      The M&P seems to getting adopted by a few law enforcement agencies. Time will tell. I'm interested in trying a 9mm version when it comes out. Maybe I can rent one eventually.

      OK heres my take on it and its somewhat biased. I was kind of just in the same boat you are in. The two pistols I was looking at next were the XD45 and the MP. All my pistols were 9mm and a few .22lr but I wanted a .40SW or .45ACP. I chose the XD45 and not becuase it was "bigger" than the MP .40SW but becuase I already had a damn similar pistol to the MP. My favorite guns and my carry guns are Walther P99 and P99compact all in the AS configuration which are DA/SA in 9mm. I love the guns they have been perfect and the DA/SA trigger os really cool. If you ahvent noticed the new MP has most of the same features the P99 has. So if I were to get a gun like the MP in .40 I would get the proven P99 in .40 . I have no doubt that the MP is or is going to be a great pistol but IMO the P99 is better(hence the reason S&W quit importing the Walther P99's in AS(DA/SA) configuration. Why bring in the direct competition? It would be stupid. BTW S&W imported 90+% of all the P99 AS's.).

      On to the XD45- I love this pistol. The accuracy out of the box was suprising to me as this was my first XD. I hadnt even shot any XD before this. I absolutely am in love with this trigger. It fits the application well. It eats anything. Ive fired close to 1000 rounds of Wolf through it and havent had the slightest problem. At this time it is my nightstand gun. Attached to it is a Streamlight M6 with Corbon +P's . When the winter comes back around Ill carry it some.

      I just like the looks, feel, finish, and craftsmanship of my XD .45ACP,
      better than that of the current M&P from Smith & Wesson.

      I don't think I could ever purchase a S&W pistol again. I had bad luck with their pistol line. The 457 and sigma series seemed to let every one down in reliability and performance. They make a great revolver but I just don't trust their pistol line

      Well, I have 1 S&W gun - a SW99 - And I love it. BUt, while I liked the M&P in photos, after holding one and dry firing it, it doesn't do it for me. I like the XD better.

      I only have one question.
      When has S&W ever made a semi-auto. pistol with a real good trigger pull?
      Their revolvers have fine trigger pulls.....but their semi's.......
      my answer is never!

      I do not think the M&P is an exception.

      Go with the XD.

      Based on the 4 that I have that have nice triggers, I guess I should say they have done it at least 4 times. Since I have shot many others that have nice triggers, I know that the four that I have aren't flukes.

      The one I have, also has a decent trigger pull..but that was thanks to an extra expense and a good "smith".
      My experience with S&W semi-autos out of the box is that their trigger pulls are long, crunchy and do not break cleanly.
      My idea of an excellent trigger pull (right out of the box--just the way it left the factory) would be Sigs and H&K's.
      It has always amazed me that Smith & Wesson can make such excellent trigger pulls in their revolvers and so poor trigger pulls in the semi's.
