    Its the SW 40VE variant.

    No one would sell me a 24/7 @ the gun show so I got pissed off.. They just didnt want to do the paper work.. But I had it ready and in hand.. Regardless.

    I went to a local gun shop that had the Smith and Wesson on sale.
    $300 and didnt charge more for using a credit card. And I got a ton of range time.

    First 100 rounds and 6 shots jammed, I think possible because of their crappy reloads. They said if it does it again I get a free upgrade to the XD9... Im glad I bought it from them... :)

    Shoots a little off from what Im used to and the trigger plain blows.. If it still feels like this in 500 rounds I am going to do the mod.. Very cool carry gun for the $$ IMO..

    :fawk:
    The 5.7 can rest now! Until they make it a bit smaller!

    Oh.. I dont get it till tuesday.. Interpol isnt open on weekends :(

    shooting someone else's reloads is fucking dangerous, god forbid I look out for his safety :ugh: You're so consistently ignorant it hurts.

    How are the sigma's in general? worth the money? I have seen them and been tempted to buy one for a few years now but i always for one reason or another never gave them a second look because i wasnt sure about reliability and function.

    ignore me then. i truly dont give a fuck.

    there is a very slim chance anything will happen with the ammo and if it does, he gets a new gun. chances of him actually getting hurt, are too, very slim

    Only 6% failures in 100 rounds, I like those odds! And hey, even if something potentially dangerous/disfiguring does happen, I GET A NEW GUN!

    God, where do I sign up!?!?

    Its Ok.. So far im not impressed with the trigger but there is a trigger mod thats free.. I will probably do it if I think the gun still sucks in another couple hundred rounds..and it sorts out the jamming..

    Thanks!
    I have a feeling the blame may be equal to both sides, I will say if it doesnt get its ass in gear Im going to be pissed.. My 5.7 in 2000 rounds has never jammed or not fired once! not once!
