Agree with Animal Cracker
Although I own more expensive firearms, the S&W Sigma is one of the best, if no the best "BANG FOR THE BUCK" in the handgun market today!! For less than $400 the buyer get's a handgun that is remarkebly similar to attributes from Glock, H&K, Sig and of course S&W. I own the S&W Sigma in 9mm x 19 luger, and it has performed flawlessly with various mixes of exotic and cheap practice ammo. The trigger, IMHO, could use some work, but after a 1000 rounds, it became second nature to expect to "snap" the trigger, much "Trigger Slapping" the 1911. Sigma, for the money, is worth it's weight in gold. It goes to show that more expensive handguns do not alway's equal "Reliability"
