    I'd probably want it in 9mm btw.

    I think the Sigma is largely considered the shittiest gun S&W has ever made. Its a horribly executed rip-off of the Glock design.

    The classic metal frame S&W autos (400 & 900 series) are rock solid, and probably the S&W auto I'd consider buying. The new M&P get good reviews but I'd wait a while until they get a few of the kinks worked out.

    Any recommendations for a smallish pistol in a 9mm flavor that won't break the bank?

    ... but the new Smith M&P's are supposed to be pretty good. Talked to a police buddy and he say's their not too bad.

    It was once stated by a person I know that the sigmas are so inaccurate that if he was to aim and shoot me the slide self destructing might do more damage. Or the gun would just fall apart.

    I've shot a Sigma .40 and it honestly didn't feel that bad. :dunno:

    G19 would be pretty nice and pretty inexpensive.

    don't pick the steyr. there's zero aftermarket parts and they're impossible to get repaired.

    I like my .40 GVE pretty much perfect after 1200 Rds so far.

    Not smallish in the least. Great gun though.

    What's a good place online or otherwise for glocks? I know a guy who runs a pawn shop, but he'll probably charge me like over $400 for it.

    I own one in 40 S&W, the thing is huge, and heavy.
    I know they classify it as a compact, but it is nowhere near compact. It's bigger and far heavier than my loaded G17, which is full-size.

    I do highly recommend it though, for its price... it really is a great gun.

    Don't pay over $400 for a used Glock, that's just retarded. And even right AT $400, the thing better be in really good shape.

    I'd check out www.topglock.com, www.impactguns.com, and www.cdnn.com (although you have to call them for prices and availability.)
    Also check out ebay-style auction sites for firearms as well, like:
    www.gunbroker.com and www.gunsamerica.com -- I'm sure there are more, but those are the ones I browse.

    Edit: and on a side note, I just bought a gun from gunbroker, and I felt it was a very good, smooth, transaction and experience. I highly recommend that site.

    I don't own one, but I've shot one a few times, I think it'd be easier to conceal and carry than a 92FS, which I did for a while :o

    EasiER... but not EASY. It's still a pretty heavy gun. And it is very stout, its not slim at all.
    It is dubbed "the compact solution to the 92FS," but it is in no way an actual compact handgun.
    It might be shorter length-wise than a 92, but its very wide, and still pretty tall. And completely loaded, relatively heavy... much like a Sig P229 in size.

    I bought it for the sole purpose of carrying it, and after walking around my apartment and in the guard shack at work, I decided there's no way in hell I can comfortably carry this all day, every day. So I picked up a Warthog, which is currently on its way.

    My first auto pistol was a s&w .40 from 1999 I believe. Biggest fucking piece of shit I've ever handled.
