We've talked quite a bit about this on the podcast. The M&P trigger keeps coming up as an issue. I have no reservations about recommending the XD out of the choices presented.Shipwreck said:I thought I would want a M&P when I first read about them - but I tried the trigger on one at a shop recently, and I wasn't a real fan of it.
I've rented an XD 1 time and I was surprised, and I liked it.
I believe the M&P can be had with or without the magazine disconnect. I don't have a mag disonnect on any of personal CCWs, but my duty weapon does have one.Sssnake said:M&P is a nice design but 2 things make me pass on it.
One, ever since S&W started bowing to the gun regulators, they have lost my respect.
Two, I don't like magazine safeties. While it may never be a factor that effects me, I still would rather not have the risk. If the mag drops from my XD, I still have the ability to shoot the one in the chamber. Not with the civilian M&P (at least not the 3 I tried in the shops)
