    Voted M&P as I just can't get used to the grip on the Glocks. The M&P fits and shoots better for me overall. Both very nice pistols though.

    I like certain Glock models better than the M&Ps in general. I like the M&P 45 a bit better than the G21 but not better than the G30SF. Of course I'll take the G19 over all of them. The only thing I don't care for with M&Ps are the hinged trigger and and it feels wider.

    Glocks never fit my hand/ felt comfortable. Gen 4 may change that.

    I have a Glock. The one thing that kept me from getting the M&P was that little pin in the trigger. I felt it was a weak point. My son, who has all sorts of pistols except the M&P, said the same thing. So I went with the G30.

    Is it a weak point? I don't know. But it was what made me go back to the Glock. Maybe one day I'll get one, but not that day.

    I don't own or have ever held the M&P. But I do have a G26 and carry it daily now as it is very reliable and concealable (for me). I plan on getting a 19 soon. All this said I think an M&P would probably be a fine pistol. My 2 cents.

    I voted Glock. I carry the G26 or G30 or G19. That said, I also carry Smith & Wesson model 60 .357 (have it on now). I have a Smith & Wesson 1911. Plus, one 40 year old model 36 snub. I think it is funny more votes for the M&P. Yeah it is better than the Sigma junk. Here is one for you M&P fans... I have thousands and thousands of rounds through my G26. One day at the range, I had two lite strikes out of 300rnds. New striker spring was a couple bucks and couple minutes to put in the gun. All is well again! I can replace any part in a few minutes time. I have a ton of aftermarket options on parts if I want to customize it. Glocks are great guns, and I won't be replacing with any M&P anytime soon. Oh yeah, love those rusted M&P slide photos on the internet.

    Whoa, let's not start getting hostile...Smith and Wesson makes some fine autoloaders, the M&P line included.

    That said, I don't own one, though I have fired one. I do own a Sigma, and I do own a Glock. The Sigma is not junk, it's been quite a reliable weapon for me. That said, it doesn't have much better than "acceptable" accuracy due to the hard trigger pull I believe. The M&P is a step above in refinement and ergonomics. I would put it in the same league as my G26 in terms of dependability, and refinement.

    In the end, I guess it would come down to looks for me. While it is a fine pistol, I never cared much for the looks of the M&P. I actually find the ugly duckling of the gun world (the Glock) to be attractive in a certain way. Not pretty, but attractive in a functional sense I guess. So my nod goes to Glock.

    I have a G19 and could not be happier with it... Over 1000 rounds through it with out a single problem at all... also have a g27 that has been flawless as well...

    A friend has an M&P and had to send it back to smith because the magazine kept falling out and the slide which is supposedly stainless was starting to rust!

    Owned them both. A Glock 19, 23 and 21. An M&P 45 full size and a 45 compact.

    For me, the M&P has a much softer push for recoil where the comparable Glock snaps. Also, the M&P fits my hand so much better.

    Having said that, I carry and compete with 1911's. That may have something to do with my preference.

    I like the way the M&P grip feels and points for me,but if had to use a Glock would do so with confidence

    I Carry M&P9 with about 2k rounds run through it. Had one stovepipe at about 200 rounds but the it was a new shooter and I feel he just had a very loose grip. Have had zero problems otherwise and not abit of rust.

    Very happy with it.
