I kind of forgot about this thread, I did get a chance to shoot both side by side. I thought the M&P had less snap and less muzzle rise. I had shot a 26 a long time ago and thought wow glad I didn't get it in a 40 but when shooting the M&P9c I was thinking the M&P40c would probably be nice.
I had just purchased my M&P compact this weekend and I love it! I have owned a few Glocks in the past and the feel of this gun is way better! The grip is much easier on the hand and seems to be balanced a bit better.Only time will tell,but so far so good.Anyone looking for a compact pistol should definately give it a look
I have both and have carried the G26 and now will carry the M&P compact. I like them both, but the M&P sure feels nice to shoot! I just got it and I like how it feels. I like both of my "babies" and wouldn't give 'em up. They are both different, but, like I drive a car and a van, both different but I like them both for whatever qualities they have. Both are great guns and you can't go wrong with them. I sure like my new "arrival", the M&P, it is sweet!
I have both and dont get me wrong, love my G26 but if i had to get rid of one it would be the Glock the MP feels like a Pamela Anderson in my hand I think smith hit the nail on the head with this one let those MP Roar!
i shot both and bought the mp9c. the 26 just didn't feel good in my hand. my son in law (a marine who owns a full size glock) was there and fired both too. we talked about it and he agreed the mp felt better. at the end of the day, pick the one you feel comfortable with and can shoot accurately.
I've had both, the 26 is a good gun but I've sold mine and now carry an M&P compact. I shoot it better, it feels better in my hand, and points more naturally. I put factory night sights on mine and that makes it even better for me.
