If the Dallas PD drop tested all available pistols in this class, how many others would fail ? It seems a bit unfair to Sig. No, I don't own one. I can't afford them.
As far as I know, DPD did not drop test any guns at all. Their bulletin was not based on any testing that they performed.

Here's a video where some other roughly similar designs are drop tested to see if they share the same problem as the P320.

This doesn't provide a ton of information because although the designs are similar in some ways they are different in other ways. A specific drop angle that sets off one gun might not affect another one. The key to making guns drop safe is having the designer provide input on how inertia could compromise the gun's safety systems so that the manufacturer can do meaningful testing on that particular design.
Do you know about the TEXAS State Rifle Association?
