    It was love at first shot

    Man, what a sweet gun.

    I read a lot of reviews and watched Youtube clips and compared 9mm pistols and their prices. One came out smelling like a rose when it came to quality and value. I ordered it at the range and in a few days went and got it. i could've shot it for free that day but I wanted to clean, lube the gun and read the manual first. Besides it was raining and the place was flooded.

    I held her for the first time and the grip felt great. It's a DAO and the trigger is a little hard but short and crisp. Just right as a safety against NDs. The next day I hit the range with two boxes of Champs and a handful of PDX1 +Ps and Hydra-Shoks. All shot well and got a 6"-7" group at 21 feet. It's my first time with the gun so be gentle.

    I love this gun. C'mon what is it? you say. It's a Sigma 9ve. Well made and great value.

    Not a fan of S&W, but whatever works for you is what's important.

    It's not so little. The one in my avatar is my KT PF9. That's a nice little gun.

    Here's the Sigma. I don't know why I didn't post the pic then.

    Guy at work wanted to sell his to fund another pistol purchase, so I couldn't say no to it, for five mags, orig. case & paperwork for $180.

    Doesn't shoot as well as my M&P9c, but I think its a pretty dang good pistol, and it eats anything insofar as ammo is concerned.

    Congratulations.

    Yea, I got two 10 rnd mags because the range's supplier didn't have any 16 rnd models. Lots of places online are out of stock too. I picked up a 16 rnd mag though. They sell (gun) pretty good everywhere.

    And thanks guys. I'm really happy with it.

    Congrats man! That is a nice gun, I don't care what other people say. Smith and Wesson makes some fine Firearms right here in America. A lot of people are going to tell you "oh man that trigger sucks or a gun that cheap can't be that good!" Just don't listen

    WillyNilly.....read somewhere that "Trigger is fixed in 20 minutes with removal of 2 springs."
    You may want to check that out.
    I'm happy for you! I got a little purchase coming in Thursday!

    I have the trigger mod video. In it he removed one spring but I don't want to void the warranty. The trigger ain't bad really and I want to get my practice time in as it is.

    Nice pistol, congradulations and enjoy it for years to come.

    Always buy and shoot what you like or feel comfortable with. Personal choice is what counts. If it works for you, then that is all that matters.

    Not everyone will agree on any brand of firearm but that's why there are so many manufactures and kinds. There isn't a one size fits all.

    True and this one was real comfy to hold. I never held one before and I took a chance.

    I love my SW9VE.

    Great carry gun, and the one that felt best in my hand.
