    I have a Skin Tite from High Noon Holsters. It works well and I enjoy using it.


    I'm glad to hear that many folks have positive experiences with Sigmas, and those that didn't, S&W will take care of them. Two local gunshops couldn't get them in fast enough during the 2 mag + $50 rebate. The local academy would get 12-20 in a week, and be out by Sunday.

    I carry my 40VE time to time in my The Slide or Double Clip.

    Mine has over 4k trouble free rounds down range and true it with my life. Now go on CDNN Investments and buy more "normal" cap mags.

    I have probably 600 rounds through mine without a single malfunction... Although I can say that the Monarch ammo we tried at first was not the best (just not hot enough to cycle the slide all the way back every time).

    However I wouldn't advise removing the sear spring as mentioned above because S&W warns that with some ammo there is a chance that the sear will not reset if the outer spring is removed (which is why the second spring was added during the various updates over the production run). The result would be a "click" instead of "bang" and you have to manually rack it to get it reset. I agree the trigger is firm but you can certainly get used to it. I wouldn't recommend mods unless you are willing to sacrifice reliability and make the gun a range-only gun (in that case, sell it and get a surplus Sig P6 for a range gun). The mods will void the warranty anyway. I realize this is a very debatable topic and this is just MHO. Practice dry firing and get used to the trigger. Trust me if you are under attack, that 10lb trigger is not likely to prevent you from firing the gun.

    Every gun model can have a problem...it's a mechanical 'thing'...but...it only takes ONE malfunction in 20 years...at the wrong time...Hope it's not on MY watch...

    I actually have 2 of them...very nice for the money. About 250-300 rounds through each so far and no problems. Another 1000 rounds and I'll consider it broke in. Got them for 280.00 each after the rebate, got 4 free mags to boot.
