    Both great guns. I've owned both.
    Capacity on the 19 is better.
    You should check both out and shoot them if possible to see which you truly like better.

    I would repost this in general handguns. Less bias and more eyes will read your request. My .02.

    Probably a good thought. I'll also add your preference on safeties is something else to consider.

    I think you can't go wrong with the Glock or the M&P. Try them both out and see which feels better in your hands.

    Like they said, either one is a great choice. Its really hard to say, I have two glocks and one is a 23(same size as 19 diff cal) and I love that friggin gun. With that said, I want a sig, xdm and a m&pc in 9mm. Just hold both guns and which ever one feels the best go for it. If you can shoot both that would help also.

    I'm not a big Glock fan, I like em and they do everything well but they just don't do it for me. We have a M&P 9c and a G19 gen3, I'm a better shot w the Glock but I carry the M&P most of the time. If the 9c had a slightly longer barrel I'm sure it would be just as accurate as the Glock. My only regret is not getting the fullsize since I open carry 99% of the time.

    the word is they are both great I have to g26 but I'm looking to get the m&p 9c. It is catching up to the glock name of reliability.

    The biggest thing Glock has going for it is aftermarket support, but slowly but surely things are leveling out. If S&W, Springfield, Ruger would keep model features across the board like Glock does I think Glock would lose a lot of sales

    I would just take your current gun to a busy range. In short order you will get to shoot both guns. Most people are flattered to hear that you are interested in buying a gun like theirs.

    if given the opportunity to shoot both, then do so. pick the one that suits you the best. both are good options and would serve you well, but it really comes down to personal preference more than anything.

    i can shoot a Glock quite well, but my hand prefers the M&P over the Glock due to ergonomics. having owned and shot many, many pistols over the years i have become accustomed to adapting to many different pistol designs and have learned to shoot them well. this is not always the case of the newer shooters though.

    Like others suggested I would try both and see what you really prefer. I went with glock, due to familiarity and compatiblity of parts. But go with what you like. Both are solid guns with solid companies behind the products.
