I vote SD9VE.

I had a later generation SW9VE and I liked it very much. My trigger was long (it was, after all, a Sigma) but pretty smooth, it never hiccuped with anything I fed it, and I thought it was more comfortable in my hand than a gen3 Glock.

When gen4 Glocks came out, and I held one, the grip was just smaller enough to win me over. Passed the Sigma on to a friend for a good price...kinda regret it.

So, anyways, the SD9VE bears resemblance to the SW9VE in many ways, but I could see instantly the various improvements made to it that S&W implemented based on feedback. I have no doubt that the SD9VE is a fine firearm for the money, and S&W learned a thing or two from the Sigma issues.

The Aug-Sept issue of handguns magazine has an excellent article on the Tristar P 120 pistol. Nice gun with a nice price.

SD9VE. It's a great gun for the money and mine has been absolutely flawless other than it's a bit slick in my hand.
The anti-gun lobby reminds me of that show "Ghost Hunters". They turn off all the lights, shut out the outside world and then proceed to scare themselves silly.
