I have a few gun questions.

This morning i stopped at a shop looking for tools that I would need at the shop, and while I didn't find anything, the guns gaught my eye. Never having a gun of any kind before, and not evven firing one either, i wwas thinking on getting me one and learning to shoot.

I got me a S&W Sigma SW9VE, for 325 w/taxes, and I'm getting a 50 bucks back and two estra magazines. Good deal? what ya'll think?

i tried the 22 pistols and , they are so tiny it just doesnt feel confortable.

Now the questions.

1 where can i take a basic course? I guess anyone can pull the trigger, but I want to lear to do it proficiently, and also want to know the rules when transporting the gun, let's say, to the range.

2 I live in Tomball and liketo know where to practice.

J/k, you most likely bought it from my shop, maybe even from me. I didn't get to work today until noon though because I had to pay some fines up in Huntsville. so if you were there before that then you missed me. PM me about going to shoot, I'll go with ya and show you the basics on that gun anyday if you buy the ammo. Breakdown of that gun is HELLA easy, it's the same as the glocks. As far as transporting, make sure it's concealed. Period. Loaded/unloaded doesn't matter, CHL or no CHL no difference, just has to be conceled. But don't take it out of your vehicle with you(besides shooting) unless you have a CHL. Shiloh Indoor Range is my favorite(I get a big discount ) it's just past Cutten off 1960 on the right side. Go to 1960 from Tomball, make a left onto 1960, pass Cutten and watch along the right side for a sign that says "Shiloh Indoor Range" or "Handgun Range" and points to the right.

Leo,
You can go to Carter Country on Treschwig or there's a new range off of 1960 close to Willowbrook I've heard good things about.

Brand new $299.95 with $50 rebate and 2 EXTRA mags free(+ the 2 it already comes with) at my shop, which is where I imagine he bought it. Not the best gun, but excellent as a first gun or a simple truck/house gun. Definately not a Kimber when it comes to accuracy but I know of a few people that can shoot that firearm very well and love it for the price. As far as breakage, I hardly ever hear of any problems with them and I very rarely get any used ones in, Smith has great warranties too

Yup, went and blew off well over $100 in ammo yesterday with a few customers of mine. Very nice indoor range. $16 a lane or you can share a lane for $10 a person. Go with me and you can have your own lane for $10. I really like the owners of Hot Wells and I do frequent there when I am looking to pop off a few rounds at 100 yds, but their handgun range leaves a lot to be desired, and American Shooting Center I can shoot up to 600 yds for $free. Hotcknstrips, I'll remember to bring their business cards into work tomorrow if you want to swing by and grab one you can. Also, if my coworker didn't show you the proper way to dissasemble that gun, swing by and I'll give you a real quick lesson on pulling it apart.

Sorry man, you got the ONE day that I happened to not show up at 7:00 AM because of personal errands. What'd they say when you asked for me?

The similarities were so great that many pundits referred to the Sigma series as "Swocks", a playful contraction of S&W and Glock. As a result, Glock initiated a patent infringement lawsuit against Smith & Wesson, which paid an undisclosed sum (the amount of three million dollars has been theorized) to Glock for infringement of their patents. S&W thereupon received the rights to continue the production of Sigma line.

Do not get this gun!! i recently had this gun and traded it in and traded up. The gun does not shoot straight worth a and is unadjustable.. The only adjustment is left to right.. I would not recommend this gun at all. Unless it was for sheer safety to have for a last last last last resort of a shot... my 2 cents.

Read much?

To each their own, hopefully the gun just wasn't the right one for you and it will work out for him. I still say it's a great first gun, no reason to jump right up to the 1911's, and he'll be able to sell this one off at a gun show with the 4 mags for not much less than what he paid
