Its debatable ^^^^as you can see above
having owned both the M&P and the SR9c
I can say I prefer the Ruger over the M&P,its built better
it has a way better trigger and it was quite a bit less money
So when you say Advantages I see the Ruger as the one on top
Some will argue in defense of the M&P - but IMO S&W should stick
to revolvers ...
