I own all 3 of those pistols.
You can't go wrong with an M&P.
I have been shooting Glocks for a long time, but wanted to check them out so got a M&P 9 full size.
I was so impressed I later went out and got the M&P 9c.
I am going to ring them out a couple more times at the range and if all still goes well, get some holsters.
Who knows, they might put my glocks on the bench...........
its not how the gun feels in your hand, but how it shoots.....and the reason I still carry my Glock 19 as my EDC (have several M&P's including the 9C).
This gentleman brings out the full potential of Glocks and why he chooses them over every other pistol for carry:

Kimbers are the guns you show your friends....Glocks are the ones you show your enemies.
Personally I feel all things considered, both the Glock and the M&P are pretty much on a level playing field. I've shot Glocks for over a dozen years. I've only had my M&P a couple of weeks, but already it is quickly taking over any affinity I may have had for my Glock.
It comes down to personal preference, but whether you go with Glock or M&P you're not going to go wrong.
Right now, Glock is having some issues, which is why I went with the M&P 9 full size over the Gen 4 G-19. But I have no doubt Glock will get things worked out, and I doubt that have bought my last Glock either. I do know, that I will without a doubt end up getting a M&P 9c to go along with my full size later on down the road.
M&P had a few growing pains early on, but right now, they are running top notch and at the top of their game. I'd venture to say that present incarnations of M&P are every bit as reliable as Glock was before they started having their present day reliability issues.

Both Glocks and M&P's are great guns. Glock's are an old school plastic pistol and M&P's are the future of plastic pistols. I've shot and handled quite a few Glocks but they never felt "right" for me. The first time I held and shot an M&P9 it was like the first time I held and shot a Sig P226, they were made for me. YMMV
Choose between G19 and MP? Do I even have to say get both?.....
with the current state of Glock,i'd grab the M&P.it's by far the better choice at this time..
Given the current state of Glock and having owned an M&P with the DCEAK and RAM kit for some 5 years or so, I just had to have a G22 gen 4 and G17 Gen 4. So I got them and have no regrets. Probably gonna be upgrading my other gen 3s to gen 4s. I like everything about a Glock better than the M&P. I must be the only person in the world that doesn't like the feel of a M&P grip.
I like the Gen 4s a lot better than the gen 3s.
I'm too young to be this old!
Getting old isn't good for you!
M&p. Even if they are close as far as which you like better s&w is American made! Nuff' said!
I haven't given the Gen 4s much consideration, however, I am thinking about getting my first Gen 4 soon. (The Gen 4 G32 is finally out). Buying a Gen 4 G23 and swapping my LWD .357 SIG barrel would work, too.

Nice pistol that M&P. I got the full size 9 and it is a really nice shooter. I have the .45c on my sights.
