9mm M&P vs. 9mm Px4--Which one, and why?

If you were going to buy one or the other, just for the fun of it, which would you get, and why? And don't suggest a glock for the "polymer frame/metal slide" kinda pistol.

Tanfoglio/EAA Witness - gun will last you a lifetime, is a proven design and is incredibly accurate and dependable.

Take Care

To me, they're about the same -- great ergonomics, etc -- except for the SA/DA action on the Beretta, which I prefer to the DAO S&W. However, I've shot both (although they were in 40cal) and neither would be my first choice for a new pistol.

Looks like the Maw and Paw are strolling away with this one:neener:

I prefer how the M&P fits my hand better than the Px4.

They're both very good guns, so pick what fits better.

The Cx4 9mm carbine can take the Px4's 17 rd mags
not like that matters...

Basically the same dimensions with a slight edge going to the M&P for overall size and sight radius. Same capacities, same adjustable backstraps....... Recoil should be less with the PX4 (barrel design) and the trigger is very nice (haven't tried the M&P). You can convert the PX4F to a "G" model by yourself. I also like the looks of the PX4 a lot better as well.

perhaps just my opinion but the despite the fact that the m&p I shot fit well in my hand, it felt soft. squishy if you will. I did not like that and all. I promptly went back to my kimber :p

If I were going to buy a poly gun, it would be a P2000 :neener: But from your options, I'd go w/ the Px4 just because my hands really like the Beretta ergos & I'm kinda hit & miss w/ S&W

To clear something up, this isn't my "first handgun" or anything, just a potential "first auto"--at least the first (only?) poly-framed, if I do decide on one.

Yes, a 1911 is in the pipeline; yes, tanglifo's designs are awesome, i plan on picking up one of each at some point; this is more tentative. Cheers!

And steelhead--something tells me you might just be a little biased. :P

I've shot the storm Pistol on 3 seperate occassions. It is "okay," but really like any other standard DA/SA with external hammer. Nothing great about it.

Haven't shot an M&P yet.

Personally, i'd have to recommend a Walther P99 with the A/S trigger (be aware that there are several trigger options)

That finish look's great. I have not seen another like it yet!

I think that the M&P is going to have a longer life and be better supported and the Beretta. I also find the M&P to be more ergonomic and generally a nicer pistol to handle.

I love my M&P. Very svelt for the overall package, especially compared to the size of the PX4. My son shoots the M&P in Production class ipsc, he loves it big time. Its got a sweet trigger job and is amazing. That being said, however, the PX4 is on my to buy list. I'm thinking the PX4 would be a fun Production class blaster.
