m&p 9c
 
I'm looking to buy a m&p 9 compact is it a good gun. Anybody out there have any good or bad experience with it. I used to have a xdm 9 compact are they similar guns? And what's the good or bad of the m&p 9c?

Some random thoughts. Glock 26, M&P9c, and Springfield Xd9 are all good choices. All are high quality and all have a lot of after market accessories that are easy to get. I like the grip angle on the M&Pc better than the Glock or Xd. I prefer the M&P9c model with no manual saftey and with the crimson trace laser. Nothing wrong with the model that has the safety however. Both Glock and M&P have a lower bore axis than the Springfield XD, this may or may not matter to you, the only way to tell is to shoot all of them. XD has the grip safety which is a nice feature that doesn't add any complexity. Glock is the easiest and quickest to break down for cleaning, followed by the XD, followed by the M&P. I like hogue or packmyer rubber sleeves to enhance the grip. Another nice option are trijicon night sites. M&P is the longest of the three, followed by the Glock, then Xd. Glock is the lightest, then M&P, then XD. None are pocket pistols. I like the M&P Shield better than any above as a CCW.

The 9c is a great gun after a trigger job. Relatively easy to conceal for a mid-sized gun. I still prefer my glock though.

I have an M&P 9c and an M&P 45. They are both great guns. I was in a local gun store and the S&W Rep just happened to be there. Since my experience with the VE 40 were not good I was staying away from S&W. The rep explained to me the history of the VE line and how they had made mistakes making a cheap gun. So he invited me to try the M&P. I bought one on his recommendation and guarantee. What a nice surprise. This gun shoots well, on target, and no problems. So well I went back and bought the 45. Don't shy away from the M&P, they are great handguns.

M&p9c is a great gun. It accepts full size mags. It is a good all in one gun or a back up to your full size. If all you want is a CCW go shield if you want an all around gun go compact IMO. The trigger works itself out after shooting. Polishing the trigger components will also correct any issues you have. You don't need to spend $100 plus on a trigger job, if your new to guns a competent S&W can make a smith trigger feel like glass

IIRC, no manual safety -was a deal breaker for me. Got a Px4 Storm Compact.
