Ditto. I was trying to decide between a Glock .40 and a Springfield XD. As soon as I held the XD I hated it, and the Glock was love at first touch (well, the 3rd gen with finger grooves was).

With out question you should shoot them both before you decide. I'm a M&P fan, I have a 45 and a 9mmC. THe reason I like them is the angle and fit of the grip. The ability to switch out the back straps is a great way to fit the pistol to your hand size. I think what truly sold me on the M&P was the hits on traget, not so much the first shot but the two or three in rapid succession, the pistol seem to be easy to manage on target much better than some others I own or have shot.

Good luck and let us know what you buy.

Imo they are both good,, I would wrap yer paws around a new xdm though. I have one and love it now, It just seems to melt into your hand perfectly and not to mention the 19+1 capacity. For what its worth the more I shoot my xdm and 1911's I am growing to hate my glock

Personally, I don't like the feel of the glock grip, the trigger,or the U dot sight thingy. I do like the new M&P pistola's though.

I tried both and found the trigger and grip on the S&W to be more comfortable than the Glock. The interchangeable backstraps are a bonus, the smaller one fits my girlfriend nicely.

I find the design more aesthetically appealing, too. In fact, it's the first tupperware gun I actually like.

Have you looked at any Springfield XD's? I have an XD40sc that is very comfortable to shoot and very accurate for a sub compact pistol.

I have the same pistol in OD green and feel the same way.

I recently outshot a fellow at the range that had a 4" glock .40.
