Default I need to be convinced into buying!!! Help!

I'm a huge glock and Springfield xdm fan. The only smith semi I ever owned was a sigma so needless to say, we're currently separated. I will be buying a full size combat use 9mm from someone and need to know why to buy m&p. All opinions appreciated.

Natural 18 degree grip angle, light weight durable design, accurate. Whats not to love?? I for one prefer them to Glocks and XD's.

But thats just me.

I had one and was "disappointed"... Now I have a Glock for work and remember why I really like my M&P. I sure do miss it. You should buy, that way I can live vicariously through you.

Smith & Wesson really did their homework on designing this line. Glock had pretty much a strangle-hold on the polymer-frame striker-fired market due to excellent marketing and advertising for well over a decade.

S&W set out to grab as big a share of that market as they could and took all the best features of the design and made improvements where they could. Some like the Glock trigger better, some like the M&P trigger. Some (like me) did a little work on the stock M&P trigger and have gotten great results with no special tools or training required. Some have dropped an aftermarket trigger into the M&P and report a big improvement.

I personally look for ways to keep my money here in the US. Now, I certainly won't buy American unless I think I'm getting value for my money. I honestly think S&W is making a superior product for about the same money. The decision was a no-brainer for me.

I have the pro series. A few bucks more but better trigger pull and night sites. Cheaper than adding these later. Great ergonomics and weight distribution. Very accurate. You'll like the feel better than Glock & XDM. Both I believe over rated but popular and good quality guns. M&P is right there with them.

I just added my second M&P to the growing arsenal. I looked into the Glock and XD before buying my first M&P, but neither fit my hand as well as the M&P. My first M&P is a 40c, and it's my CC gun and has proven itself to be utterly reliable. Eats any ammo I throw at it and just runs. Today's purchase is more for fun, it's a 9 Pro 5".

Give the M&P a fair evaluation, I think it compares very favorably to the Glock and XD. And for me personally, it just feels better in my hand.

The "Made in the USA" part didn't hurt either.
