Sure. The Glock is a simpler, designed for war weapon. It has less moving parts and can cycle hundreds, if not over a thousand rounds before cleaning is necessary to avoid malfunction (sh!tty ammo excluded). It is the most popular LEO sidearm worldwide. On basic toughness, function, and overall reliability; you can't beat a Glock.
That said, I carry an M&P. It also is extremely reliable out of the holster and I can depend on it. Because of more moving parts, deep cleanings are required more frequently. For me, I will break my Glock down around every 2,000 rounds with a field strip and cleaning after each range visit. The M&P compact is going to require a bit more detail work, more frequently. None of this deters me. I get great accuracy with my M&P and I feel very secure keeping a round in the chamber due to the manual safety I chose for my 40c. So for me, and only me, personal safety trumps the Glock.
