I agree! No gun is as ergonomicly perfect as the MP.

i'm looking at getting my own pistol before the month ends and until then have been at the mercy of our local ranges and have been either (1) renting from the field or (2) asking friends to let me shoot their pistols..
I have shot the XD and the Glock a couple of times and I am leaning more towards the Glock myself...I have only managed to hold the M&P but have not fired it yet but something just doesn't appeal to me regarding the feel of the grip/pistol in my hands..

I have only shot a M&P9c, the one I own, but did hold an XD and just did not like it. I love the M&P. Another thing that I liked about the M&P is that they are made right here in the USA.

I sold my Glock 38 and bought a Springfield XD 45 Compact with 5in barrel and never have regretted it. When using the 13 round mag, it is like having the service model, two guns in one. Another reason is the fit in my hand. I have an arthritic, first knuckle, on my trigger finger and with the Glock I can barely get a good finger set , where as I can get a good fit with the XD. I hope this makes sense ?

I think with all the divided comments You guys would make it tough for a person needing advice on which one to buy. With that being said I wish I had the money to own all three brands

The M&P would be the right choice.

I agree. There is no better pistol than the MP for the price.

I've got to vote for the Glock over the Regualr XD. If it were Glock vs. M&P vs. XDm, then I'd give it to the XDm. I think they look and feel alot better than the regular XD's. I think the M&P is just not up to par.

XD for me. S&W has never intrigued me.

Ok maybe it is me but I liked the feel of the glock and the xd. But I didnt care for the feel of the M&P. At first I had decided to get the XD because of all the stuff it came with for the price. Then I shot my cousin's baby glock "glock 27" two shots from 20 yards in the center of a paper plate. After that I was in love. I actually shot that better than my ruger p94 that I qualified for my concealed carry permit.
I havent bought anything yet as I was in a toss up still about the glock, the xd, and xdm. Well until I have heard of several people having problems with the pins in the xdm's.
Another thought I had is the looks and the function of the gun is a similar type than a glock. So if they are trying to add the features of a glock then why not buy a glock? Not only that I can not stand the safety on the back of the grip. I do kind of wish one of them had the decocker like on my ruger. Or ruger amde a subcompact .40 or .45.
But I am heading to my cousin's in a few to shoot hsi glock 27 and 23 and see how I like those compared to my ruger after putting several rounds though them.

Well right now I am leaning towards the .45 compact XD. I cant stand the feel of the grip on the XDm. It is either going to be that or the glock 30, though the grip is alittle big for my hand. I would rather get the single stack but I want a high compacity clip for when the gun is in the house.
The local gun guy told me today that M&P didnt make a .45 compact. I bought a smith and wessen magazine and they had the guns listed in the back with the specs. And they have one listed. Slightly bigger than the .357, .40, and 9mm. They are like a 6.71 and the .45 is a 7.1 something

Had that choice and after research and firing them...I bought the XD
02-17-2009, 06:39 PM
I like the XD I haven't had a single problem with it. It fit my hands perfect,functions well,and is very simple to break down and maintain.I like it so much I am ready to test the XD(M).

Seeing as how Gluck sued S&W because of patent infringments in the Sigma version pistols, and the M&P uses the same design, I would say that it is a "proven design" also. Only improved and better!

Not necessarily. If S&W uses only part of something Glock has a patent to, but no tthe whole thing they are only using a small portion of a design. Just because someone copies something that works and tries to do there own thing doesnt necessarily make for success.

I have never gotten a glock to jam, ftf, or fte. Within 50 rounds I had to ftf's withthe M&P. Yes that could have been that one gun but who knows. Until it has been completely proven I will not say it is new and improved. Though I will say that when it is working it is a good gun. I like the glocks better myself.
