    I had a M&P .40 not long after they came out. It was a nice gun and I really like it. I just didn't shoot is as well as several of my friends XD's so i sold the M&P with plans to buy an XD. Things happen and I never bought the XD.
    That said, I just bought my first 1911. You can find a nice 1911 for less than $800 especially if you're open to a used gun.

    Just my 2 cents

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    Since you are familiar with shooting Glocks, choosing another handgun with a striker type trigger system like the S&W M&P would keep things consistent between your guns.

    The M&P Pro 40 was announced last January at ShotShow 2010, but has only in recent months become available. Here is a dealer selling the gun for $609:

    Best deal that I know of for a standard M&P 40 with tritium night sights is $519 here:

    So you are only paying a $90 premium to get the better trigger sear that the Pro model has. Normally this costs $110 dollars plus shipping for S&W to install on a standard M&P for a gun shipped to the factory.

    Through Oct 3rd, Smith and Wesson is offering either a $50 rebate or two extra free high cap mags to anyone that buys any M&P handgun.

    Another option would be to buy the standard night sight M&P 40, and then install the Apex Tactical sear and striker block ( total cost $75 ). Some folks prefer it

    The M&P 40 is my favorite combat handgun. Here is it on the left next to my Beretta PX4:

    M&P = Love

    I own 2 M&P9 Pro's and will surely own the M&P40 Pro when it shows up locally.
