M&P vs XD
i recently overheard the end of a conversation at a gun shop and it ended " that is why the M&P is better than an XD"
i wondered what he was talking about.
anybody have any input?
are the M&Ps selling well?
i just haven't heard much good or bad about the M&P
Could have been any reason, just like when people here say one gun is better than another. Both are good guns. Sounds like another case of a salesman pushing his personal preference on a customer.
As Todd said, both are good guns. I like the lower bore axis and interchangeable backstraps on the M&P, but the XD has a somewhat longer track record for reliability.
I'd be happy with either.

The rebates on the M&P's are what makes a lot of people choose them over the XD. Having shot both, they were very similar in terms of feel and performance. When S&W was giving buyers $50 AND a couple mags back, it sure was a good deal...now I think it's $30 OR two mags.
I've rented both. Neither are my favorite. But, I did just get an XD45. And, I prefer the XDs to M&Ps, personally.
Now, everyone knows that a P99 is the best
