Yup! I cannot find a kydex holster for my 1006 so I only carry it in uniform (with 4 spare mags). I used to carry an STI 2011 but my agency decided we could not be trusted with single action autos . I got the 40C directly from S&W after I completed the Armorers school. $340 with night sites and two spare hi-caps was a price I could not pass up. I have a 9V ($259 new)at the house. It has never given me a hiccup.

I believe I just felt the orbit of the Earth shift a little...

mudslinger,
I had a Sigma 9mm and as everybody has said already the trigger is a bit sticky. I sent it back twice for work but it really never got where I wanted it to so I sold it to a small gun shop for $150. I ordered a Glock 19 to replace it and the trigger is great. I switched out the 5 lb. trigger for a 3.5lb with the quick re-set, it's awesome.
With Sigma's trigger I never knew where the break point was but Glock has no problem. Otherwise they are pretty much the same gun.
Jack

PS: It's a gun without a future, it's reputation is widely known and I guess you could call it the "EDSEL" of the semi-automatic handgun world.
Jack
