    I love my M&P .40c and M&P .40 FS! Choose the caliber you want!! Some like 9, some like 40, some like 45, all are sufficient!! Choose the one you feel fits you and your situation best! My 13 year old son shot my M&P 40c this weekend and at 10 feet hit all 11 shots in a plate sized target. He has also shot my Beretta 92 Centurion 9mm and he would much rather shoot one of my 2 40s!

    Whoever said the SD's have a heavier trigger pull than the sigmas is WRONG. Good article here on M&P vs SD...Smith & Wesson SD40 Semi-Auto Pistol
    Interestingly the SD's are thinner and lighter than the M&P's.

    Really, the Sigma, SD, and M&P are all great guns. It just depends on if you like the look of them. I've been thinking about adding the SD to my rotation of guns since I like the look and I already own a M&P and Sigma.

    Good eye. I had unloaded it and put an empty mag in it for the picture. Racked it to make sure it was empty, and holstered it. Thanks!

    I love my m&p9c, it's my edc. I am a huge fan of the entire m&p line and would love to own one of each caliber and size some day. As for right now, I know I want a full size 9mm. I would love to get my hands on an SD around here (northwest ohio) and try it out. I am familiar with the grip of the m&p full size but have never handled the SD. The look of the SD is originally what pulled me in so no problems there.

    As far as Sigma pistol goes, the model 915 would be a favorite of mine. Cheap, good shooter, and 'decent' trigger pull.

    I'd vote for m&p over sd.

    Like others said regarding 9 vs 40, mostly preference. Try before you buy, if possible. Both are fine. The m&p 40c is a soft shooter (for a 40c), imho.

    I'm confused. Other than being S&W's, Sigmas and 3rd Gen's like the 915 have almost nothing in common.

    I vote for an M&P over SD also, I love my M&P9 Pro 4.25". I also love 3rd Gen Smiths like my 4003.

    The debate is neither here nor there about sigma's.. it was simply brought up during conversation in relation to the trigger of a sigma and the trigger of the SD's.

    The discussion in is m&p line $100+ better than the SD line. If so, why?

    Since we are on the topic of M&P's...I was trying to find old threads about this, but wasn't having any luck:
    I am looking at the 4.25 length M&P9 or Pro Series
    Other than the lighter trigger on the Pro Series, is there any really compelling reason to go w/the Pro series? I have only shot/carried Glocks and Kahrs w/standard triggers, and never found the need to change anything. Maybe shooting the lighter trigger would change my mind for me, but since I carry everything I own, I want something that is safe for EDC.
    There's a very good chance I would opt for Tritium sights over the Fiber Optics that come on the Pro Series, so that's definietly not something drawing me to the Pro Series.

    The 4.25" Pro has Tritium sights on it instead of the fiber optic. I went with it because the night sights and better trigger were more than worth the $80 difference I paid over a standard M&P to me.

    Thanks for pointing that out! I was looking at specs for the 5" which comes w/Novak Fiber Optics. I think if I can find the Pro locally I will definitely go that way.
