    I had Glocks, I switched to M&P's basically because they fit my short fat fingers better. But hey! Thats way Baskin Robbins has 32 flavors. I did notice one thing on the compact models though. If you have meaty palms they'll get in the way of the mag dropping free during tactical mag changes.

    I want a M&P9 Pro Series for competition.
    What's funny is after I commented on this post, I went and shot my G19 2nd gen and tested on a new G19 4th gen with my M&P9. The trigger is very comparable! If your eyes were closed you would be hard pressed to notice a difference in break and weight. Then I laugh because Hickok45 did an M&P review and he mentions that sweet trigger and that if feels lighter then his Glocks. That is coming from a well known Glock fan boy.

    By the way, I won't be getting the 4th Gen G19. Both the guys at my gun shop/range that bought the new 4th gens put 3rd gen springs on them after they had issues! LOL..... I will keep my old Glocks and my M&P's.

    Now all I need is an M&P 40 pro, I will have almost every caliber except .357 sig which is not part of my caliber standardization.

    Yes I actually was flabber-gasted when Hickok45 said that.^^

    I was thinking the same thing. He is a Glock fanboy but does like the M&P alot. I did hear him say something like this " Out of all the newer polymer framed guns, like the XD XDM etc. the M&P is the most Glock like (or was the Closest to the Glock)"

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

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

    Me too! Maybe that's why I think the M&P trigger is so good?

    I don't suppose that I wanted a Glock vs M&P thread to sprout out of my quick M&P 40 Pro Series review. But, in the interest of full disclosure, I am a former Glock owner. I can only say that I was never comfortable with the way Glocks fit my hand... Like many have said before, Glocks feel very blocky to a good number of shooters, and that is how it was for me. When I purchased my first M&P, I discovered what was for me a polymer pistol Nirvana. The M&P just fit me like a glove, and it showed in my shooting times and groups... Isn't that what we are all looking for with our self defense pistols?

    Well I just installed the Apex Sear and the Apex Reset Assist Mechanism (RAM) today.

    All I can say is, "Wow"! Aside from having the now familiar Apex trigger feel, I now have a real and distinct tactile reset of the trigger. I have been without an audible and tactile reset in my M&P's for so long, I suppose that I forgot that I missed it. The trigger reset was probably the only thing I regretted losing when I sold my Glocks so many years ago. Now that I have it back, I don't want to be without it again.

    This is the first of my M&P's to get the RAM upgrade, but it won't be the last.

    M&P Pro Series + Apex Sear + Apex RAM = The Perfect Modern Polymer Pistol!
