    Again, not the same gun.

    MSRP is quite a bit higher on the Taurus.

    I had an SD9 last year that was pretty nice. Flawless shooter. Used it when I took my CHL class when I lived in TX. It's since been sold off but if I was going to pick one of the 2 you suggested I would pick the S&W. The Ve is supposed to have a better trigger although the trigger on the SD was nice as it was. But I guess it doesn't have the front night site like the SD unless i'm mistaken. I've never actually shot the Taurus but from all the reviews, you never, well I haven't, heard anything bad as far as reliability with the SD or SDVE.

    OP, the SD9VE is my daily carry gun. It's proven it's self to be reliable for defensive use and I consider it to be the perfect sized daily carry gun for me. I wouldn't recommend a Taurus to my worst enemy.
    Yeah that dawned on me later. Was too busy watching football lol. Anyways OP, still agree SD9VE over a taurus.

    I have a Taurus PT-111 that has never let me down and I have no qualms about it. It fit my price point and needs at the time I bought it and it still feels my needs today.

    S&W. Your buddy should save a few more dollars and go for the M&P.

    Well the verdict is in...he decided to go with the S&W SD9ve! Thanks for the help I think he will be beyond happy with his Smith!

    Tell him for $23, the Apex trigger spring kit makes a big difference in the trigger pull. Lowers it to about 5.5 lbs and it feels a lot smoother.

    I stand corrected. Apparently a newer model. Seems to be very similar though.

    The only common parts between the Sigma and SD series is the magazines. Not a newer model of the Sigma, a completely different model all together.

    Yes the SD9VE and Sigma SW9ve are different. Have a Sigma SW9ve been carrying for well over a year and have never had a single problem. Have a small range area on our property and have run a little over 1800 rounds. Am well satisfied with performance and accuracy. Only draw back is the trigger, rather stiff pull. Got used to to it and no problems. Also have Sig and Ruger but for whatever reason the Smith feels better. Concealed carry has been no issue either, OWB at about 4 oclock, comfortable with good belt and holster. Think he should be happy.

    Why does everyone crap on Taurus? I'm not certain. I own both a Taurus 44Magnum as well as an SD40VE. I love them both. Both companies stand by their products with lifetime warranties. the only one I've had to send back was my SW, but I still love it. It works well, hasn't ever misfed nor misfired and all that good stuff. I love my Taurus also! I have an Army buddy who owns 3 Taurus pistols and he swears by them! He has two 9mm and a .45 and he absolutely loves them. Please, someone let me know the issue with Taurus, and please be specific.
