    Never shot the M&P, but between the Glock and Ruger, definitely the SR9c. Not saying it's a better gun... just better for me. Dead-nuts reliable and accurate, ergonomically WAY better for me than the Glock.

    I do hope to experience the M&P soon, but got other fish to fry first (SR45, Sig P290, something in a wheel gun).

    I carry the SR9c every day....
    For me, it is great.
    But any on your list would be fine-whatever suits YOU !

    I carry the SR9C every day and love it.

    I went with the SR9c. It's my primary CCW, and I love it.

    My second choice of these would be the M&P9c.

    I prefer the G19 & G23 > the 26 & 27. I carry my G23 on occasion.

    Had to fix that for you. lol

    You will be hard pressed to find a gun more accurate or reliable than the G26.

    Remember, how a gun feels in the hand is not a good indicator of how it will shoot. There is no alternative to learning proper technique and shooting them all to see what you prefer. I think learning proper technique first is very important. That way you won't be comparing guns when holding them in the way they were not designed to be held. This could have a huge bearing on which gun you choose.

    Made the same comparison, went with the Ruger SR9c. Fits my hand better than the Glock, much better trigger than the M&P (in my opinion). On me, it conceals incredibly easily (better than the Glock 26 on me) under just a t-shirt.

    I also love that, even though it's a compact, it shoots as well and accurately (and softly) as any of my full sized 9mms.

    Carried it daily for 2 years, have 2500+ trouble free rounds on it.

    My EDC is an HKP2000SK and I am very happy with it. Out of the options mentioned however, I would go with the Glock. My G20 has never failed to go bang despite a huge range of factory and hand loads fed through it. I think they are among the most reliable autos on the market.

    Me? S&W.

    Best for you? Who knows. Try them all out.

    Tried all three and went with the Ruger SR9c. Felt good in my hand, liked the overall design, and thought it was just right for me.

    I wouldn't own any of the guns listed. I don't like the safety mechanism on the Glock or the Ruger SR series. I don't like DA only guns, except as a pocket pistol. S&W is not what they once were in anything. Can I interest you in a Springfield?

    Real tough call between the S&W and the Ruger. I've owned the Ruger, and it was a very nice plastic fantastic. The S&W always looked atractive to me, but I've never shot one.

    I'm not a Glock Guy, so take my opinion with a grain of salt.

    Of those choices, I would pick the Glock. They are all good choices, but the Glock has the least amount of extraneous safeties, chamber indicators, buttons, latches, etc.

    I've never shot the Ruger, but people seem to love them.

    I'd like a explanation for that, also.

    Pick the one with the best trigger in your mind.

    Probably the M&P. I love Rugers, just not a fan of the Sr series, and don't get me started on Glocks.:barf:

    Probably the Glock.

    I'd like to consider the M&P -- in fact, I love shooting them -- but I'm having a real hard time accepting some of the things (reliability issues) I've seen with altogether too many of them that pass through my observation in competition.

    I've seen a few of the Rugers. I haven't shot one. They seemed to have a lot of safety gizmos and such that would be a turn-off for me. Having watched the few shooters that show up with them at our practices deal with mag safeties external safties and such, I don't imagine I'd ever even consider one.

    Wow...that sure is a load!
