I have 3 different caliber M&P models and love them.
I also love my Beretta Tomcat Inox.

Seems the love is for Glocks and Sigs but I feel the M&P line is a very good value when of course discounted.

The M&Ps are great, if today's version existed when Glock got the strangle hold on the LE market it would have turned out different. Still a lot of agencies carrying M&Ps though.

I have the Gen I Shield 9mm no safety. I tried on the Glocks but, they didn’t feel good in my hand. I’ll take an M&P any day over a Glock.

Thanks for the replies, guys. Nice to read some positive posts.
I have the Shield 2.0 PerformanceCenter version. Really a very nice handgun with a nice trigger.

My wife loves her 380 M&P EZ Shield too.

S&W discontinued the M&P Shield? If so, news to me.

I like my Shield. It's a 1.0. Can't beat the price on the 1.0.

I like my M&P 9 Shield v1.
I bought it right when the 2.0 came out, so got a good deal on it.
I know a lot of people gripe about the trigger on the original, but I have no issues with it.

I have never had a desire to own a Glock. Shot a few different models that belong to friends and just don't see what the fuss is about.

I just picked up a version 1 Shield on sale at a local big box for $279.00 - $50 rebate = $229.00 including tax. Hard to beat for such a good pistol.
I still prefer my Glocks overall however for sheer durability and ease of complete dissasembly.

I've owned a gen 1 Shield 9MM and a gen 1 M&P 9MM. Both are serviceable, but ho hum guns. They both are long gone.

I have a gen 2 M&P 9MM, and I far prefer it over the gen 1 model. I do really like this pistol. That being said, it will never replace the numerous Glocks that I use for home defense and conceal carry. It mostly just sits in my safe, although I did use it in the night stand for a year or so.

No love here for the M&P Shield 2.0 9mm? Should there be a love for the Shield? I don't own a shield but have shot the 9mm often and the 40S&W once and they are my favorite in the class. Gun choices are all different to different people.
