I carry an MP45fs both on and off duty and a Ruger LC9 as my backup. I also own an MP45c, MP40c, and an MP9pro. I am about to purchase an MP40pro. I own a couple of Glocks and they are good firearms for what they are. But I believe there are much better firearms on the market currently. I also own an XD45, but have had several problems with it and hate the additional muzzle flip it produces as compared to an MP or Glock. I am a huge 1911 lover, but you asked about polymer guns...

3388, one of my bosses purchased one of those ruger 22s recently. He's only shot it once but seems to really like it. I can't see me buying any .22 any time soon that isn't either a MKII/III/IV or that sweet little Sig Mosquito or some kind of .22/.22mag wheel gun.


The Ruger LC9 is super practical but it felt kinda cheap to me. The frame seems like toy plastic, and the overall finish of the gun just seems lower quality to my relatively inexperienced eye. I'm kinda digging the SIG P290 for a deep concealment gun. The Kahr's (CM9/PM9) review nicely but are rather spendy. Same for the Sig P238. I really wish I could trust the good reviews over the nightmare reviews of the Diamondback DB9 cause I really like the looks and dimensions of it but the bad reviews are really discouraging. The P290 is shorter in length and height than the LC9.

Jeepman, thanks for your input. Your report is more in line with most others I've read about the M&P. Wonder why Jordan has such issues with his? A co-worker said his military buddy reports that the barrels don't last even a 1/3 as long as the glocks before having to be replaced. He didn't say what they started doing to require replacement though. I suppose sporadic accuracy is lost after a barrel has fatigued?

I like the feel of the gun and weather permiting I will go sight it in tomorrow. I had been trying to buy one for the last 2 months but no one here has been able to get any. I drove over to Houston to get it and the sight came in today.
I have a Baby Eagle sub compact 9MM that I really like but it is too large to carry.

The 9fs has been having problems with weak lock up for a while causing accuracy issues. The other models are very accurate. The 45 pictured has around 35k rounds through it as it sits. I had to replace the locking block last month, but other than that it has only had regular maintenance. The locking block developed a crack that I did not notice till I tore it down for cleaning. The firearm never hiccuped at the range and I continued to carry/shoot it while I waited on the new locking block from Smith and Wesson. It took 10 minutes to swap and now is good as new. I have had the 45fs since they came out in 2007. A lot of people who complain about the M&Ps have never or do not own one and are just regurgitating what they have read online. I have owned 7 so far and have had no issues. I have owned 4 Glocks over the years and I did have a 1st gen .40 cal failure with factory ammo, luckily I was not injured. However, it took me a few years to shoot another one, and the two in the safe now are 9mm.

I have the feeling the loss of accuracy is not the barrel, but weak lock-up getting worse as recoil springs and other items wear. It is VERY unlikely that the lands and grooves of a traditional handgun barrel would be worn out pre 100k rounds. Handgun rounds are much lower chamber pressures an velocities as compared to a rifle barrel do they tend to last a long time. Now the pistols around them is a different story...

I'm almost 90% certain I am going to purchase a M&P 40 Pro

But I was curious if anyone has had first hand experience with some of the new (current) Walther guns. I hear they have an incredible trigger

Default Glock

I have a Glock model 21 in .45 and a Springfield XD in .40. I have shot lots out of each gun. I like the feel of the XD better in my hand. Holding my Glock is like having a 2x4 in my hand. I will tell you this that when shooting both the Glock hands down shoots much better than the XD. My Glock 21 drives nails! Or should I say bowling balls!

My vote is for Glock!

By polymer, do you imply striker fired?

Walter has always had nice guns. I had a hard time choosing between them and the Smith and Wesson MP
