The number 1 reason I bought it was ergonomics. The thing just plain fits my hand like a glove. I had a Glock 17, and it was a great pistol. The M&P9 just fits my hand better than the Glock did. I also prefer the looks of the M&P and the fact that it's made in the USA for whatever those are worth.
One thing I don't like about the M&Ps is the lack of a audible and tangible trigger reset. The reset is there, but it's very faint in both feel and sound, even with the APEX ram installed. It's not that huge of a deal though, just a training issue.
Overall I am very pleased with the pistol. It's been reliable for the 500 rounds I've put through it, and I've been able to shoot it very accurately. I'm very pleased with my purchase and would definitely recommend them.
