    Narrowed next purchase down to these two:

    Your opinion please.

    Since the VA is providing my duty pistol (Beretta 9mm) my brother wants to buy my full size .40 M&P. I am selling it to him.

    Now - I've wanted a small .40 compact - with a rail - for quite a while.

    I know I don't want to buy a compact Beretta.

    I had been looking at the M&P .40c - especially since it would be same as my duty pistol.

    Product: Smith & Wesson M&P Compact .40 S&W

    Now that's not the case.

    I'm still looking at the M&P Compact - but also heard a lot of good about the Taurus 24/7 .40 subcompact.

    Taurus International Manufacturing Inc

    Your opinions on both please. Thanks in advance....

    I've shot both the M&P and 24/7 platforms.

    I own an M&Pc. The 24/7 is a nice gun, but it really doesn't compare in quality or ergonomics to the M&P line.

    Especially since it matches your duty gun I don't think you can go wrong with the M&Pc

    I carry the M&P9c and my son the M&P40c.

    We both really like the guns.

    Very accurate and easily concealed. I sometimes have to remember I am wearing it.

    I don't know about the Taurus but I sure do recommend the M&P compacts.

    This was last month.
    50 rounds
    20 center mass
    10 double taps center mass
    10 head shots in under 10 seconds.

    I have a M&P9C (9MM)and a Glock 26 (9MM) ,both work
    flawless and I,m sure the M&P.40C and G27 would work just as well.
    But just to throw you a curve,I'll ask you this.
    Because you now carry a 9MM at work , you may be better served carrying a 9MM so you are practicing and CCing with the same round you will have to work with daily.
    I know the .40 is a stronger round, and if thats what you like to carry
    by all means do so, but as you did ask for input, theres mine

    The compact M&P shoots just as well as the standard size. Both shoot better to me than my G27 and are not as "blocky" for concealed carry. I'd definately go with the M&P..

    Both are good guns. Both have excellent warranties. However warranty service for a Taurus has been painfully long in the past.

    As an aside I recently found out that you can order an M&P WITHOUT a magazine disconnect which is a plus for me.

    Definitely go with the MP40c ... mine has functioned flawlessly, and is easy to conceal.

    You shoot like that all the time you could probably get by with a Daisy BB pistol.

    Wife has M&P40c and really likes it, I carry the 24/7 Pro Compact in .40 and like it better due to the grip. I would say handle both and see what fits. Just my .02.

    I have a G26...my buddy a compact M&P 40......I had a G27 couldnt handle the snappy nature of the caliber but am fine with the 26. The M&P in 40 is snappy for me too.....I must just be a 40 wuss!

    Seriously, I would go for a compact 9 in G or S&W.
