      I prefer the Glock for the low bore axis and short/firm trigger reset. Both make fast shooting easier. Also, accessories are much more widely available for Glocks than any of the other guns. The XD is gaining in this regard, though.

      I agree 100%. I owned a Glock 19 for 5+ years. Never had any problems with it and I used it as my IDPA comp gun and even my IPSC comp gun for 3+ years. I eventually traded it for the Glock 23. Now that ammo prices are up I wish that I had the 19 back.

      you gotta remember that these polls are more of a popularity contest and "what do you own?" than "whats the best?".

      Glock has the most market share so it wins...followed by XD...

      having said that,i cant knock a Glock 19(or 17 for that matter),im a fan.

      ...but i would go with the M&P-9 personally.

      i have no experience with the XD other than holding them.

      True, but I'd like to think that most of us own the guns we consider the best.

      true,but many will vote despite limited or no experience with all of the options.

      for example,i voted without having shot the XD...or even touched the SR9.

      My "personal" choice is,was the XD. I have shot the M&P, Glock, and XD. The M&P didn't light my fire. Very well made relatively accurate example of S&W quality. If you like the feel of an M&P, you should be quite happy with one. The Glock was the fastest shot to shot of the 3 brands. You can really burn the powder with one. I would love to be carrying one right now. But, I have the worlds shortest index fingers. I'm not small mind you, 5'10" and 190 lbs, but mother nature had fun with my hands. That led me to the XD. So far I am very pleased with it. It shoots what I have put through it well. Scott Springer will likely get to play with it this winter. Not because it really needs anything, I just like to modify stuff because I can. I am going to order another XD next week. A 5" 9mm that too will be "Springerized". The Glock is a great weapon. If you have normal size hands, go for it. You won't be sorry. To me the M&P has nothing over the XD and Glock. The Ruger isn't in the running. I don't consider it in the same class as the other 3. I shot 3 stages with one, and that was enough. My Ruger revolvers have always been top notch. My favorite revolver in fact. They need to get the cheap feel out of their SR9, if they are going to run with Glock,S&W, and XD.

      No, not yet. I have a bad habit of agonizing over expensive purchases. I'm pretty sure though that I will end up with the Glock 19.

      I give a vote for the underdog M&P with 3 different backstraps. I dont like the grip angle on Glocks. I almost have to bend wrist downward to line up the sights and can shoot tighter groups with an MP than with the XD. SR9's have that recall issue. Ive read that many shooters had theirs fire on full auto at the range. Wonder if Ruger is covering that up by saying "if you drop the gun it will fire" instead of the auto issue...M&P, Glock, and XD are all fine guns. They all say "bang" when squeezed over and over. Get the gun that fits you. You should also take a look at the new XD-M

      Not familiar with the SR9 however I would recommend all three left, the XD, Glock, and M&P I swear by S&W but I also swear by glock, I've had problems as of late with my XD-40 though, my first XD and it's been problematic, I think I'll stay away from XD's, that's my personal opinion/experience with these firearms to help you make your decision.
