What would you say are the negatives of the SW over the Glock and vice versa. I agree shot what you like best. Let's say it is a tie - what are the objective differences? THANKS!
Glock: is lighter, has a longer history/service record, Hexagonal rifling, .1" longer sight radius, .1" narrower, GEN4's have interchangeable backstraps/dual recoil springs, and a 5.5 lb trigger pull
M&P: standard rifling, "new kid on the block"-more and more LE agencies are starting to pick it up, beavertail, ambi slide release, convertible mag release, stainless slide and barrel, 6.5 lb trigger pull (i prefer the M&P trigger to the Glock YMMV), and a lifetime warranty.

Those are stats from their websites BTW

Both guns would be solid choices but in the end get out and handle both and choose what works best for you. In my case i went with the smithy because it fit my hand alot better and i prefered the trigger compared to the Glock.

Thanks for ur opinion guys, I was just wondering if I was the only person who thought the s&w is a Lil better then the glock, but I still like the glock for carrying use more, bc of the safey, and I like the s&w for home protection bc my wife can shoot it.

You have already made up your mind but if you want to know which gun I like then I must say I would choose any Glock over any S&W semi auto but I am partial to the Glock and I own 4 of them. I hope this will help you but I doubt it.
They r both great guns, no doubt about it, but I just wanted to see if I was the only one who liked the s&w more. Thats all bra

I don't think a bad guy is going to wait for you to reach for your keys and unlock your firearm. Glocks rely on the best safety as do some models of the M&P and that's the shooters brain. If you have a need for a safety, then a glock is not the firearm for you.

Lol I know, I use the key for my safe box, not when I carry.

I have a Glock 19. The M&P was one of several different pistols I I tried before deciding on the Glock. The Glock was the best fit for me personally and I love it
