    Recently our department decided to test the mp .40. Let me say that it is a smooth shooting gun and i am in love. My only worry is is that it hasnt been around long enough to see if it compares quality wise to the glocks? Any thoughts?

    I've heard far fewer complaints about M&P than I have GLOCK. I wouldn't say that really means so much since GLOCK has been around twice as long, but it does mean something to me.

    Outstanding! The Glock stock trigger feels like a staple gun to me The mp is smooth.

    I have never heard anyone say anything negative about M&P. Also consider that maybe M&P's have only been around 11 years but Smith & Wesson has been around since 1852. Glock has been around 30 years but the Generation 4's have only been around a couple years.

    Look at both guns history side by side:

    Smith & wesson, 1852.

    Glock, 1982.

    Smith & Wesson M&P, 2005.

    Glock Generation 4, 2010 (not even in Wikipedia yet).

    I would say the M&P has more gun making experience backing it up than the Glock.

    I love the way my M&P feels in my hand. The ergonomics are great. The only thing I don't like is the stock trigger, but until I can get a trigger job, I just keep practicing with it. My G19 feels like a brick, looks like a brick, but I shoot it better.

    I heard that all the new M&P's are going over to the trigger from the M&P Shield. So there os probably a mix of old and new triggers on the M&P's at the shops now.

    I've heard the same thing about the newer models. I did like the trigger on the Shield I tried at my LGS. While not great, it is definitely an improvement. :D

    The two real differences I can see or feel are the grips and triggers. The Glock is squared up as far as the grip goes and the M&P has a better trigger feel and with the Shield trigger it is even better. Then you can get the M&P with an external thumb safety also.

    This just leaves some room to customize the trigger to your liking.

    Both great guns,highly accurate and dependable. I did trigger jobs to both. Only complaint I have with the m&p is the stupid little lever you have to push down to strip it.

    I own an M&P 40c and full size .45, I also own a G17, G19, and a G22. I must say that I like both guns a lot. I do tend to shoot the Glocks a little better and the trigger feels much better in my opinion...especially the reset. I do like the ambidextrous slide release on the M&P and the palm swell grip system as opposed to the back strap design of the Gen 4 Glocks...but I don't use them on the Glock anyway so it's not a huge deal. I have carried both on duty, but my department has started issuing us the G22, and even though I have the option of carrying a personal, I figure why not use their gun instead of my own.

    Overall I don't think one is better than the other. There are little things I like about each of them.

    Our agency uses the M&P40. One gun at the training range has 80,000 rounds through it, with no need for anything beyond being cleaned and lubed.

    Personally I own a Glock 21 sf and a S&W m&p 40, and I've not had a single problem with either, though my round count for each is a paltry 1,000...

    The biggest difference for me between the M&P and GLOCK is the grip angle and weight. The M&P will be slightly heavier than a GLOCK. For instance, my M&P .40 is heavier than my GLOCK 22, however, I strongly prefer the grip angle on the M&P over the GLOCK
