    I don't have any experience with the MP series, but I LOVE S&W. I have owned my sigma for PROBABLY 5,000-ish rounds now, and only thing that has worn was the extractor. Called S&W, they sent me a pre-paid postage box and instructions on how to send my gun in an get it fixed...FOR FREE! Lifetime warranty, I am sure other gun manufacturers do this as well: but i give kudos to S&W customer service.

    Early on people had problems with the weapon dropping mags. Never shot one myself.

    I would check out the Springfield XD in a .40 also. I have an XD 45 and love it.

    My buddy has an M&P9 (Same basic gun as the .40) and I have an XD9. I have shot both many times. They are both great guns. Never any problems. The reason I went with the XD9 was because the grip fit me better, even after trying all 3 of the M&P's back straps. I would at minimum hold both, and even have the store let you try the different back straps for the M&P. Shoot both preferably. I would not hesitate to buy an M&P, if it fit me better. My XD has been flawless also, I just feel like I can get a better grip on it.

    I'd go Glock 23 if you need a .40... otherwise get a Glock 19

    Guns don't need to be pretty, they need to work. Do you go to a harware store and think... well, this hammer looks prettier than that one... NO! You get the functional reliable one.

    true but the glock just feels like crap in my hand it does not fit me well at all i know that they make a great gun but from all i have been told the S&w is also a gun that can take a beating and when you need it it will be there and work have i been told wrong?

    Phew-you got that right. See, i haven't ALWAYS been a responsible gun handler, lol.

    My S&W has been:
    dropped
    buried<---(I have witnesses to this one...)
    thrown
    wet, muddy
    i've charged it with more sand and grit in the action than i could stand
    fired all sorts of ammo through it
    have shot/carried it in a variety of climates

    Im still rockin' the origonal magazines and the rifling!


    ....just cleaned it after every experience, no rust! and YES, it still asks for more!
