Both are good. Shoot one and see if you like it better than the Glock.

I've got the M&P, it was a little bit cheaper than the Glock and made in the USA.

i personally like the way my M&P fits in my hand. It feels (to me) like my magpul grip on my AR.

if you had the option to trade your m and p for glock would you do it?

My preference would be the glock, however, I'd recommend getting the M&P too. Although, try it out 1st, and see I'd you like it.

Put yourself up against a timer and get whichever you shoot the best.

The differences one might have over the other is pretty much personal preference. You can't go wrong with either. I like Glocks for parts availability, both oem and aftermarket. Mags are also more abundant and cheaper. Glocks are also extremely easy to detail strip and modifying inside-out.

The M&P feels better in hand but in practice, it didn't give me any noticeable benefits when actually shooting. I still shoot Glocks better.

do you like red or green apples? Go put some lead down range and compare.

+1

No.

There are more Glocks out there (20+ years of production) than M&P and you can find'em in used, VG to exc condition cheap.

Speaking for myself, I have an M&P9C and I like its grip a helluva a lot better than my G19. However, I shoot them both very well especially the Glock due to more familiarity. So, it's a case of toss a coin to pick one.

go shoot both and buy the one you like. That is the best way as they are both good pistols.

I have the M&P 9, M&P 9c, M&P 45, and a Glock 19. I prefer the M&Ps, but will never say anything bad about my Glock. I shoot the M&Ps better, and they feel better in my hand.

There is a lot of personal preference in choosing a handgun. What is great for one, might not be good for someone else.

A friend has a Sigma 9mm. I hate shooting it, but he can hold his ground in head to head shooting with it.

Like others have said shoot both, then buy the one you like the most first. If you like both, put the other on your wish list.

You can't have too many guns. My only problem when the Zombie Apocolypse occurs is making the decision on which gun to shoot zombies with first! :cool:

If the M&P came with a Glock trigger and I already owned normal capacity M&P magazines I would choose the M&P only because of ergos.

The HK P30 is the best feeling 9mm I've felt to date I'd really like to try a PPQ also.

Try them all. My buddy loves m&p but i prefer glock. You really cant go wrong with any modern polymer pistol.

I'm a Glock guy, but really like the M&P. It feels great in my hand, I just can't get past the vague feel of the sear reset on the trigger even with the Apex kit installed. If it had a crisp feel on the reset I'd get one

Ever try a RAM? The reset isn't as good as a Glock's but it's still pretty good.

I have both. 9mm Glock reliability is as good as it gets in Gen 3.

I personally shoot the M&P slightly better.

If my M&P makes 10k with no breakage, I'll probably switch over to it for primary.

The ergos of a Glock suck. The trigger reset is awesome.

Can't go wrong with either.

Like choosing between the two hottest Victoria's Secret models.

Get both if you can..... more gun, I need more gun.

I had an M&P and got rid of it, due to the trigger(even with Apex sear) breaking at the last 1/32" of the travel. I have monster mitts for hands, so it did not work for me. I have a G-17 and a G-34 and both work OK for me.
Do yourself a favor and rent both guns a few times before buying, that way you'll have a bit of time to reflect on the strengths and weaknesses of each one.

For left handed shooters the M&P is superior Ambi slide releases and switchable mag release on the M&P give it a leg up.

Never even heard of it, I will have to look into it. Thanks.

Both are superior pistols. For me, the M&P was more comfortable, easier to shoot, and I was more accurate with it.

Try both, see which one suits YOU better.

how about get the m&p in a .40 smith and wesson so you can't compare it with the g19 :)....

Go for the M&P. I love mine. I shoot it a lot better than my buddies G19.

I agree with what a lot of people posted above. If you can....try before you buy.
