    I'm happy to see that both the full-size and the compact models are covered by the contract.

    I have to say that from the 40-or-so rounds I put through an M&P9 Pro--good call. Sweet shooting gun!

    $40,000,000.00.

    Give me that much money to buy a gun, I'll buy an M&P and a Glock, and pocket the rest. Man that's a big contract.

    I am curious if anyone knows if any other guns were looked at? I only saw these 3 which are all good guns but was wondering how they decided on these 3?

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    Gov't bidding process. The ATF put out a request for proposal (RFP) for polymer guns in full size and compact models. Companies respond with a proposal of their offerings. The ATF evaluated all the proposals and everyone that met their requirements (phase 1) when on to the live fire testing (phase 2). Sig, S&W & Glock all passed phase 1 and went on to phase 2. Sig didn't make it through phase 2 so didn't continue on to phase 3. Apparently the ATF was equally satisfied with the S&W & Glock at the completion of phase 3 and awarded the contract to both.

    I own two M&Ps, and one Glock (G4). Not a thing wrong with either one, although I prefer the M&P for fit, finish, and ergonomics. It's good to see an American company doing well.
