    New sigma owner

    After reading reviews about it here, I went out to the bullet trap today and rented a sigma. The first couple of mags were all over the place, but once I adapted to the trigger I was keeping a nice grouping. I really like the feel of the gun and the trigger pull did not really bother me since the only other gun I have is a 22 Beretta Neos.

    Long story short, $319 later and here it is...

    I have a .40 and love it. It's no M&P but it's a good gun. I going to buy another one when the price drops to $249.00 that's what I payed for my .40 last Christmas.

    There is another forum I read where an unofficial rule was started that all firearm photos must include a calculator and kitchen utensil

    They've got one now, IIRC. $50 mail in rebate or 2 free mags

    They are pretty nice weapons. I had one a while back.

    Why the hell would you need a calculator and a kitchen utensil in a gun pic for any forum?

    We have 4 S&W Sigma's in our family and none of us have ever had a problem with any of them.



    We all sent them to S&W and they made the trigger much smoother & crisper - for FREE

    I think you will like you're Sigma when you get used to the long trigger pull.

    It is a very concealable gun.

    It's trigger is a lot like shooting a Double Action only pistol.

    Academy has Sigma's for $299 plus the $50 dollar rebate. $249 means that I will own more Sigma's.

    I bought a Sigma 40VE almost two years ago and I put a Pachmayr grip glove on it and it feels just as comfortable in the hand as my 2 M&Ps.

    Thanks for the tip.

    I bought 3 of the grips today for the 3 of the 4 S&W Sigma's in our family.

    I've already put mine on and shot at the range with it today.

    I really like it.

    I've had my Sigma SW9VE for over a year now and its been good to me..... not a single FTF or FTE or anything odd at all. And the heavy trigger has never really bothered me too much but now I don't even notice it. Whoever said its like a DAO revolver is right, I've never thought about it like that but I can see that.....

    Mine was $349 "Allied Forces" version (all black) with case and S&W Flashlight. Even at that price I liked it better than anything I shot around the price.....

    The only gun I liked more of the ones I shot was a Sig Sauer P226 (I think) but it was also a lot more money at the time.... But even when I upgrade someday I will keep the Sigma around....

    I had an SW40VE, but I sold it. It was extremely reliable while I had it. The heavy trigger was driving me nuts though, even after putting 700+ rounds through it and tons of dry fire practice. My wife also didn't like that my home defense weapon did not have a safety. Now I have a Beretta 92FS. Some day I will get another .40 though, it was fun to shoot other than that trigger.

    I just bought a S&W Sigma SW40VE last month. Been to the range one time with it. Only shot 35 rounds. At 15 yards, my first 5 shots, I aimed dead center, and the rounds were hitting the target low at 7 O'clock. but I did have a about a 4 inch group. I thought it was the pistol (yeah blame the horse), and I started aiming high and to the right. It was a sillohuette target, and aiming that way I got the remaing 30 shots all over the midsection of the target, and within 7 inches of the (X) or bullseye. I have since learned I was fingering the trigger wrong. I heard it refered to as "7 O'clock push". TOO much finger on the trigger. Next time at the range I will utilize that information.

    With the price of ammo these days, I want to make every round count. I have ordered a laser sight for my weapon. It cost $69.00 from:

    You'll definitely learn about trigger control with a Sigma. But, I figure if I'm going to ever hold a burglar at gunpoint for 20 minutes while waiting for the cops, I don't want a light trigger. I saw what happened in Pulp Fiction . . .

    Buy a Pachmyr slip on grip for your Sigma and you will love the gun.
