    I think that's a fair deal, make mine an M&P.

    If you can rent them, try them both. They are are both fine firearms, but you may prefer one or the other or be more accurate with one or the other.

    Handle them both, see which feels and aims more naturally. Both are highly reliable, have good reps and CS. Something between the two will make you decide for yourself.

    Personally, if all you get is $200-300, I'd consider hanging on to the S&W and saving up the difference. I just hate to get rid of any gun that's shootable. Call it hoarding.

    +1. That too. I've never sold nor traded a gun.

    I'm not a huge fan of the way the Sigma shoots...gota aim a little to the right to hit the bullseye...the only reason i bought it was because my brother said it was "awesome"...just feel like i might be better suited with an M&P or the heavilly favorite Glock...and I only had to pay $250 for it New

    I don't have trigger time on the M&P or the G22, however I have extensive time with the Glocks two younger siblings the G23, G27. Both are great weapons, the Glock line is proven over and over again, and the M&P looks like it's giving Glock a run for its money in the LE contracts department. I've heard a lot of agencies are picking them up for their officers. I would personally pick the Glock 23 over the 22 because of the size and that I can easily conceal it, but the G22 is a great weapon as well. Go to the range and handle them both and see what you come up with.

    Go for it. Glock gets my vote before the M&P, but the M&P has a following also.

    Why is the dealer offering so much? I just find it hard to believe that someone is offering 300 for a used gun that you yourself bought new for $250.

    Either way, its a solid upgrade. G22 if its a nightstand gun, G23 if you plan to conceal it.

    That is not a fair question to ask on a Glock oriented forum. I personally would go with the M&P of the two choices given. Otherwise I would look at the Springfield XD or XDM series and or the new Ruger SR40 which really seems to be getting nice reviews.
