Default Trade a Xd45c for a New M&P .40?

So that's my question. Should i trade my Xd45c for a new M&P .40? A friend tells me the Smith is junk compared to the Xd.

That's like trading a Ford for a Chevy.

I can't speak for the xd as I've never handled one but I can tell you that the m&p isn't "junk". I suggest going down to the range and renting one first if at all possible.

Smiths are not junk I love mine but its all up to you do you love it? Your friend sounds like the kind of guy that whatever someone else is looking at its junk or the opposite is better. I'd ignore him and judge for yourself

I have an XD40 and two M&Ps, I like them both but shoot the M&P better. Also I'm a Glock guy as well. Really I like them all!

Definitely try out the smith trigger first. I think its hit or miss for people. Personally I like it and got use to it. But other than that, its as good as any other semi like it.

Thanks for the replies! I knew it was a Ford - Chevy decision. I will check the trigger on it.
