Nothing wrong with either the M&P or Glock, both are fine choices.
Yea without a doubt and I'm saving up for a 1911 but it's going to take me a while

Well you're definitely close and picked an almost perfect gun in the G19. I love my G23, its 40S&W twin.

I love mine as well, I upgraded a few parts on it. I love glocks customer service as well, I sent it in to get a gen 3 frame and to be reblued and only payed $190. They gave me a new mag and a case with the cleaning brush. This may be small to someone but life is all about the small things.

I never got to handle an M&P 9mm. I wish I could have. By all reports they feel great. I did handle a SR9 that felt very nice, but I don't know that it felt that much different to my inexperienced hand than the G19. I live in NYS. Bottom line for me was that there are preban mags for the G19. Not for the others.

I own a Glock 17. A friend has an M&P and loves it, but I just don't care for them.

My Glocks never gave me problems, my first S&W M&P purchase gave me trouble from day one. The slide wouldn't lock back and it wasn't a magazine issue. I ended up selling it for rent.

The way I see it:

Glock- More aftermarket parts, cheaper aftermarket parts, cheaper mags, better mag design, and more solidly built.

M&P- Better ergo...........-cricket chirp-

Also the auto-forwarding on the M&P's was annoying. Even if I just gently pushed in the magazine, the slide would fly forward. I prefer to power stroke my weapon rather than hope that the slide will go forward by itself.

Glocks will do that as well.

I don't like the trigger reset on the smith and wesson M&P. Glock is the way to go, always!
