    Trading M&P for Glock

    Am seriously thinking of trading my M&P 357 SIG for a Glock 32. Have lots of 357 ammo, so I'd best stay with the chambering. I do like the size of the 19/23/32, and while I like my Smith, the Glocks shoot better for me. I'm so ashamed. But I guess I have finally realized why the Glock guys (better, Zonk?) love Glock. I seem to be headed down that path. However, I am still and forever will be a SIG snob.

    Sold my M&PC 9mm for my G19 and don't regret having done so. Couldn't afford to have two 9mm at the time, but would have liked to have kept the S&W. NOW, however, I got myself the SHIELD and I am a very happy camper(shooter!) with my two 9mm's. My opinion: two of the best guns available today and don't cost an arm and a leg, or a foot and a hand, or.... !

    Mans gotta do what a mans gotta do.... I thing the M&P is a better firearm, but I'm not the one doing the trading; besides, if you shoot the glock better well that's the right choice IMO.

    If they took all my Glocks away, I would carry an M&P. This is a tough decision, but for carry I'd go with the G32. The full size M&P's are just a tad large for carry IMO.

    20 years ago you could not have given me one of these ugly plastic guns. Today, if I don't have a couple of them within reaching distance of me, I feel naked.

    Kimbers are the guns you show your friends....Glocks are the ones you show your enemies.

    I like them both, and don't recommend one over the other. I carry Glocks, but would be very comfortable with the M&P.

    Way to go, you will love the G32 it has become my main CCW. What I love so much about Glock hand guns is that they are so simple.

    Its a free country, but Im curious as to why?

    The M&P are very similar to the Glock

    Just as reliable
    Just as accurate

    The grip on the m&p is less square
    The m&p is made in America

    What non-shooter are YOU planning on taking to the range?

    Some people shoot one better than the other. He mentioned that in the OP.

    It's probably a personal preference to a large degree. I don't find that I shoot one better than the other. I can't think of anything that makes one better than the other as far as quality, accuracy, or durability goes. One thing that draws me to Glock is the simplicity of it.

    Last week traded my G17 gen 3 RTF2 for a G34 gen 4. I'm upgrading all my Glocks to gen 4s. I now have a G22, G17, and G34 in gen 4s and I guess the G19 will be next, followed by the G26. Don't know what that has to do with anything, other than it says how much I like of the gen 4s.

    BTW FWIW, according to my LGS who was recently contacted by a Glock rep, said Glock is no longer manufacturing gen 3s.

    There's a lot of talk about the blocky feel of a Glock, but I like the Glock grip better than the M&P grip - again, that's just personal. The Glock grip lets me have more hand contact with the frame and although I can't quite put my finger on it (no pun intended), it just really feels good in my hand. I think part of it is the wider grip.

    Good for you.

    I like how glocks shoot, but I prefer carryng MPs...

    I have no idea what it is. I'm very good with glocks (better than my MP sometimes?) but I just love my MP9c.

    MP9c vs G19, I think I shoot the G19 better. I haven't done too much testing, but shooting like 10 rounds from a G19, I liked it. I also used a G17 in the police academy and always scored 48/48 it was a G17 from early 90s....

    Sometimes I think about getting a G19, but I just don't care for them. lol
