    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.

    I carry a Glock 22 while on duty. We have 23 officers that participate in training, everything from standard qualifying to stress shooting, shooting at running targets and combat situations. The gun never fails, the range ammo might, but the gun does not. I own a new Smith and Wesson M&P 9L and I love the gun! I can easily switch out the backstraps for my wife and son and she can handle the recoil. I also was introduced to the FNP 9by one of the Lts. that works with me and it also is a great gun and has interchangeable back straps. I would not want to make a choice, I guess that is why I have all three. My son owns an XD 9 and I feel as stongly about it as the other 3. Maybe I am easy to please or do not know what to look for in a "good" gun.

    I went with the XD9 subcompact, with the M&P a close second. The deciding factor was the grip safety. The XD will be carried by my wife as soon as she's trained up to standard, and I liked the idea of the extra safety.

    well i am pretty much of noob when it comes to handguns and i currently looking to get my first. I have shot all three of these in my search for my first gun. I must say it is going to be a very hard decision. I shot them all about the same but the M&P and XD seem to fit my hand the best. So i really stuck on which on to get and this thread has made it no easier, they all sound like great guns.

    I am going to gun show tomorrow and i guess my decision will be based on the best price i can get. But i think it will be between the M&P and the XD. the glock felt like a great shooting gun but just did not feel right in my hand. and it did not fit my girlfriends hand at all.

    decisions, decisions

    I hope it's cool that I voted. I'm really new to handguns. I've only got a S&W model 59. I've held the 3 and love the look and feel of the Glock best. Maybe I'm too new to get involved with the hype in one direction or another. In fact, I always thought I would hate a Glock just beacause it's the one you always hear about in rap music, and I tend to shy away from the "norm" or popular. I try to maintain some level of exclusivity in whatever I am buying, but in this case I think I'm going to be siding with the masses. I'll be buying a Glock in the next few days.

    Hold a M&P 40 in your hand and you will be impressed
