I bought the S&W Sigma .40 for a concelled hand gun. I was not able to go practice with the gun prior to the class. My instructor couldnt believe I was taking the class wiithout even shooting my gun. I ended up shooting a 97 on the test. The only two things I have found that I dont like is it has a plastice trigger and does not have a safty. It does have a pretty heavy trigger but being no safty I wouldnt back off on it too much.
