There is probably a simple explaination that I just haven't figured out yet but why so many P's in the gun world????? Every manuracturer has a "P-something" or "something-P"

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.

At least in Kahr's case I think it stands for 'polymer'.
