Over the past year I started out with a full size PX4 Storm 9mm, went to a PX4 SC and now have the M&P C 9mm. Of the three, I like the M&P best. The Beretta's were fine guns, but the S&W just feels better in the hand, fits better and shoots great. And, as someone else has said, has the 12 and 17 rd. mags to go with it. How can you lose?
