Is this the "Glock killer" everyone's been trying to put out?

Another myth, like Loch Ness.

It can't be, the CZ P10c is the Glock killer...

I can't wait for the Kool aid fueled hate to begin on the branded forums.

So, what prompted you to even buy a gun that doesn't fit you in the first place? :confused:

I was 21, new to handguns and really didn't know enough to think about how it actually fit my hand. It's not the most ergonomic but I do shoot it well and out of 4-5K rounds I've only had 1 malfunction from some crappy reload.

Funny,I always thought the M&P was G19 sized,shame on me.....

That 1/4" on the barrel and on the grip just screams FULL SIZE!!!!  I carry a M&P 4.25 just as easy as a Glock 19.

Man , these M&P's are a love/hate thing with me. I love the way they feel but I just hate the fact that you have to remove the rear sight to detail strip the slide. Glock has spoiled me I guess. But the M&P feels  sssooooo nice. I know that function is always more important than fashion but the M&P's look great. Looking at the new Glock gen 5 and what has been done to it and this M&P , I'm gonna swallow my pride and say I'd rather buy the M&P .

I have never been an M&P fan. They just never had a natural feel in my hands. But, the one that did feel right is the .45 Shield. Got rid of my G36 for it, and haven't had one regret.

Huh?  I mean, yeah, if you absolutely want to remove the firing pin safety for some reason?  Otherwise, it's very easy to remove the striker assembly by just turning the slide over and depressing the FPS.

Yeah , I cant help it . It's just a quirk I have and I'm OCD. I love the old Ruger P-Series but they have the same thing to where you have to remove the rear sight for a complete slide disassembly. I used to have the same thing with roll pins but I am slowly getting over that , ha ha. I just like to have a gun that I can completely disassemble with no tools other than a nail , punch or something simple just like the Glock. Its just a quirk of mine and so far Glock fills that need. I still like these M&P's though.

Yeah, there's no doubt at all of the Glock's simplicity when you want to take it apart to the individual pieces.  The M&P fails that on the extractor roll-pin alone. :)

Yeah I'm so happy... I've avoided a glock 19 until a couple months ago... finally bucked up and bought a glock 19 and shaved the finger grooves... a few weeks later the gen 5 comes out... and now the m&p which is what I prefer

Ain't that the way it always works, though? :)

One way of looking at this positively is that you have a Glock 19 now and everyone ought to have one of them.  Now it's just a matter of saving up your pennies for that M&P M2.0 Compact to add to the collection.

That's actually why I ended up buying it... it's the 10/22 of handguns if you're a gun guy you almost have to have one... even if I don't really like it

I think I need a 2.0 in the stables along side a gen5 glock g19 along side a P10c along side a P320

 

Seems fitting ?

One of each, two of many, three of some....

Except it's not Glock 19 sized. Why does the 2.0 Compact use the same length magazines as the full size pistols?

Compact uses a 15-round magazine.  Full-size uses a 17-round magazine.  You can put a full-size mag in the compact but the mag will stick out beyond the pistol butt, just like it does on the Glock 17/19 family.

I am mistaken. Must have been looking at the full size. I had my momentary dumbass flare up.

      Hello everyone,
      I'm doing a quick survey (about 4 minutes) on the gun industry and I'm interested in the opinions of gun owners on various brands and what drives their purchase decisions. It's extremely quick and I’d be happy to share the results with the community. 
      Also, I will be having a drawing among respondents for a $50 VISA giftcard for those interested (totally optional). It's not much but the most I can offer as a small team.
      Questionnaire Link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/GunsFall2017
      The research isn't for any of these companies. Just curious to see the opinion of the brands. Thank you very much for your help!

      Anyone here got one ? Someone recommended them to me and now guns and leather has some in stock. They are expensive but was wondering if they justified the cost. I shoot my $450 p320 preeettttyy good

      I find this pistol has a really good fit/feel to me.
      I have a Kadet kit for it, only problem is it doesn't lock open every time
      Very accurate with it.
      There are many little things I like about it.
      What is your experience?
