    I can't decide which to purchase between the Sig P250, Smith and Wesson M&P, or the Springfeild XD. I know I'm getting a .45 ACP. Just can't decide which to get.... You guys please give some opinions or advice.

    I like teh way the M&P fits, and I don't like the XD grip safety. Sig makes great guns. See if you can shoot each, and figure out which fits and shoots best for you.

    I have the m&p 45 compact so I will be as one sided as possible. Great gun, perfect fit, accurate, concealable, 45.... Need I say more?

    Prefer the M&P trigger by far. Sigs are usually a better gun in most comparisons, and I'm not at all what one would call an S&W fan, but in this comparison I believe it to be the better gun because of the trigger. Plus it looks better! Hahaha

    I have owned my XDs for three weeks and 250 assorted rnds. Fun gun to shoot. Purchased the extended mag which makes range time better. Comfortable recoil however mine throws brass all over the place. But in a defense situation who cares....

    Well I was looking at some of those same brands when I came across my FNH FNP45. I absolutely love them gun. No it doesn't like cheap ammo but it does handle +p rounds with ease.

    Between those. I would say the m&p. Now if your talking about a 226 or 229. Than a sig. But the m&p feels spectacular in my hand. Don't know about yours. Oh and don't get discouraged about the gritty trigger on the m&p. It smooths itself out and feels fine after around 400 rounds.

    I wanted that gun but when I shot it the safety decocker kept pushing against my strong hand web area. Did not like that at all. And the magazine release was kind of hard to reach. I have Med hands. So I went with a usp45. But don't get me wrong the fnh is a nice weapon and maybe one day ill pick one up. My HK is my favorite by far. And I was a glock guy.

    I'm a die hard SIG fan and owner, but from that group I'd go M&P

    Well, if nobody else will give you the straight answer I will. All 3. I know, I know... The economy isn't great and money doesn't grow on trees, but this is 3 nice pistols we are talking about and life in short. Why limit yourself? Save if you have to and buy them 1 at a time...

    The FNP's are exceptional pistols. It's the only poly frame pistol I ever really enjoyed. I have regretted getting rid if mine since it's been gone.

    I couldn't decide between an M&P and the XD. I figured I'd rent them both and my decision would be made. Darn it if I didn't love them both. I went through a couple hundred rounds back and forth between the two. I finally flipped a coin and came home with the XD. I really don't think you could go wrong either way.

    They are all good. One thing you might consider, the P250 has an interchangeable barrel feature that allows the same gun/serial number to use 9MM, .357 Sig, .40 S&W, and I think, .45 ACP by swapping out the barrels and some other parts. So if you buy multiple barrels, it is still just one gun, legally.

    Great choice on the XD! I loved mine, I also loved my M&P too. Both great options.

    The XD provides an additional measure of safety if that was ever a concern, plus they are built like tanks.

    I was not a huge fan of the Sig P250. I had the opportunity to purchase one awhile back and I opted not to. I am not nearly as impressed with Sig's polymer line as I am with their standbys like the P220 and P226. Plus I have never been a fan of the idea of a modular gun. I just feel that ultimately you can potentially create a scenario for something to go wrong. Just my opinion of course.

    Great choice though, that XD will keep you quite happy!
