Most, if not all, $250 -$300 9mm's and .40's aren't accurate at all, they have terrible triggers, and sometimes they aren't reliable.......except SgtMiller's hi-point, ofcourse.

The Sigma and the M&P are night and day. Get some displine and save up for the pistol you want. The M&P has a far better trigger and hits what you aim it at. The recoil seems lighter, easy to get back on target for shot 2,3,4 ect and the grip is better IMHO. Suck it up and manage your $, the pistol you own my someday save your life. Bet you can find a M&P for about $500 new after the $50 rebate. Not a lot of these on the used market but they do show up. Plenty if used Sigmas on the used market, that should tell you something right there.

I guess I should have not assumed everyone knows what I'm thinking...

If I get a Sigma it will not be in lieu of a M&P. I'll still get the M&P, I'd just be getting the Sigma in the mean time. The reason I like the Sigma is it's small size so if I ever decide to carry concealed it's a bit more managable than a full size M&P. I was really more asking if I buy a Sigma will I regret it? I'll likely try to find a used one so the extra money can stay in the "buy the blasted M&P already" fund. I'm just sick of having only my .22s to shoot at the range and renting pistols there is too expensive ($5 gun rental, $20 for 50 rds of ammo, $10 range fee, and $1.75/ea. for targets)

My 40VE is three years old and has approx 800+ rounds through it and works fine, the trigger is stiff but IMO a non-issue, about the same as a DA revolver.

Try the Ruger P95. I got that and I really like it. I held a sigma and I did not like the trigger at all. I don't think it has a saftey either, and with a first real handgun that might be something that you would want. I am glad I got my ruger.


Disclaimer
I know very little about handguns, but i like my P95.

The Sigma series handgun is the poor man's Glock. If you purchase one, call the folks at S&W, and they can give you a good deal on fixing the notorious heavy trigger pull.

Double check this, but I believe there is a 50 dollar rebate for purchasing a Sigma (it may be limited time only).

Take care of these pistols properly, and they will treat you well. They are of a good design, and are accurate at all common defensive ranges (7, 10, 15, 25 yards).

The poor man's Glock with a MUCH better grip design. Right handed or left handed they feel better. Yes the trigger is attrocious if you are used to a nice crisp 4# 1911 trigger. Like stated earlier, the trigger is more like a DA revolver. It was designed to ease transition for LEO's from DA revolvers to autos.

I believe the Afgan Police are getting Sigmas in 9mm.

So you'll be saving 5 dollars each visit. Buy the Sigma and enjoy it.

Well, looks like I won't be getting anything for a while. The lawyers are pressing me too hard lately, so my $500 "gun" stash is being raided to pay for my bankrupcy. Back to $0...again.
