Steelshooter said:A good 9mm round say a 124 grain +P is pretty darn good. But I feel better with a 165 grain .40 or a .45. The M&P design makes it easy for me to hammer out rounds quickly and accurately in either caliber.

I was really talking about the barrel, glocks finish is better. But a stainless steel barrel is much stronger than glocks.Certainly Glock has a better finish. M&P's slide made of stainless steel is not really relevant to me since I would gladly trade Glocks finish/metal treatment for a stainless steel slide.
What do you mean by terrible aftermarket support for the M&P? Do you mean customer service from Smith or number of accessories available?
I much prefer the M&P trigger once it's broken in except the Glock has a more distinct reset.
blued metal rusts, it should be polymer or have the same finish a the slide.I had not heard of rust issues with M&P mags. I don't have any. Then again I keep my mags clean inside and out. Mags and pistol are cleaned after every firing.
I very much disagree that Glock has poor barrels and have no idea why anyone would say that.
I also don't know what "built cheap" means. Perhaps you could elaborate.

M&P wins me with everything but its magazine.
