    I own an XD40, love it, but it took some tinkering to get the trigger to where I wanted. That said, it's very easy to find XD parts and accessories, so I'm not sure that's really a Glock 'advantage' anymore.

    I've put in a new guide rod, a magwell, thumbrest, trigger kit, trigger and sear springs, and nightsights. Helps that most SIG sites are compatible with XD. All were easy to install, and easy to get, with the exception of the sites which took the gunsmith FOREVER to get too...

    I've shot Glock and it's a fine pistiol, but it felt like junk in my hand. I blame my hand over the pistol, since that grip obviously works for a lot of folks. I've looked into an M&P compact, and I'm intrigued by them, but all of the reports of folks using them in competitions and having magazines fall out mid-fire has turned me off. I'm sure I'll get around to putting some lead downrange iwth an M&P someday, but for right now, I got a new 1911 to play with :-D

    i wonder of all the post given, the percentage of people that have put in there hand al 3 of the pistols listed and shot with them as well, because i can tell you that before i handled the m&p ,i owned the other 2,and i was already dogging the m&p out ,untill one day when i was the gun store, and the fellow put a m&p 45 in my hand i was sold, i mean the ergonomics ,comfort ,and feel of the pistol is second to none, just my opinion ,but smith & wesson got it right on this one, and to tell you the truth before my m&p pistols, i 've never owned a smith &wesson...i always thought they were to high on price, but go figure...
    agreed...

    as mentioned ive never fired the XD but i have held/foundled them on several occasions...shot Glocks for many years...

    when i decided to get a new pistol it came down to the M&P,XD,and another Glock....the feel/ergo's of the M&P are far better than either imo.

    the M&P pistol is the only S&W i own and its the only one i have any interest in owning...but its one of my favorite guns ive ever owned.if i ever buy another polymer/striker it would be another M&P(of those available today anyway).

    Check this one out. The MP 9 Pro will be my next range pistol.

    I've got a Glock 27 and a M&P9c. I love them both. If I had to pick one it would be the Glock. For me it's better for CCW...slightly more compact, slightly lighter weight. The M&P is more ergonomic to hold but is no more comfortable to fire than the Glock. Virtually the same recoil and accuracy for both. I've never fired a XD so I can't comment except that I'm not a fan of the grip safety.

    I fired the G17, G19, and M&P prior to making my first handgun purchase. About 50 rounds in each. I know that's not a lot, but its better than buying just on word of mouth. I bought the G19. Have now fired several hundred rounds through it and believe its the best choice for me. Of course my Sunday School teacher who owns a Sig, has a different opinion.

    None of the above, having personally selling off 2 XD's, they are great guns for their price ranges, but I think that it's worth the extra 200.00 or 300.00 more for an H&K or a Sig, all three of the guns in the poll are all under 500.00 dollar guns and are all reliable, although I like the XD best of these choices, but once you start driving a mercedes, one can't go back to driving a toyota...

    Except of the Mercedes gives you a rash with the leather seats in the heat.

    Example: my HK P30 is a fine gun, I love it. However, the grip is abrasive and in the FL summer I do not wear 2 shirts (one between the gun and my skin). So I got a G19. Reasonably priced, reliable, best corrosion resistance on the market, good trigger that is easy to use and get quick followup shots.

    Can't ask for more.

    I am strongly considering the M&P9 next. Was looking at the long slide and stumbled onto the pro. Is there any differences in the two other than the sights and slightly different machining on the muzzle end of the slide? I read it has a lighter trigger also but any difference in anything else?

    That's about it. I really like mine. The trigger was a little rough at 1st but with some range time, some proper lube and and good bit of dry firing it has smoothed up considerably. Nice trigger for a factory job. The sights do make a big difference. Longer space between the front & back helps a lot and I like the fiber optic front sight. The balance is different from my MP 9c and my FS MP 40 when dry firing but evens out when loaded. All my MP's are very accurate. Check out the MP forum at http://mp-pistol.com/boards/index.ph...ol.com/boards/ for more info. I highly recommend a MP 9 Pro.

    could it be possible that this thread is consistent with this thread below:
    pick 2

    I say that because a lot of posts on this thread do talk of the 45

    It's glock for me.I use to be real partial to my sw99 but it's in 45acp
    and I like 9mm for carry.The trigger on this pistol is awesome but a bit towards hair for carry.

    Well now,let me see. I own a Glock 19,a M&P9c, and a XD40 sc. I have shot 1911's since my Army years of 65-68 and own a half dozen of those babies. So,when trying to pick just one for the vote,it was a very hard choice,unlike some who instantly stated which one they voted for and included dislikes of the other choices.Actually,I tried very hard to find faults with any of the pistols and I really can not in all honesty.In fact,I went back to the basics and tried to pick the one that felt best in my hand.I did not do this simply by taking a few minutes to handle each one and then picking,no,I actually took a whole month to make that decision.I went to the safe each day and grab a pistol and held it.What I found is that each had its own but yet,unique and comfortable grip of which melted into my hands.At the range,they all felt good in the hand and pointed naturally for me.The human hand and arms can adapt quite well to different weapons,so I was able to pull off some great shooting.They all prove reliable to me in any case with any brand of ammo.I love them all but I chose Glock. Why? Because the Glock 19 is my little petite wife's pistol and I want one now.Actually, I have to go with the capacity on this one.It conceals very well and 16 rounds should be taken seriously.The Glock has a proven track record over time.It is simple,has less moving parts and the parts are available everywhere.
    I know an argument can be made against the Glock in the fact that one can not safely handload for the pistol since the cases are not fully supported.I considered this as well.I have a whole room in the house that is fully taken up with reloading equipment and I really don't care to load for yet another caliber and I am not sure I would even want to for a self defence weapon and I have been handloading going on fourty years.
    Now,just because I voted for the Glock, you would not want to lay them all out in front of me and tell me that I would have to get rid of all the other ones. no sir! Not if you don't want to see an old guy cry.

    I voted for Glock, when I was looking around it was the only one that I really felt comfortable holding and was happy with all the results when I fire it. As you can see in my sig, that was with my first night at the range, where I didn't have any sighting problems and very accurate. Even shooting offhand around the side of the "Saloon" wall at our local range I was still accurate.

    I am going to get one of the 1911's one of these days, and will add it to my collection. Its always been another favorite of mine.

    Lighter trigger, "factory smoothed", so it should be a bit better. It also has virtually NO over travel, and a tad shorter reset, both for fast shooting USPSA style. The front of the slide is HEAVIER in the Pro (target shooting), and a bit less re-holster friendly (target shooting). The Pro is almost an once heavier.

    Interestingly enough I've done a full 180 in my handgun choices as of late...was an XD fanboy, then tried Glock. Now I have a G19 and would like a 20/29 and possible a 36. XD's aren't doing much for me right now...but I wouldn't mind a Tac 9.

    For .45 I wouldn't mind a 4" M&P45. For some reason I can't shoot the 9/40 worth a damn, but the .45's are amazing. It's a tack driver for me, so I'll probably pick up one of those as well. I know when I bought my XD the M&P was near the bottom of my list.

    For me the M&P 9mm I have just purchased. I also have the XD Tactical 9mm and the glock 22 40 S&W which I have owned since 1994. Here is the story. Glock shoots very accurate also the XD but the one that I shoot a tighter group is the M&P and here is why I have very short fingers and I can't even reach the mag release on my XD for quick mag changes. Glock grip is way too big. On the M&P I was at my local gun shop and they gave me the M&P 45 and my thumb could reach the mag release without any problem. WoW! Quick mag change in IDPA & USPSA competition. But all are good just get what fits. Oh the XD-M would solve my problem but it will not pass California DOJ so Springfield is going to loose a lot sells out here.
