glock vs s&w -m&p

hey gunshot.long time to see y'all.hope everyone here is doing well and getting some range time.anyways,i just did my first pistol meet today with a borrowed gun,and i gotta play again.....so I've been looking at glock but i have a good deal for a m&p holster a few mags trigger and fiber optic front sight for 650.guy says he likes it he just shoots better w block so he's no longer got a use for it.any suggestions or reasonable substitutes for either would be appreciated.thx guys ill be on periodically throughout the next few days.take it easy all.

Hi jay

I don't think you can go wrong with either one. I own a Glock 26 and like the hell out of it, but Glock 17 and 34 are good guns apparently for competition shooting.

Good luck with your shooting!

How're you doing? I lean towards S&W myself, but that's a personal prefence. Glocks just don't feel right to me for some reason.

pistols

leaning heavily between the s7w and block but am interested in an fn my brother recommended as well as a beretta or clone(taurus) that i used in the first and only meet I've been to so far,it shot dead on and was easy to use aluminum frame,frame safety "high mag button" i guess the early models were quite different...anything else i should be looking into as far as polymer guns in 9mm?keep in mind although i don't have a "budget" id like to be talking c's not k's because ill need lots of mags due to my state 10rd capacity as well as a holster and belt.

S&W or Glock

I have several smiths and one glock. I like them both. I do shoot better with the M&P. The grip on the M&Ps are just great. My glock 21 has never failed me, so really you can't go wrong here. However, if I had to choose only one of my handguns, then of these 2 I would go with the M&P. It just feels great in the hand and shoots even better. I hope this helps.

Hey in PPC league, which I shot for 7 years, I used a S&W model 10 with fixed sights, in 38 caliber, against guys using 2000.00 race guns in 38 super. I did well and became " that guy that shoots the 38 just kicked your ass". Good natured ribbing for those that showed up with high-speed gear and couldn't shoot. I figured as long as I was learning, I didn't care about anything else.good luck.
