Either one is a great gun. If the Glock feels better to you, then get the Glock. Don't over think it.

And you are basing this on what? I've never owned a Glock so I have no opinion one way or the other. I'm sure they're fine guns. I have owned my share of Smiths, both revolvers and semi-autos and they have all served me well. My latest purchase is an M&P 40 and it's a very fine weapon.

I had a chance to try a Glock .40 It felt nice, sights were good and it cycled well for me. I would like to try one in 9mm at some point.

Though I have to admit that I really like my Sig P220 better. That is just my opinion. But hey, if it burns powder and sends chunks of metal down range its all good right?

That's true. A .40 from a hi point fills the same as a .40 from a p226 to a bad guy. And it puts the same size hole on paper.

I have had both and a Sigma. They both are great guns. The Glock is better to stay on target with. I havbe a 17 and 21. The M&P 45 is nice to the trigger is better than any glock you therel less of a rubberband feel. Apex makes I great trigger for the M&P. amost mimics a 1911 trigger. I feel the M&P is more of a Tac Driver and is IMO more accurate than a glock. You can't shoot all types of ammo from a glock either. an M&P wqill fire lead no problem. With Glock, lead will make the gun explode and quite possibly take your hand with it. do not fire +p+ from a glock. Glocks go boom w/ +p+ ammo.

Glocks are easier to take apart and clean, hands down. The M&P is a better looking gun and feels more like a civi would have ot for a show off gun. Glock is as basic as it gets. Frame, barrel, pin bang. no frills at all.
They both are great guns as long as you don't reload and fire lead. If you reload and fire lead get the M&P.
