    XD All the way. The grip angle is much better than glock. I like being able feel if the gun has one in the pipe and if the gun is cocked or not. XD is much safer than any gun on the market.

    You can tell if a round is chambered on any GLOCK as well by feeling the extractor w/ your trigger finger, especially since GLOCK introduced the extractor w/ the more obvious LCI (loaded chamber indicator).

    Also, the GLOCK is always (at least partially) "cocked".

    MP lover!!!!!

    The S & W, MP's have only been available a little over a year now (Dec. 2005). The 40 caliber was out 1st, then the 9mm came out some time last summer with the 357sig trailing just behind it. Then just a few months ago S & W came out with the compact in 9mm with the 40 caliber compact just now hitting the market. The full sized 45 caliber is due out next month and the compact sometime thereafter.
    The other choices have been out considerably longer, the Glock being the 1st high production polymer in the late eighties. Then the XD's hit the market (under the XD name) sometime in the early nineties.
    Sorry I didn't take time to research exact dates. Most of you probably know more about the actual origin dates of your favorite gun. My point is, the MP's have only been available a fraction of the time of the others but are gaining a strong fan base very quickly.
    I have two MP's, a fullsized 40 caliber and a 9mm compact and will be buying the 45 caliber asap. They are all good guns but I love my MP's!!!!

    Can the M&P and Walther compacts(Walther needs mention) use the larger magazine of their larger counter parts. If the XD; Walther: M&P; Glock compacts are all able to use their large counter parts magazine, it'll be down to price as a decision for a compact 9mm for me.(or my sister)
    Which one do y'all think.

    Yes, they can all use the mags of their larger counterparts. My wife and I chose the M&P9c for her because it matches my full-sized and that's the 1 that she liked the best out of all of them.

    I voted glock on the simple fact that it fit my hand better then the other two. + it was the gun I qualified with so I have a better understanding with it then the other two.

    i don't know about you, but i think if you're carrying a weapon, you should know if its "got one in the pipe".
    if you don't know the status of your own weapon, maybe you shouldn't be carrying one.

    I am an XD owner and have to agree. Just speaking for myself. The loaded chamber indicator on my XD does not mean much to me. I have carried so many guns that do not have this feature that round in pipe or not is something I know without using an indicator. Don't even need it in the dark. If I have picked up my XD for use...then that means it has one in the chamber.

    Did I just agree with a Glock person? Must have got carried away. Of course I want to add that XD's are by far the better gun.

    Strike that last statement. Just remembered I have plans to buy a G36.

    glock makes one heck fo a gun, and as for the xd, it's a good gun too.
    i just prefer the glock.

    let me know what you think about the G36.

    never carry a firearm unless you have one "in the pipe"

    and if anything should go down, don't stop and look at the little indicator to see if you have one loaded.

    and madmag, you agreed with me because you are smart enough to know that the loaded chamber indicator is useless, it has nothing to do with which gun is better. good to know some one else out there has a little sense.

    I am no expert on pistols by any means, but I have an M&P .40. I love it, fits real nice, comes with adjustable backstrap(or grip). It is now the most comfortable gun I have held for my long fingers. Shoots real nice, great trigger(I think), looks cool too. I also like the consistency of the double action, vs. the hard first pull of some others. I am sure glock is a great gun, but it didn't feel right in my hand.

    I voted M&P , I have a XD45 and have had Glocks,but the S&W is my favorite.
    I carry a Springfield EMP for CCW most of the time, but I can carry the M&P . I will get a IWB holster for it soon.

    I have an XD40 Tactical, had an XD9 Service and now have an M&P9. My buddies have Glock's which I have fired enough to know how they feel.

    The XD40 has operated flawlessly for around 4000 rnds. The XD9 constantly failed to eject so got rid of it at 1000 rnds and replaced with the M&P9.

    My hand prefers the M&P and it has operated flawlessly for 2000 + rnds.

    Conclusion is that I prefer the M&P and will probably own an M&P 40 in the near future.

    Enjoy

    I say Springfiled XD. I like the trigger and sights better on it than the Glock. Never shot an M&P.

    I have also tried all the pistols mentioned by renting them at the range. I have to put another plus in the Glock column. Fits me better than all the others, and I have sold off all others pistols except my Glock 19. Also, when you can field strip a gun down to only 4 pieces, and the easiest thing to clean I have ever seen.....that is enough reason right there.

    I don't know for certain but believe a corner of the extractor was "MISSING". It looked like someone got carried away when de-burring the extractor. There were a number of other comparable complaints on the web at that time also. I had purchased from an FFL that obtains his guns from Davidson. Davidson has a replace defective with new gun policy. They were unable to obtain an OD color equivalent in a reasonable time so I requested a swap for the M&P. They complied and I have been quite pleased with that decision. I should point out however that the M&P barrel is in question as of this week. The chamber has some chips/flakes coming off it's interior surface. I am awaiting a shipping lable from S&W.

    Hey Spacedoggy! Glad to see you got a MP. I've got rwo, the fullsized 40 and a MP 9mm compact. Love em! Still pondering over a MP 45 in DEB but ammo is expensive.
    You will like your MP. S & W will fix any problems you may have. In case you don't already know, here is a link to the MP Forum; http://mp-pistol.com/boards/portal.php. I hang out there a lot. I recently bought a S & W 442 for warm weather wear but my MP's will be with me most of the time, weather permiting.
    Still haven't made any progress in our move to East Texas, but someday, I hope!
