts of a period of anti-Mexican violence. One group of historians[who?] names the incidents “La Matanza of 1915”.”

      • Again, miner. You expose your agenda by cherry picking facts. You only concentrate on the wrongs of the white, American Rangers. Nothing about the cross border crimes of the Mexicans, including Villa’s raid, that happened in that same time.

        You’re not an honest person and it is transparent. Once again. Thank you for making Trumps second term possible.

        • Truly. I make 571 dead in 80 years to work out to about 7.13 per year. With that paltry number, it would appear that the Rangers were remarkably circumspect, taking into account the tens of THOUSANDS of ne’er-do-wells that they COULD have lynched. I consider this the epitome of reserved and judicious conduct in law enforcement.

          “Manos arribas, you sons of bitches.”

  4. Well, if we must rename the Redskins, Indians, Rangers, ad nausea, then, we must disband the worst racist organization of all….the Mother Lode of Racism…..The Democratic Party. The Southern Democrats were the primary slave owners, the founders and members of KKK, the party of anti-2A for blacks, Jim Crowe Laws, the founders and proprietors of the Government Plantation……there is way more power, control, and wealth in Government than there ever was in Cotton. And, they tax others that go to work t pay for the shanty shacks, collard greens and sow belly, and Obama phones, and health care…..what a racist racket par excellence. Yeah, DNC has to go.

    • The Washington Bullets [ed- previous name of DC basketball team] are changing their name. They don’t want their team to be associated with crime. From now on, they’ll just be known as the Bullets.

  5. I once owned a Sig Mosquito (.22LR pistol) that had a measured trigger pull of 17 pounds, 3 ounces. I sent it back to Sig to fix this obvious defect, and they sent it straight back (after 6 weeks) saying it was “within factory specification.” If that is within their spec, I don’t want another Sig. If that isn’t within factory spec and they sent it back without remedy, I don’t want another Sig. I’ve had one Sig, and I’m done with them.

    • Have they even had a single new product release in the last decade that hasn’t been recalled? In less than a generation they went from a small, high end firearms manufacturer into one of the largest gun companies in the world, making weapons, ammo, optics, suppressors, etc. and it shows. They grew way too quickly and quality suffered badly as a result

    • They’ll be erased from history soon. Their actions will be viewed as bad. The museum will be burned. SIG will have to issue an apology for making such a piece.
      The stupidity is off the chart these days

  6. Well, they can’t even give away these hunks of shit (it’s almost like people *dont* want a defensive handgun that fires itself if you breathe on the slide), so of course they’ve gotta ad some bullshit gimmick like a “limited edition” paint job. Yawn

  7. I like the motto but prefer the “Perdition to Conspirators” I stamped onto my 80% build.

  8. One Riot, One Ranger is a bronze statue of a Texas Ranger, previously installed at Dallas Love Field, in the U.S. state of Texas.

    The statue was modeled after Jay Banks, who was a captain of the Texas Rangers in the 1950s.

    Banks was in charge of a Texas Ranger division that was deployed in 1956 to prevent African American students from enrolling in Mansfield High School and Texarkana Junior College, a public community college.

    At Texarkana Junior College a crowd of “about 300 persons” blocked the path of two black students who attempted to enter the school, yelling “go home n*ggers” and “better take those n*ggers with you.” Some surrounded the male student and kicked him, while others threw gravel. The Texas Rangers did nothing to intervene “except threaten to arrest” the black students in accordance with the governor’s orders.

    Stay Classy, SIG SAUER.

    • Your narrative assumes the Texas Ranger and Jay Banks set policies.

      The students in Mansfield had already been told by the administration they wouldn’t be allowed to register and they didn’t show up to try. The Rangers arrived late to the game and were tasked with keeping the mob from doing further violence. They did that, but did not participate in prevent Black students from registering. That was totally the doing of Mansfield ISD.

      In Texarkana, they had the same orders, prevent further violence, and were ordered by Gov. Shivers not to aid or prevent any student from registering. They accomplished that mission and, critically, Banks befriended the leader of that group and persuaded him to keep the mob under control.

      The Rangers didn’t set policy, they prevented violence. Other schools at the time integrate without issue and received no interference from the state.
