+1 on the M&P9 ... I carry one also ... nary a problem here either.I carry an M&P 9mm full size. It is a fantastic pistol, thousands of rounds through it, not one ftf or any other problem whatsoever. The grip feels very natural, and my shooting has improved over when I carried the Glock 19. I have never fired the XD, but I would have no problem recommending any M&P, due to my experience.
