    I don't have any striker fired pistols but reviews on the Walther PPQ lay it out as one of the top pistols out there, the trigger being the best. if i were buying a new handgun i'd definately check that one out.

    I'm a big Sig fan (I own 4 of them) and a P229 is one of them.

    But, I'm just looking for something else ...

    Sig will always be my #1 choice.

    The Glock 22 Gen 4 is one I own and have had no problems with. It has a Fulcrum Trigger in it which makes it very shootable. Yes on the last stage I forgot to load it. Senior moment.

    I bought a Glock 27. No misfires, no failure to feed, no ejection problems. It has been 100% perfect so far. I would expect the same from the bigger brothers.

    ....try to find a range that rents them and see which you feel fits you best, hopefully you will never need it but S&W has the best warranty of the two choices you give....lifetime 100%, they pay shipping both ways and customer service is excellent.

    If I had to choose a .40 it would be a Glock. I'm most familiar with the platform and have yet to have one fail me.

    M&P because they are accurate in my hands and I like the versatility they offer! Same reason the last poster picked Glock just a different platform for me.

    The Glock lets you swap out calibers. So you can have the .40 for protection and you can practice with the wiennie 9mm to save money.

    (I should probably apologize to all those 9mm shooters that I've insulted, but I don't think I will. Real men shoot .40s and .45s and .357s and bigger.)

    Glock 22. I'm a huge glock fan, the first handgun I shot was a glock 22 gen 3.

    Smith M&P, Why you ask? Because I've had both the G22 and 23 and the M&P is more accurate for me and I like the ergonomics better than Glock, I also had an XD in 40, and I like the M&P better than it too.

    Having spent the last month shopping I came down on the side of the XDm.
    I like the way the M&P fit in my hand very much, but haven't heard much about it and teh very smooth grip may have felt great but having had guns with smooth-ish grips I'm not a fan of them - repeated fast firing or sweaty hands and the gun starts moving around too much.
    The glock is great from all the reviews but the grip was very square in my hand and a but uncomfortable. The XD has a "pineapple grenade" grip and it's adjustable and the ergonomics is like a 1911, a gun I feel comfortable with.

    I also like the safety, or lack of one perhaps, on the XDm - it has the grip safety like a 1911 and the trigger one like a glock so it's grab and fire but also safe in the holster.

    I was looking mostly for a competition gun so went with 9mm as it's a bit cheaper to shoot, and went with the comp 5.25 model for the same reason. The 40 is the same gun, the 45 has a different frame (and a manual safety too)

    Now this is just my opinion but I having owned all 3 I will put my 2 cents in. First off I am a big fan of the M&P especially over the other 2. Of course I liked the XD better than the Glock.

    - M&P looks better than the xd or glock

    - I like the feel of the m&p grip compared to the xd or glock

    - I like the way the trigger looks and feels on the M&P. On the glock and xd it always had a weird feel with the safety like they were. Not the same with the M&P

    - I am definitely more accurate with the M&P than the other 2.

    - The M&P doesnt seem to be as wide as the xd or glocks which has a bit more blocky look on the slide.

    - Glock grip seems to be too bulky to hold comfortably (in my opinion)

    - When I shot my glock it seemed as if I had to adjust how I aimed to get decent accuracy with it (hard to explain)

    - on the xd I didnt like the grip safety. For someone not use to it I could tell it was there though everyone says you can't. And if you arent careful and dont press it in all the way it won't shoot. My wife had a big problem with that.

    - I felt as though I had a more secure hold on the M&P. Especially if for some reason my hand (from sweat, rain, whatever) or if the grip was wet as compared to the others.

    - While neither of the 3 were hard i am able to break the M&P down faster (field strip and completely) than the other 2.

    - S&W's warranty is better (hopefully you won't need a warranty in any of the 3)

    - lately it seems I am hearing more and more about Glocks running into problems. A gun that works at the local gun shop had a couple of FTF and a stove pipe on one straight out of the box with some Federal Premiums

    Like I said this is some of the reasons why I chose S&W. BTW I started out with a glock, sold it and bought a xd. After feeling the m&p I sold the xd and went with the M&P and never have been happier. Heck it is the best shooting handgun i have shot to date. Only one that remotely could keep up was my Ruger P94.

    Ultimately it is up to you. If you have any questions let me know. I hope you are happy with which ever you get.
