Police chief shows off his new “bargain” toy as 150,000 guns set to flood Thailand

National police chief Jakthip Chaijinda was pictured holding a new US gun that is set to become standard for police in Thailand.

The Sig Sauer P320SP will be issued to 150,000 officers nationwide.

The first consignment of 5,000 arrived yesterday with the chief saying that their quality, efficiency and capability will help his men do their job to the standard we all expect.

He also said he got a bargain – the 23,000 baht for each one is below the usual market price, he told Tnews.

Some 22,000 more will arrive in October then each month subsequently more will come into Thailand until the 150,000 order is complete.

The chief also spoke of upgrading police with better body armor, especially in the three insurgent provinces in the far south of the country.
