Smith & Wesson SD40 VE Review




What do you think about this video?

Victor Rivera: Thanks for the review... looking to purchase my first firearm and was leaning towards this, but since I'm a lefty, I'll keep looking for something a little more convenient for me.

hyperactivecalvino: Wow killer group, I suck at shooting this gun apparently.

cashvillesouthboy: Nice video I also own this same firearm and love it

swampthing401: These are great guns for the money everyone should own one
a couple of things though the first thing you should do is put the apex spring kit in it
it makes makes a huge difference the second thing is I would go with the 9 millimeter over the 40
the 40 is a high pressure cartridge and it does a lot of wear on the gun I have about 1500 rounds through my SD 40 ve and there are definitely tell tale signs of overpressure including wear in the chamber and the casings are starting to have a smile like glock does. Honestly I think the frame and slide are a bit weak to handle 40 just my opinion the only other 40 caliber I own is my Glock and that thing is a tank it has twice as many rounds and half as much where as my Smith. I will take a video and put it on my channel now so you guys can see the wear I'm talking about. But for your average shooter or a self defense gun it is a great choice and if you plan to put more than 1500 rounds through it I would go with something else personally

jeffrey allen: I have one and love it 

Tristayne Williams: Very detailed video good job


thxiv: Someone comes up the stairs in the middle of the night and you bump into them...shoot them 5 times at point blank range. Makes sense.

Joz Sig: So, I made a wise choice buying this pistol

John Dough: Thanks for posting this. I saved up and got a safe and I saved up to take a basic handgun safety course at my local range (I'm just waiting to attend) and I've now started looking around for my first gun. Today I went to my local gun store. I told the guy what I had to spend and my extreme beginner level and this gun is what he showed me. Although at this store they were charging $450. I am going to check out other stores, either way I'm waiting until I take that beginners class to commit to a purchase but thanks to your video I think I might get this gun for my first. If anyone has suggestions for a better starter gun please share. 

tyrian stallings: I've shot it and loved it gotta add to my loadout to go with my 9mm

Michael Robbins: Picked that gun up for 250$ today was a good day and a hipointn9mm brand new I know it's not the best but only paid 200


Anthony Arena: Nice shooting guys. Really like that pistol too.

CodytheMan08: Just bought one of these today as my first gun. Does it need to be cleaned before a first trip to the range?

Doug Roy: Just buy one and put it on you night stand

roy rivera: Just got mine a few days ago cant wait to test it this will help alot thx

GhoolerHunter: I just bought one.  Noticed the trigger right off just like you did.  Shoots hard, good stopping power.  I'm not as good with it as I am with our other guns but was told I just need to get used to it so I'll go with that for now.  Thanks for the video.

Joseph Blair: Yup, bought this gun today, prior to seeing this video, just based my buy on knowledge alone, and I think I made a good choice...great video.

Juan Rodriguez: Thanks I just got mine today.... your video help me a lot to decide which gun to get .... thanks again great video....

Paper Cut: This is a crap gun. Very hard to hit target with it

Richard Church: I carry the Sd40VE as my concealed weapon, and I can assure you that there is no rattle when you're moving around.
