    I have only $450 to spend. Which is better performance wise.. both accuracy and reliability?

    Both are decent guns as far as reliability goes. The Sigma's are better now than they were when they came out. The Taurus guns, while I've talked to many who own them and swear by them, seem to be kind of hit or miss. You may get a great gun, you may get a lemon. You never know until you go shoot.

    As far as accuracy goes, the trigger on the Taurus is smoother than the Sigma, IMHO, and tends to be a bit easier to shoot. Just realize that neither of these guns are target guns. They are defense guns through and through.

    Personally, I'd go with the Sigma, because right now, S&W has a consumer rebate of either $50 or two free mags.

    I'd go with the sigma, but thats cause I only really have personal experience with my sigma. Its been a great gun, no problems whatsoever. As for accuracy, out of the box when I first got it, the trigger was so difficult that i would shoot maybe a foot or so below the target! but after i got used to the trigger and fired off maybe 150 rounds, i could get sub 3" groups at 10 yards. (You can also "fix" the trigger to make it lighter and easier if you want for nothing. you can find another thread on how) Another plus is that you can prob get the sigma for $250 after the rebate and spend the other $200 for ammo and a holster. But I'm sure you cant go wrong with either.

    I posted on this a few days ago. I don't know if you read that thread so I will just copy my post.

    I don't know what you can get the Sigma for I'm thinking ($299) but honestly if I had $450 to spend I would probably go with the 24/7. IMO the SA/DA trigger, and better sights would definitely make it worth $50-$75 more to me and I do like my Sigma.

    I have no clue where you guys get these cheap Sigmas from. Where i'm at most of the SW40VE are around $379, while the Taurus 24/7 pro .40SW is around $399. My god if I could a Sigma for $250 or $299 I'd snatch it in a heartbeat.

    Budsgunshop.com typically sells the Sigma 9mm or 40 S&W for $299.00 with free shipping. If you do not live in KY, there is no tax, just your FFL fee. With the $50.00 rebate that's $250.00 for a new pistol with two mags. You could opt for the extra two mags and skip the $50.00 rebate too.

    I don't know how much they were before but when I linked the 24/7 to Bud's the Sigma's were about the same price as the 24/7($358 Sigma vs $363 24/7 shipped). You can still subtract the $50 mail in rebate but that does take a few months to get back as well as the two extra magazines. If I was in the market I would probably jump on one of those 24/7's. My FFL charges $15 for transfers but even if they charged double that you would still be in it for less than local when you add sales tax.

    $299 @academy. I doesn't say anything about the rebate but I would call and see.

    If you're thinking of the 24/7, make sure you get the DS version that has a decocker. They are selling these 24/7's for only $348 locally.

    Academy Sports has the Sigma 9mm or .40 cal. for $299. this week and the S&W rebate is still on. I'd buy the Sigma and spend the rest on ammo. I do have a Sigma 9mm and never had a problem. Not on my sell or trade list.

    The Taurus will be easier to conceal!

    I own a sigma and have owned tauuri and got great service from em all. BUT all the horror stories about Taurus'es customer service or complete lack therof always weighed heavily in the back of my mind.
