Smith & Wesson SW40GVE .40SW Green/Matte, 14 round
by Gary S Date Added: Wednesday 05 September, 2007
This is my second S&W 40 GVE. The first I gave to my wife for home defense. First, this is not a pistol you will win any sport shooting events with. It is first and foremost a defensive/combat weapon and if you know how to shot you WILL hit whatever you are aiming at. Glock owners will disagree with me and give it a bad review because they consider it a cheap knock-off. The GVE is reliable even though the heavy trigger takes getting used to but any competant gunsmith can lighten that up for next to nothing. My trigger went from almost 12 lbs to 4 lbs. I have fired over 5,000 rounds through my pistol and have absolutely zero problems. I have even ran it through Glock tests, Purposely not cleaning it...Dropping it from various heights...Plunging it in buckets of mud and yet it continues to fire each and every time. I even ran over it with the back tires of my truck, loaded it and fired it. I can do this because it is a very affordable weapon. No problems. It's not a "pretty" pistol like the more expensive Sigs and Berettas but you don't need pretty to sling lead down a range or at a homicidal home invader. It is easy to conceal and easy to draw fast because there's nothing to snag on clothing. Yes the similarities to Glock are more than noticible but you don't see anybody bitching between Coke and Pepsi. I trust this weapon not only with my life but that of my wifes as well so naturally I would recomend this for anyone else as well.
