Why are we letting the talking heads TELL us what THEY think is good for us ??
Because the media is owned by one of 5 to 7 companies and banks. Those 5 to 7 companies and banks own Washington and run the country. To make it easier to run the country it is better to have unarmed citizens so you can do what you want, therefore they are telling us this is better.

The only thing that works better than not allowing people to be educated is to educate them badly. Score one for those who want to lead people around by the nose. I think they see us as pets.

Anybody have an opinion of a S&W M&P 9mm or a Glock 17 9mm? I've done a little research, but am curious of the opinions on here from those who have shot both of them.

I guess I should clarify, this isn't a gun necessarily for cc, but rather home defense.

I ordered an M&P 9mm- it fits my hand really well. I have only read a couple of bad comments and apparently, those people expected the gun to shoot straight all by itself. Both got great marks from most reviewers but there's always someone who doesn't like one thing or another, as you know.

As Jim stated above, very comparable guns. Shot both when I purchased my S&W9, both handled similarly. Grips are interchangeable (if I recall the Glock is interchangeable), 17rd magazine, etc. May just come down to feel in the hand, preference on looks, preference on brand name. And you're pretty accurate on the "not necessarily for cc" comment. Would probably feel like an anchor on your side if you're not used to carrying.

I haven't seen interchangeable grips on the Glock, although some use abrasive tape for a better grip, rather than just the plastic. The M&P comes with Sm, Med and Large- very easy to change, too.

I think some of the gen 4 glocks have interchangeable back straps on the grips.. I could be wrong though

Fired a S&W M&P yesterday - very nice - point, shoot and hit what I was aiming at. That being said - I am not a fan of Glocks.
