John Moses Browning and Eugene Stoner were the Albert Einstein's of the Gun Industry!
I always thought it was because the pistol was originally meant to appeal to the "Police" market, and there's not really a reason to change the name for the civilian market (note that, Beretta).
All the military guns have an "M" designation... it would make sense to me at least.
For instance the Ruger P85... Ruger Police Model 85? Sig P220... Sig Police Model 220? Just speculation on my part.
'cause if you get shot, you'll 'P' yourself!!!

With The Luger P~08 that "P" stands for Parabellum...I always thought it stood for Pitiful as in Pitiful Pistol.
I'm "P"ing my shorts........just laughing at the good posts and humor regarding the Peeee series of handguns and their references LMAO
Why Waltz when you can Rock-N-Roll
At least in Kahr's case I think it stands for 'polymer'.

Because it is better to call one a "P-somethingorother", than a G-anything!
A 9mm is only a .45 set on "stun".
The German guns, anyway, are P like ours are M.
The P-1 being the Walther P-38 updated, the P5 being the Sig 225, etc.
