Had a hard time deciding between the S.A. XD or the S & W MP. Then what caliber? The 9mm, light, fast, efficient, economical. The 357 sig, plenty of power but expensive to shoot, unproven popularity & not out in S & W MP yet. The 40 caliber, fast, powerful & gaining popularity therefore not too expensive as a range or concealed carry piece.
Finally made a decision. My next pistol will be the S & W MP 40 caliber. Looking for best price now. 8) I know you XD fans disagree but I own 4 S & W's ( 5 if you count the PPK/S ) & like them all.
There are many great guns out there and I will own all of them as soon as I win the lottery!
