Well, here is my new purchase. I'm happy to be stimulating the economy in my own way.

Looks good. (I had a hard time saying that)

Now take her out and get her dirty!

Lets see some targets!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

A little side note:

I did a few dry-fires to see how the trigger pull is (everyone knows that is the main complaint for the Sigma; heavy trigger pull). To me, the trigger pull is not hardly bad at all. It is noticeably heavier than my XD9, but it is still comfortable to me.

I guess I'm part of the minority that doesn't mind the Sigma trigger.

All in all, I'm happy I bought it.

From what I've seen, the S&W Sigmas are 1 of the sleepers in so far as unsung bargains on the market. IF you can live with that trigger, more power to you. I have since learned how to perform/rework trigger/action jobs on them that RELIABLY reduces the pull weight approx 45%, and reset distance 30-35%. After doing that, they shoot GREAT for that type pistol.

And NO I'm NOT trying to drum up business for myself on here-just letting you know what YOUR gunsmith SHOULD be able to do for them.

Default Congrats...

Nice gun, I'm notice that you are falling in love with 2-tones ....but I would prefer the XD(m) in .40S&W... but the Sigma is good too... here in Venezuela years ago the Sigmas were popular but only in 9mm.
Enjoy it and we're waiting your review about your 2 new babies...

I have the Olive Drab. Love mine. Stays on the hip cause I open carry most of the time. 14+1 plus an extra mag in the pouch on the holster. Hollow points as the cherrry on top of the mix.

NC is open carry?

I've found a reason to move North!

Those Glock & Wessons are a great deal. Enjoy getting it dirty.

Yep.... I call the Sigma the Glock that is made in the USA and has slightly better case head support.

It's a Smock!

SMOCK. Thats a good one, better than Glock&Wesson. I've also heard SWOCK. When Glock sued S&W for copying there design Smith made some improvements and still manages to sell them for half the price and the're just as reliable. Did you get it dirty yet?
