I never liked the way Glocks felt and fit in my hand. For me the M&P platform is a great fit and easy, natural pointer for me. Great ergonomics. It just feels right.
I currently have an M&P v1.0 Shield 9 (carry gun in profile pic), M&P 9C v1.0, and an M&P40 v1.0 Full Size. I'll probably get an Apex 9mm conversion barrel so I can then also shoot 9mm out of the M&P40 full size. I just need to find a competent gunsmith that I can trust in Chicago or the surrounding area. Any recommendations? Lol.
One thing I don't like about Glock Gen 5 is the huge cutout in the magwell. What's the point of a flared magwell if there's going to be a huge cutout that your mag gets snagged up in on reload? It's worse than previous gens and they never should have done that in my opinion. I also never liked that Glocks come with plastic sights.
Rent some M&Ps at your local range and see how you like them. And if you do decide to buy one, get the newer 2.0 versions. The 1.0 versions are great, and if you already had 1.0 M&P's then I'd say that upgrading to the 2.0 is not super necessary unless you really want the latest and greatest. But since you don't have any M&Ps, get the 2.0 and you'll have a great gun out of the box, which is what you want since you like to keep them stock. Good luck.
