    A recent question was posed by my sheriff whether we should stay with Glock and upgrade to gen 4 or go to the m&p. i say glock becuase of the customer service, warranty, ease of armoring and the tried and true Glock name. But, the m&p is a sweet shooting gun man. Only downfall I see is detail stripping this gun is a b$&ch! Looking for pros and cons vs. both. Thanks for you input.

    Love the glock. I've owned four. I've had 1 M&P. It was a pro 9mm. Striker broke and had to get sent back after two Weeks. It took Smith and Wesson two months to get me my gun back. I'm lucky enough to have dozens of firearms but had this been a primary piece for self defense, I would have been up a creek without a paddle. Never broke a glock. That's my opinion. Oh and after all the stories I heard about S&W sending back a free mag or a t shirt, I'll tell ya I got nothing but a two month wait. I once sent a ruger back. It was returned within 2 Weeks and in the box was a free mag. Just my .02.

    Thank you for that. I want to buy American but I trust my life to Austrian engineering on this one.

    I really don't care to own a M&P. I don't see that they do anything better than glock. I do like a glock for basic function and ease of use. Besides if you change brands all will have to learn the different trigger pull and grip angle and that means extra trigger time and ammo waisted just to learn the new pistols. More dollars spend most departments don't have.
