So i've decided to upgrade from a 9mm and start shooting .40sw, for many reasons but mainly just because i have a feeling its going to be hard to keep steel spinner targets moving with 9mm.

but its a toss up between a g22 and sw m&p40. i've shot both and am very familiar with glock and the glock platform. so it would benefit to get another glock but at the same time, im interested in getting my feet with with the m&p platform. i've researched a bit and the mechanics of it are not much different then a glock.. not as simple, but not much different either.

so which would you guys prefer? ibjefftellsmetogetasig

M&P 40. I own a lot of stock in Smith and Wesson. Help out their sales.

I would actually say though the Glock if you are comfortable with the one in 9mm. I did a lot of switching between pistols for awhile for various shooting and got to the point where I had to keep reminding my self to pay attention to the fact that this works this way, of the trigger is lighter/longer/heavier, have to use this Grip here, that one there, etc. So I dumped all my other semi-autos and just focused on the Glock platform.

The fact that there is a lot you can do with the gun on your own in terms of modifications is pretty nice as well, especially for a gun you plan on using in competition.

Glock man here. But shoot both if possible before you lay your money down. You might find that you do prefer one a whole lot more.

And whatever you purchase, enjoy.

I think the M&P is worth a serious look. Take a look at the crazy test this dude is doing with one:

50,000 Rounds in Six Months: M&P9 - M4Carbine.net Forums

pistol-training.com

The jist, he's putting 50,000 rounds through a bone stock, new in the box M&P9 within 6 months. Right now he's at week 20, 38,736 rounds, with only 2 stoppages, and his trigger spring just broke. He has a pretty comprehensive log on his site from week to week. I know it's not a 40sw, but I think it's still a good example of what the platform can be capable of in a general sense.
