S&W SD9VE 16+1 9mm 4"
by Michael M Date Added: Saturday 01 September, 2012
I have 3 kids and had planned to buy each a dependable firearm one at a time as they graduated from high school. Considering the current POTUS, recent crazies commiting crimes with firearms and the chance for re-election of our current President I couldn't chance waiting. I bought 4 matching S&W SD9VE's ( 3 for kids, 1 for dad) based on reviews of users, friends and price. I matched all weapons for obvious reasons and went with 9mm for cost, ease of finding ammo, magazine capacity and ease of use. This handgun has not disappointed me yet and I have tried to trick it up multiple times. I have fired approx 100 rounds through each and have even staggered the rounds in each clip trying to confuse it. I have loaded FMJ, STHP and JHP's all in the same clip and it hasn't misfired yet. I have not fired 1000's of rounds through each but at a 100 a piece with varying ammo it should have failed if it was going to. Accuracy is about what you would expect for a light 9mm with 115gr ammo so the groupings depend on you. We all hit target with each and every shot with all clips and I was only slightly better than my kids and I am a very average shooter. If you are proficient there is no doubt you will group way better than us amateurs. Buds was very easy to deal with and my first online store to deal with. I was very reluctant but very happy with the outcome. I will be doing business with Bud's again and don't mind recommending you do the same!!
