Carry an M&P9c everyday and love it. But if you're a glockophile you won't be disappointed with the gen 4 offerings. Have a G21 gen 4 and love it too.

don't know about the M&P but we've got 2 G19s (gen 4s) - was cleaning a couple of Glocks after my Wife took 'em shooting and thought to myself..."damn, these are so simple" - and, as you know they're really good, reliable shooters

so I'd say...... well, you know

I could never get into Glocks... Boring plus the trigger sucks.

I really like the M&P line. Currently have three different ones and have owned 5 total. It kinda comes down to personal preference, tho.

Ive never shot a Glock.

The M&P fits me well. The trigger is OK. I find the Shield trigger good.

TheDan, you find the Glock trigger worse than the M&P?

To the OP, the Glock 19 seams to be about a standard for a compact handgun. If youre happy in that world, id stay there unless you get the chance to try an M&P Compact to shoot and are impressed with it.

I've had both, and liked them equally. To me they're pretty much the same gun.

My problem was finding M&P magazines - after ten months of waiting I gave up on S&W and went back to Glock.

Just my 2 cents.

Mags were a major issue. I got some a few months ago and havent checked supplies since then. Unfortunately it is or was an issue.
