Local IDPA Observation
When I first started to regularly participate in IDPA in '07, the SSP division seemed to be dominated by Glocks.
My last match, on our 12 shooter squad, the gun breakdown was as follows:
Three 5" 1911-type guns
One double-stack 1911-type gun
One Steyr M9-A1
One Ruger SR9
SIX S&W M&P (mostly 9mm, with one or two .40S&W)
I almost went the M&P route myself, but I'm happy with my SR9.
Just an observation.

M&Ps are up and coming, would like to know how they do.

How would a 1911 be SSP compliant?

It shouldn't but I am guessing his squad was not SSP only
You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.
Ego will kill you. Leave it at home.

I got one of the M&P Pros a few months ago. It is really nice. It shoots just as well as my Glock 34. I do wish the trigger was a touch better though. It has just a bit of creep. It does't really bother me though.
Bend the knees, smooth is fast, watch the front sight.

Was not saying the 1911's were SSP.
One of the M&P shooters is an SSP Master and another is Expert. Not sure of the other four, but all have more experience than me.
That day, my SR9 and all the M&P pistols ran with no problems. A couple of the 1911 guys had issues. The Steyr had a stovepipe, but that may have been due to a limpwrist shot because of the particulars of that stage.

For my duty weapon - I went to the full size .40 M&P.
After letting one of my PD friends shoot my M&P - 3 days later he sold his Glock and bought the same M&P.
Today my nephew (a .45 1911 fan) is buying a .40 full size M&P for his CC.
1911's are great - Glocks are tops also - but several PD's across the country are moving to the M&P and it's gaining popularity with competition shooters as well.
For God, Family and Country!
