    I've tried Glocks, XDs, Rugers, and now...

    I've tried a few polymer frame handguns over the few years I've been into firearms and the only one that has actually stayed with me is my Glock 19 since 2007. I've fondled the one I picked up today in the past and always liked the way it felt and the trigger has a nice crisp pull to it, it's probably one of the best trigger pulls I've experienced in any polymer handgun. This was sort of an impulse buy but I thought "hey what the heck I hear good things about these!" So this is what followed me home early this evening.



    a Smith & Wesson M&P9

    Sorry for the crappy picture, my camera is not that great LOL!

    I doubt it'll replace my G19 as my EDC gun but it might find its way into my carry gun selection depending on how good I am with it. I really like the way it feels and I found the smallest size back strap fits best for my hands.

    Congrats on your purchase. My best friend loves his M&P 9 and .45 pro models.

    I used the Smith M&P 40 caliber before I retired from my job. I liked it so much that I bought myself one to carry. Great pistol.
    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

    It may very well replace your Glock. They are sweet shooters with excellent ergos.

    Congrats on the new gun. Let us know how it does on the range.

    In no time at all.

    WHy was I not shocked, when I scrolled down and saw an M&P in the picture.
    M&P's are just better, IMHO.

    in my experience, it will not replace your G19. but that's a purely subjective observation. enjoy it.

    I have the M&P 40 as my edc and love everything about it, however, its personal likes and dislikes. Both are excelent carry options.

    sigh.. I've been wanting to trade my G23 for a M&P 9 or 9c. Someday..

    I've been seeing soo many people go from Glocks to the M&Ps.

    I like the way they feel in my hand, which always helps me shoot better.

    What's not to like right? Reliable, accurate, light weight, durable, affordable. All great attributes.
