    Either one would do.

    Both are good prospects as I have many Taurus brand and I have carried a Sigma .40 when they first came out. I just went away from double stack carry for ease of concealment in any weather. Kinda hard to hide a double stack with just a t-shirt to cover it.

    No more Taurus for me. I have owned four or so and three have needed warranty work. And granted two of the three were fixed okay (I ordered parts three years ago and still haven't seen them). I have owned a lot of S&W (both autos and revolvers) and none have needed major repairs yet. I would recommend going with a Ruger if a S&W is out of your price range. They're heavy tanks, but are reliable and built to last.

    If you're looking for an inexpensive .40, I would look into the CZ 40P

    I would skip both choices. The Sigma is not a good gun. Most people I know who buy them end up wanting something else to replace them. There's a reason they are priced where they are. And Taurus has a real problem with poor Quality Control.

    From my point of view, it's worth it to add the extra money and get something better than the two options listed.

    Personally I would pick up a well used Glock 19 or 23 over either of your choices. There have been many used Glock's for $325-350 lately.

    Go with the taurus if its between the two. I have a 24/7 and its a great gun. But if you have choices get a CZ. I just got a CZ p07 and love it.
