    If you are planning for big value and expansion even if you are targeting usa, i suggest to go with .com. .us will helpful for local search from google search engine than .com, but that effect will be very nominal. And if i talk about customer psychology, still they think .com is better than .us. Still there are some advantages of .us as per business or purpose of website. But if you want to show them you guys are giant or broad go with .com.

    I recommend you to use .com domain extension to target US traffic as going natural is the best way and people try to search more by .com extension.
