They are a great deal and a good handgun for the money. You pull the trigger, and they go bang. They also are not picky on ammo. Good luck with it.

Two friends have them in .40 and 9. Neither are new, and both took them and had the trigger re-worked, and it made a tremedous difference. Much more crisp and consistant trigger pull. Maybe S&W fixed that. If not find a Gun Smith and talk with him. Cheap fix and worth it.

Just bought it last week at academy sports. 289.99. On weekly special. Regular price 319.99. Anyone having problems with +P ammo? Going to shoot it this weekend.

S&W warn that it is rated for +p but will wear out parts at an accelerated rate. It is not rated for +p+. I haven't tried either though. Let me know how yours functions.

I have been looking at getting a used sw9ve and have only one real question: what is the difference in the styles of them. It looks to me that S&W changed the design of the slide and now I don't know which is old or new and if one is better than the other. The pic posted first on here is the larger grooved version then there is e smaller grooved one. I like the look of the smaller one, but if there's a reason for the change in design, I would like to know.

Just picked up the same gun in 40 caliber! First Smith Auto I've ever owned! We will walk this journey together my friend! Cong. On your purchase, I'm sure it will give you wonderful service. Be safe!

Congrats on your new purchase. Just curious what lead you to buy it? What was your reasoning / justification?

Night Stand gun! Tired of getting in my safe daily! If she gets stolen, fairly inexpensive to replace! I don't for see that happening! Plus it's small and lite enough to carry if I choose.

I've recently begun my handgun hobby and the SD40VE was my first purchase. And two weeks later I installed the apex trigger kit and I really can't encourage owners of an SD enough to get one installed. I also own an m&p and I can shoot about as well with the upgraded SD as the much better (out of the box) m&p.

I was discouraged in upgrading the trigger on mine!! Just put Laser-Max on mine though! Hate the factory Sights.

Anyone have the white dot fall out of the front sight? I was shooting the other day, and I watched it fall when I fired.
