My guns are tools. And tools need to function when called apon, period. Their are numerous brands that meet this reliability requirement. What sets the M&P line apart is the ergonomics it has while being reliable and accurate.

Hell yeah! I find it amazing that we can all agree on something, even though we each have a particular reason (or many) why we carry, own, and shoot such a versatile piece of equipment - as said about.
I don't like referring to my M&P as a gun, weapon, or anything along these lines because they are broad terms for my life partner (;companion, wife, best friend
These apply more to me!

My hand told my head "buy it!"

The M&P9 was top of my list going into the LGS. But I tried a Glock 17 Gen 3 first and then a CZ P-07 Duty. So when the M&P9 FS met my grip, I was both surprised and pleased. It just felt GOOD. American made, with all the features I had on my list (and great reviews). But the feel in my hand sold it in moments. An M&P9c joined it three months later.

The grip is very comfortable and Smith & Wesson has a nice military/law enforcement discount. I can buy a new M&P full size or M&P compact for $400 with my retired military ID.

That's a great discount! I would take advantage and buy a new one every other week - that's cheaper than my rent

Same for me...I can hardly pick up my Glock 21 now, as it feels like I'm holding on to a 2X4.

1. Ergonomics. 2. Ergonomics. Personally I think any pistol that ain't a 1911 is ugly as sin. That said, my MPs feels like it was custom made for me. I love shooting them.

I guess, in descending order, from most important, to less important:

- Reliability - Squeeze = Bang, every time. Gun is not much use unless it does this.

- Accuracy - 12" groups at 25 yards / 75-1X on a NRA B-8 is the best I can do "now", and I know the pistol is capable of better. A gun that goes off, and then shoots where I point it is a big deal.

- Ergonomics - Gun just feels "comfortable" in the hand to hold and fire. Not meaning the run down a Glock, but I never could get use to that pistol's ergonomics. I would include the S/M/L backstrap of the M&P in this.

- A quality product i.e. melonite coated slide, all steel sights and guide rod.

- Ambi-Features - As a lefty, I appreciate the reversible mag release and ambi slide lock

- American made - Kind of important to me.

- Ability to take down without pulling trigger/backstrap retainer doubles as frame tool.

- Looks and appearance, last. Honestly, I think the M&P looks pretty good, but this not a real critical factor to me.

My 0.02 anyways...

OP, you just about covered it except for price. Not only are they dependable, ergonomic, aesthetic, and concealable, but offer great value.
