I bought a XD for my carry gun about a year ago. My cousin and uncle just bought M&Ps. They seem to fit my hand a little better than the XD and the material the handle is made out of isn't slippery like the XD. I went out to shoot it with my cousin, but didn't get to test the accuracy of it. He had a local gun store put Truglo TFO sights on it and they were extremely off-center (noticeable to the right). It was shooting about 8" to the left at 15 yards. I wasn't able to compare accuracy with my XD, but I really want a M&P now.
