I agree 100%

Gotta love the M&P 9mm. Comfort, good trigger, easy to strip and clean, American made.

Go wrap your fingers around a few and pick the one that feels best to you. Today you can buy a great pistol or a turd from any company and you have to figure out how good yours is shooting a few hundred rounds threw it. Accuracy in a defence pistol is going to be about the same with any of them too. It going to be much more about how well you shoot the pistol you buy not the accuracy its capible of. About anything out there can shoot 3" 25 yard groups but not many shooters can just standing up and shooting away and match what the firearm is capible of.

I bet you wrote Heckler and Koch , and your auto correct replaced it with Sturm Ruger. No worries, My friend once wrote that he was stopping to pick up pencils at the store for his daughter. His auto correct replaced pencils with penises. I still tease him about it.
