Spoke with a buddy of mine that works in the city beside me. THe cops there are going to switch from the Glock to the M&P. Don't know how may cops work the force but they cover a population of about 1 million or so. Great news for S&W

Right or wrong, LE sales tend to drive the civilian market (see Glock). I have no idea which side makes more $$ for firearms manufacturers. I would think, though, that S&W would be helping themselves by making folks aware of what LE departments are switching to the M&P - perhaps by posting that info here? :twisted:

I have no doubt that S&W's PR department will make sure all the gun magazines know about it!

Quite a few dept's have switched and if the MP continues on its current path of reliability/accuracy/ease of shooting, etc, I think you'll see more PD's switch.



We at Clearwater PD did and are completely happy, currently at least.

The PowerPoint slide that Matt posted stated that 106 Police Departments have switched to the M&P since January '06. That's pretty darn impressive in my opinion.

At a Glock Armorer School last year, they said that the LE/Mil market only makes up 15% of their sales, but accounts for huge amounts of their advertising.

I made the switch two weeks ago. Switched from my G35 to M&P 40. Won't be looking back. Let several other Deputies shoot it at the range, feedback was all positive.

Sheriff's Department Duty Weapon

Our department tested the MP .40 against the Sig Sauer 226 DAK, Para Ordinance .40, HK 2000 and the Smith was the final choice due to overall adaptability for all shapes and sizes of deputies. We have 90 deputies that are carrying this weapon and the qualification scores have dramatically improved. I am a die hard Glock man but this new Smith is a outstanding weapon. We are the first department in my area to switch but I am sure others will follow.
