When I went to the range to fire my new M&P40 there was 2 other shooters there. One was shooting his XD45 for the first time, and the other shooter was shooting his Glock19. So we got to talking and we shot each others pistol to get the feel how the plastics compared. Lets just say that they left the range wanting a M&P. I have fired lots of glocks and I have never liked the feel or grips, and I wasnt to impressed with the XD45 nice pistol but for gun of the year I expected a better feel for the pistol. I put 400 rounds 300 WWB and 50 Federal EFMJ and 50 Federal hollow points through my M&P and it was flawless. Felt and shot great. The MP40 is a winner in my book and its mine all mine hahahaha.
