    Sorry, I do not own (like) any of the three....
    I chose Ruger (SR40 & 40c) other then my SIG226/239 for .40S&W ammo.

    The Ruger fits and feels better in MY hands (your mileage may very )

    Lateck,

    Hey everyone ... That's for all of your replys!

    As of now, I'm leaning towards either the Glock or Smith & Wesson. But now I'd like to include the compact versions of both of them ... Anybody got any feed back on either the Glock 23 or Smith & Wesson M&P 40c

    Did you mean the Glock 27? If you meant the medium sized Glock 23 then the M&P .40c will be a more compact gun. For me the M&P .40c is easier to shoot especially over longer periods of time compared to the Glock 23 and 27 I owned. For me alot of it come down to mainly how it felt in my hands compared to the Glock. Then I shot it and was way more accurate with it. Then I thought you know this looks alot better than the Glock. And though it isnt but marginally at best difference but for me I have a slightly easier time taking the M&P apart not that the Glock was that hard.

    Then there is always if you are one of those people that likes safeties. You can get the magazine disconnect and the actual flip safety on the outside of the gun along with the trigger safety. I will say I like the older Glocks better than the new ones with that awful grip on them.

    Had a G23. Traded it in on a XD .40 SC...just feels better. But either is a fined tuned Beast. Felt better with the grip safety also.

    I think the xd felt better than the glock even with the grip safety. I however don't prefer the grip safeties. Are they bad...um no. I don't know what it is but sometimes I couldn't tell the safety was there the next it just had a slight awkward feel. Maybe it takes more than 300 rounds to get used to it or something

    I really do not think you will go wrong with any of the ones mentioned.
    Go with the one that fits you and feels good and be happy.

    You aren't the first person I have heard of to have problems out of their Glock. I know their track record is outstanding as far as reliable. I would be very hesitant in buying a new one. Now if my cousin was to sell one of his I would probably buy it because I know one had a FTE (due to crappy reloads) but other than G17 the rest they have been flawless.

    The one I like the most is the Steyr S40, no others fit my hand better.

    I laughed. Must be nice to have one that would actually shoot instead of messing up all the time.

    None of the above. My choice for the 40 S&W is either my SIG 229 or my Ruger SR40c. But of the three I'd choose the S&W. I personally don't care for the other two, nothing wrong with them mind you, just not my cup of tea.

    I already own a Sig P229 .40 s&w ... and I love it.

    I was just looking to purchase another .40 ...

    I think I'm leaning towards the S&W MP40 but before buying it, I wanna look at the Sig P250C .40 too.

    Any choice words about the Sig P250C?

    I really have little use for the 40 because of it's snappiness and obnoxious blast,you won't have muffs on when you need it.

    Of the 3 you picked I'd have to check out a Smith.I've shot the Glock and handled an XD.Neither feel good to me but the gripsafety on the XD cures one of Glock's big flaws.If the Smith has a safety I would try it no problem.You couldn't give me a Glock,my 1911s are way safer than the 'safe action'.

    If plastic was going to be had,my first choice is HK until the PPQ is proven.If I can save a little more to have a proven quality design,I can't justify saving money for good enough when my life or family's may depend on it.You get what you pay for,it works with guns too with the exception of Kimber.

    Okay ... so my latest thoughts now no longer include the Springfield or Glock. For that matter ... I've even dropped thinking about a Sig 250c (just not sure I'll like the DAO). Now I'm thinking about a used Sig P226 vs a new M&P 40. My collection as of now is made up of 4 Sigs (P220, 229, 238 & 239 all were new when I bought them). So should I just continue along that road and buy another one or try something different? What do you guys think ...

    Well, I just found(after searching for a long time) a Beretta 96 inox w/ all stainless controls...but that's because I love Beretta's.....sounds to me like you are used to shooting Sigs.....I wouldn't mind a 226 myself.......I like the SAS models........sure are nice looking guns......
