    Smith & Wesson SD9ve or Taurus 24/7 G2 9mm?

    Got a buddy that's unsure which is the better choice for his purchase of his first concealed carry choice. What are the pros and cons to each of these particular pistols. Which is better in your opinion?

    *edit* oops actually he is thinking of the PT 111 by Taurus in 9mm. So S&W SD9ve vs. Taurus PT111 9mm

    I learned the hard way to stay away from Taurus. Had a s&w sigma 9ve that was flawless, still question weather I should of sold it. I say s&w, my $0.02.
    The stupidity of some people NEVER ceases to amaze me.

    Do you mean the sd9 by s+w?
    The ve is a cheaper version. They had some early production issues
    The design is a near mirrior image of a glock. I have the sd40
    And its a great gun. I would take a s+w over a taurus any day of the week

    No he's looking at the ve version, he's on a tight budget. I agree I would also take the S&W over the Taurus any day.

    I have looked at the Taurus models and didn't like the way they felt. IMHO they were cheap and loose. I decided to get the SD40VE since a close friend is LEO and recommended the 40cal over the 45cal. So far my SD40VE has performed flawless and even the wife shoots it with accuracy.

    Of the two, I would opt for the S&W. However, he may find it slightly large for concealed carry. On the other hand there are plenty of people who conceal full-sized guns every day; its all personal.

    I have the old Sigma version in 9mm. The only thing I don't like is the trigger - must be 10 lbs. Other than that, it's been flawless. Not one snafu in 500 rds. If it were a more expensive gun or my edc, I would spring for a trigger job.

    Smith all day. The sigma sw9ve fixed all the issues its predecessor had. I have one and it feeds all day lonv with no problems. I also EDC it with no problems of concealing. Well worth the money imo

    There are better options out there for dedicated carry guns. I would tell him to go with something like an M&P Shield, Walther PPS, or Ruger LC9. It sounds like he only wants to buy one gun, and I will bet that he will want a more concealable gun after trying to hide an SD9. Smaller guns aren't as cool, but they'll fit his needs better

    I agree about the votes for the S&W it's just a matter of giving an argument to him of why it's better, he does care about my input as he knows I'm more knowledgeable about weapons than he. But man he is really set on the Taurus brand for some strange reason! Lol

    He plans on carrying OWB and he's a big guy about 6'6" 300+ lbs so I think a larger frame pistol shouldn't be an issue to conceal, not to mention the guy LOVES him a good Hawaiian shirt!

    S&W

    But I would say, take a little time to save up a little more money and purchase something else.

    Not going to compare taurus to smith, Smith is a much more refined pistol. And costs a lot more. That said I would have no problem carrying a Taurus for SD. In fact at the moment a every shot reliable pt 945 in on my person. I also use an pt840 that is just as rock solid. If he can afford Smith go for it.

    You do realize that the gun in question is the SD9VE, not the Sigma SW9VE don't you? They are not the same gun.

    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.
