Sooooo I have been doing a lot of research and watching videos comparing the 2 ... It seems mainly there are about 2-3 common consensus points I have seen ... 1) M&P wins because it holds 1 more bullet in both setups (7-8) and with mag updates could hold 9 + 1 2) M&P Wins with price point and some basic upgrades to make it better still keep it under the Glock Price 3) Glock wins because Glock Now, I am going off personal opinion and would give the quality/reliability to the glock. However, I am not sure just how big of a margin that would be. To me .. if you take out the bias of #3, the Shield seems to win in 2 major categories, possibly ties or narrowly loses in a 3rd. 1 & 2 - Capacity and Price - Shield 3 - Reliability - Glock .. possibly narrowly behind is the shield Now I love all my glocks, especially my G17, but I am not dumb enough to think glock is the best gun in the world for every model and niche. So would I be crazy to choose a shield over the G43 to carry? Thoughts?
