Thread: M&P or XD

  1. #11
    I've got the XD9 Service and love it. Tried the M&P and I'm impressed with it, too, but it did't fit into my purchase budget the last time around. So, Springfield Armory got my money, instead. The M&P will be my next purchase.

Since then I've also added the XDm 9mm compact, which is what I use for carry. So my advice would be to try them both out - you'll know which one is the right one for you.
    DING! Correct... Touchy feely is the best way to decide... Shoot many choose one...
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

    Proud owner of a XDm .45 ACP. Wonderful to hold, wonderful to shoot. I researched the M&P, I may get one in .40.

  8. I have had both an XD and XDm and actually thought I would never give them up. I have probably owned everything at least once as i have benn carrying more than 40 years.

    The first time I fired an M&P 9 I couldn't believe it. There is no getting around it, the XDm is a great pistol but the M&P 9 is phenomanal. I now have a 9c and I was one of the lucky ones that just got one of the 6,000 new S&W M&P 22s.

    Hold both in your hand and see what "feels" better to you. For me, It's the XD. Fits my hand like a glove and point naturally like a 1911.

    I cant believe I am about to say it, but go with the M&P. I would advise the XD, but with the fact it could cause you issues in your state, better to be judged by 12 using the "state approved" defense tools than go in with something else. Now I have to go wash my mouth out with soap and apologise to the tactical (5") and subcompact XD's in the house.
    My way is not better, it is just mine, your way is not better, it is just yours.
    Carry what your comfortable with, there is no "Supergun" Carry how your comfortable, open or concealed, so you have it with you when you need it

    Smith & Wesson has been shown in past to be compromisers. ...I'll look it up, again, if someone insists and cannot take it upon themselves to research it.

    Springfield Armory true blue, along with red and white.

    I say XDM.
