    Question Back for the first time...

    Hello good people! First off this is a wonderful, insightful website. I truly believe God gives us the freedom to protect ourselves, families, and strangers from harm with firearms and edged weapons. Now I need you guys' (or girls') opinion, please? I used to own a Glock 19 about eight years ago. But I had to sell it. Now I am going to purchase a new weapon but do not have Glock money right now. I was looking real hard at the S&W SW4OVE or (Sigma Allied Forces Model). I have seen many different comments on it. But I would like to know what your opinion is on it. And also I need to know of a paddle holster and iwb possibly made for it. I heard the trigger is the only real drawback to this weapon(10-12lb.pull). I've found it for about $340-$400. All of your help is appreciated. Thanks and God bless...

    Like the CZ100, some people really love the budget priced SIGMA.
    You could do a lot worse..a High Point, or so.


    I've shot a .40 SIGMA..has the least recoil of any .40 I've ever shot.

    I'd say if the gun and price are right ,,go for it!.

    If you liked your Glock go with a good used one. You will be well armed.

    +1..You should be able to find a good used Glock in your price range. Good Luck!
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    A Bersa Thunder 9mm is a very valid choice for $369. I have two Bersa's and have found that they are VERY reliable and accurate. They are also non-polymer.

    I just purchased a Sigma .40VE and so far I really like it. Ive got a few hundred rounds through it in the last week and it eats everythig Ive put through it.

    I agree with the previous post about the recoil. It has no more recoil than my Kel-Tec P11's.

    Its a good gun and gets alot of really good comments on it at many forums.

    I know a few people who also carry them and this made my decision easier to make.

    Im just waiting on my Side Guard "The Slide" to arrive and then Ill be carrying the Sigma 40VE.

    BTW, I actually like the trigger pull. It will loosen up over time. I paid $300 for mine.

    S&W Sigmas are good guns. They go bang when you pull the trigger. Some don't like the trigger pull on it, others do. But as an affordable gun, it will do fine. And you still have Smith & Wesson's lifetime warranty on it.

    Well, since others have commented on your gun choice options, I’m providing just one source for the paddle holsters. Click on the link below and click the "SKIP INTRO" and select "Online Catalog", then select “Product by Type” and/or model, to view various paddle types.

    Galco holsters; Holsters; Gun holster, pistol holsters, western holsters, shoulder holsters, leather holster and Glock holsters

    BTW: I really like your signature quote.

    You heard right. The trigger will take some getting used to, esp. if your trigger finger remembers the Glock. Its not just heavier, I think it is a much longer pull too. But then, there are few if any reports of Sigma leg.

    LOL Glock leg!

    I doubt the pull on the Sigma is 10-12lbs but if it is so be it.

    Maybe mine is broken in. Doesnt feel any worse (or) good as the P11.

    In a self defense situation I think trigger pull is the furthest thing from ones mind.

    Where I live you can find new Glock 27s for $500.00. That aint alot more than the sigma. Id save an extra $100 and get a Glock. Thats just me.

    For a paddle holster, consider either the Fist #18 (Murnak) paddle, or the Kramer MSP paddle.

    Thanx you guys for your input on the Sigma situation. I was redirected to another website that had used Glocks for 369.00 (2nd Gen. of course). So I think I'm gonna lean that way. You were a lot of help. God bless!
