I purchased my S&W SW9VE from Bud's. It was my first order from Bud's, and the customer satisfaction is no lie. very quick shipping.
The gun itself is a bit of nostalgia for me. The first gun I owned was the 40 version of this, and I traded it in towards my first 1911. Even though I'm now addicted to 1911's, I was always disappointed that I traded it. Besides for the trigger, which is, admittedly, awful, the gun is very good for the money.
Out of the 40 version, I never had any failures of any kind, over about 500 rounds. Out of the box on the nine, however, I had a few feeding issues within the first mag, but after that, no failures at all through my first 100 shots. I guess it just needed to warm up. I would have no problem recommending this for a home defense pistol, as long as you understand that the trigger is a ridiculously long pull....like maybe twice as hard as any other gun I've ever fired, which is quite a few. Hey, some people like that because it gives them a more secure feeling that the gun won't misfire. That's not what I feel about it, but I've heard that argument.
All-in-all, I would say if you are considering buying one, try out a friend's first to get a feel for the trigger first hand. If it's something you can tolerate, then the gun is definitely worth the money. For the price range, I might recommend a Taurus Millennium Pro over this, for about 50 dollars more, plus it's a little more concealable, if that's what you are looking for.
