I would go with the M&P in .40 unless they had one in 9mm. Then I would get an M&P 9 unless they had a Glock then I'd go with a G19. J/k...but not really.

The M&P series is reliable, has great ergonomics, is easy to break down and has a low bore axis. That'd be my pick of the two.

Go for the one that you like the feel of better. IMO the M&P is worth the extra money over the Ruger. The Ruger is a good gun though.

IMO, the M&P is the best polymer handgun in the $500 price range.

I have owned both guns! Sold the ruger and still have the s&w! I like the feel and less snappiness to me! No light strikes go for it

I own and really like the Ruger SR series guns. They are well made, simple to operate and field strip, they are accurate and a joy to shoot. I own the SR9c and the SR45, the SR9c is my fav of all the semi-autos I own. You can't go wrong with either line of pistols you are considering.

+1 on that. The SR40 has less 'snap' than the M&P. It was a no brainer decision for me about a year ago and have not had 1 moment of regret. It fits my hand so much better than the MP as well.

Don't get me wrong, I like S&W - just bought their MP15 AR as a matter of fact. But in this contest, for me, Ruger takes the cake

The Ruger felt better, and the trigger felt better (less like a striker and more like a single action).

The one thing I wish is that I could test fire them both. We have no ranges around here that rent so you can try them before you buy.

I have noticed that there are a couple votes for each model being less snappy. Dunno how to take that.

No matter what, I am having to wait til next summer due to financial reasons.

That's because recoil is a subjective thing, at best.

The sr40c has way more "snap" than the m&pc.
