The S&W M&P 45 is a very nice striker fired semi-automatic pistol. It holds ten rounds plus one in the chamber, nice sights, very accurate, very reliable, and manufactured in the USA. The recoil is average and, for a full size 45, feels good. The M&P is compared to a similar Glock model all the time. It seems like the Glock is favored over the Smith and Wesson by a good number of people comparing the pistols. I don’t get it! I would take the M&P over the Glock because, in my opinion, better trigger, less recoil, and feels better. I cannot tell any difference in the accuracy. I posted an excellent review from You Tube on the M&P, and a funny review of the 45ACP by Colion Noir.
