S&W Sigma SW9VE 9mm Black/Stainless
by Bob S Date Added: Friday 18 March, 2011
I picked this pistol up for the cheap price to fill a blank spot in my home. 8 days after I ordered it, it was at FFL dealer. 10 days after I ordered it, my wife and I went to the range to familiarize ouselves with the operation and "feel" of our new pistol. It was uncanny, I picked up the gun and double tapped smoothly and on center mass(15 ft). My wife picks up the pistol 4.2 seconds after I set it down and it's non fuctional. Triggger pull. Trigger pull. Nothing. She sets it down, I pick it up, POP, POP. This repeated itself for 200 rounds. As a former Marine and lifelong gun enthusiast, I have a reasonable understanding about shooting mechanics and I have no explanation. On the rare occasion when it did fire for her, the pistol would FTE or stovepipe so my guess is weak grip. Conversely, my Berretta 92 is much more forgiving (also much more expensive). Long story, long.
Strong grip=strong pistol. Weak grip=billy club.
(P.S. wife said to buy another Beretta. WOO HOO!)
