    I've never shot or even held the m&p, but I've owned the xdm .40. It is one sweet gun. I should still have one but I digress...it has an excellent trigger and just plain shoots good.

    Like farley, I can't tell ya much about the M&P but I went with my son when he bought his XDM and held both....personally the XDM felt way better and it shoots great.

    I bought a SnW 40 last year new, First three shells and it hung up. Got rid of it the same week JS

    I've had 3 xds in 40 and used a few in 9mm. I currently own and prefer a 9mm M&P full size. The lack of grip safety and superior aftermarket support for the M&P wone me over. The XDm is nice but a bit pricey for what it is in my opinion.

    Sounds like I will call and tell them to put the xdm up for me. I like all the stuff that comes with the xdm. It also has a 4.5 match barrel. The m&p don't come with the stuff as the other. I reviewed it and it got all high reviews. The xdm is only like 65.00 dollars more.

    On another forum they said the xdm is like the low line in pistols. They told me the glock is 10 times the pistol as the xdm. I want a good pistol when I buy one. I know the xdm comes with alot more stuff than the other too. Will take all the help I can get. Which of the 3 is built the best? Richard

    I prefer Glock. I've been shooting one since 1994. I still have that one & I've shot over 10,000 rounds through it. I've bought & swapped several through the years & still own 3 Glocks. Nothing wrong with either of the others though.

    All 3 are great pistols, just don't get hung up with what they come with. A great pistol doesn't need to package accessories with it to sell.

    But you won't With any if the three just handle them and see what you think.

    Can't go wrong with either. I have a xd and I love it and I also have a m&p shield and I love it. I don't like the xds cause it is to boxy in my hand I prefer the shield.

    Which one is best s &amp; w mp 40 s&amp;w or sfield xdm 40 s&amp;w

    Im a big xd fan, always thought of them as a better built, better looking, better shooting, than glock. Bet that stirred the pot.

    The xdm fit my hand the best. The other 2 hair small for my hand. I got the 40 my buddy told me it wasn't big enuf I should have got a 45 acp. I think the 40 will work for me. I could have got a glock g 4 he had a new one in stock. I know I will be happy with the xdm. Richard

    So far my xdm has shot great. I've put around 400 rds threw it so far and it has ate everything I've thrown threw it. Now if I could just get my hands on m&amp;p 9L pro c.o.r.e.!

    Buy the one that feels best to you. Hold them and point it where you are looking and see which one is aimed where you pointed. When I point a glock it is way high I don't like their grip angle. I like the xd best of the 3.
