So, I took the wife and kids out to Cedar Ridge Range today so that we could each run in our new pistols. Ruger LCP for her and Smith & Wesson Sigma 40 for myself. The Smith & Wesson Sigma performed well, after adjusting to the longer trigger pull compared to my XD45. The S&W is a smaller pistol overall compared to the XD even with a 14rd magazine. There are a few things I would prefer to see on this firearm. The first being a firmer/thicker slide release. Another would be larger takedown tabs. Accuracy was great once I started to get used to the longer trigger pull that is similar to the Ruger LCP. There was never an issue with feeding during the 300 rounds using Remington Sureshot and PMC Bronze. The Ruger performed well for the size of the pistol and size of sights, not much more than milled bumps. My wife liked the size of the pistol due to her having such slight hands, ring finger only a size three.The size gave her the ability to handle the pistol a bit easier than her SIG P232. One thing neither of us liked was the weight and length of the triggerpull. As with the S&W there were never any issues with feeding any of the eight magazines.I did have one issue with the pistol after the 8th magazine. After that magazine i released and felt a stab in my palm. Upon inspection I noticed that 2 pins had shifted out of position and were sticking out a few mm on the left side of the frame. On eof the pins was the frontframe insert pin just in frony of the takedown pin. The other I believe was the hammer catch pin(the pin just behind the R on the grip). The pins went back in with some pressure. This made me worry because this will be what my wife will use/carry for her protection. I am going to be calling Ruger on Monday to talk to customer service to let them know about this issue. I will reply with what i hear from them.
