A week or so ago I purchased a S&W SW40VE. I liked the way it felt but was hesitant because of all the negative things I had heard. The dealer told me to take it out and give it a whirl and if I didn't like it he'd credit all funds spent toward another pistol. Today was the first chance I've had to give it a test drive so to the range I went. I ran 100 rounds out the tube and really like this pistol. I didn't find the trigger pull atrocious, it hit what I pointed it at and it did it all without any problems. I think I'll hang onto my Sigma.
