    Good info & video 👍

  2. David Hudson on January 26, 2023 at 1:40 am

    ‘Twins’ 😁 Both feel and shoot the same for me in a good way but they were both sidelined several years ago for the CZ and Sig P-series pistols. 😍

  3. Rose Marsili on January 26, 2023 at 1:41 am

    Which of these has the easier to rack slide? What about the M&P Subcompact?

  4. Paul H on January 26, 2023 at 1:45 am

    Trigger body ppl yall Killin me with the trigger shoe. Trigger shoes are actual Trigger shoes that go onto triggers, they exist mainly in competition type triggers. Please stop! /rant

    Nice Video. For Me, I do NOT LIKE Shorter Barrels, #.3. I PREFER #.5 inch Barrels. They’re To snappy. Also, The Grip width on G19, Over 1.0 Is Perfect. S&W has 0.94 Widths, Not For me. NO WAY. I have Small to medium size hands. I also like the larger mags. 6 -7 round mags are awful

  6. Abe Lincoln on January 26, 2023 at 1:48 am

    Great video. I’ve carried M&Ps for years but just bought my first Glock. A G19, and only because it was stupid cheap under the Blue Label program ($440 with tax out the door).

  7. Jackson Walter on January 26, 2023 at 1:48 am

    Glad S&W released the M&P to compete with Glocks. Back in the day if you wanted a polymer frame, striker fired pistol you either had to get a Glock and later you had the option of getting the Springfield XD or the S&W Sigma if you didn’t want a Glock. However, there wasn’t a serious competitor to the Glock empire (in my opinion) until the M&P came out in 05. It’s been great to see all the variations and updates to the M&P platform.

  8. traca williamson on January 26, 2023 at 1:50 am

    is the slide lock an actual functioning release?

  9. Josh R on January 26, 2023 at 1:54 am

    I just hate the look of the s&w , can’t stand the look of the grip.

  10. Love Like a Hurricane on January 26, 2023 at 1:55 am

    was the rear or was the front sight off on the MP out of the box?

  11. RTree613 on January 26, 2023 at 1:55 am

    Aww man. I didn’t know SW had released the 9mm optics ready compact with the new trigger. That’s awesome. Now I have to get one lol.

  12. TheRancor53 on January 26, 2023 at 1:59 am

    Glocks definitely shoot a bit flatter at speed at least for how it feels in hand – but when I do accuracy check on paper, the 19 is always meh for me. Hits always include a flyer. Glock 45/17 much better for some reason, probably grip size. Paper for M&P 2.0 at 15 yrds I get 🍀 and tighter groups even with the curved trigger of old, 2nd place VP9/P10c/PDP all about equal (but better than Glock)

  13. Brandon Nelson on January 26, 2023 at 2:06 am

    Glocks are killing s n w ??? Wtf 😒

  14. SMJ Martial Arts on January 26, 2023 at 2:06 am

    Great video thanks for sharing this great information!!!

  15. Jimmy Pete on January 26, 2023 at 2:07 am

    Eh, the FN 509 MRD has the best optics system available for under 800 by far.

  16. Devin Krum on January 26, 2023 at 2:12 am

    Yeah, the not plastic and tall sights is definitely a better buy.

  17. *GLOCKWORLD*ON*WICKR on January 26, 2023 at 2:12 am

    Having a gun it a gud idea of safety that’s why I get one from the name above⬆️⬆️⬆️.

  18. Donnel Wilson on January 26, 2023 at 2:13 am

    Glocks, smith and wesson pistols are the elites in the handgun world hands down

  19. stanly steemer on January 26, 2023 at 2:13 am

    Will we ever know your results from your pdp optics plate testing. Not other supposedly testing but your documented testing.

  20. Devin Krum on January 26, 2023 at 2:13 am

    Hey hey hey. What about the Xd. K ill just shut up. I don’t personally own a Xd but the hellcat seems to be much better.

  21. PH3DDY,s Land on January 26, 2023 at 2:14 am

    M&P is the Prince of all polymer and the Glock is the King polymer I love both lol I had my M&P 2.0 for a while and I thought it was taking me away from glock but then I just had the pleasure of picking up my glock 19 gen 5 the refresh model not that moon cut out shit smh, and I’m just in love with glock all over again 💏

  22. Ward Roland on January 26, 2023 at 2:15 am

    Thanks WTT. Great job. Good info. God bless.

  23. G3 on January 26, 2023 at 2:17 am

    The M&P is worth every penny, here’s my dilemma… I’m already heavily invested in Glocks, multiple pistols, mags, etc.
    If S&W would offer some sort of a trade-in/rebate program, I would be all in!

  24. Eli Plays on January 26, 2023 at 2:18 am

    Good job 👏

  25. cz75fanatic on January 26, 2023 at 2:19 am

    Can we ever talk about how the FNS was amazing and completely overlooked at the time. Great grip, great texture, great trigger, came with 3 mags, and offered both thumb or no thumb safeties in the day…. at a similar price.

  26. T W on January 26, 2023 at 2:19 am

    What about the FN 509 MRD?

  27. James Galbraith on January 26, 2023 at 2:20 am

    In my opinion you can’t lose with either firearms but my preference would be the Glock only because of its history/reputation but like I said either or will get you out of a jam 👍👍

  28. Cozmik Drip on January 26, 2023 at 2:20 am

    Got both. Love them both. The M&p is solid and quality. The gen 5 is lighter and of course Glock quality

  29. Joshua Goheen on January 26, 2023 at 2:27 am

    This is the best comparison video. Features are one thing but how does it shoot is what mostly matters to me. Recoil especially

  30. Eddie Pereira on January 26, 2023 at 2:30 am

    Glock everyday and twice on Sunday. Nice video Work.

  31. FtwRogue on January 26, 2023 at 2:31 am

    2.0 3.6 is perfect but the SD9VE is the 🪶👑 thinnest/lightest loaded reliable dirt/hollow eating compact out, keep internals STOCK perfect TRAINER/SAFE trigger out shoot it smooth 😭by time u find Glock 😎, 🎨Fsight/big dot the backplate stipple n sand the trigger pad/frame to pref,EDC download to SubC/SS cap 9-12rds 🪶😴 better than 🛡 your EDC needs extended mag market nowadays crime come in 3s with 30s 😭

  32. Waterhead 1 on January 26, 2023 at 2:33 am
