I had to carry a Glock for 6 years in AK and I did not not like it simply becasue I did not shoot it as well as others guns (hit probability). I could shoot my old 59 series S&W and score 10+ points higher on quals, but I was REQUIRED to carry the Glock! Enter the M&P, I shot it as good or better than the 5906/03's so I used it here for several years but I went back to the 5903 duty and the 3913 off duty about a year ago (all metal), BUT when I read the reviews of the M&P 2.0 compact by several Glock guys who said they liked it BETTER THAN THE GLOCK I nearly carped my britches!!! To have a Glock worshiper say that it must be good. I got one (IPO sale, 3 mags and night sites) and I am here to tell you it is the best hand gun I have ever used in 40+ years of LE. Nuff said.
