While I've never heard of any serious issues with the Ruger SR line of guns, I won't own one. The SR line has an internal key lock, magazine disconnect, and a manual thumb safety. To me these features are superfluous and I loathe extra junk on my defensive guns. The lock and mag disconnect complicate the gun's design and can serve as failure points and I just don't trust them. Some people like the idea of being able to disable the gun by dropping the mag in case there is a struggle over the gun. That's your call but I prefer to not have it. The manual safety I'm just worried about it getting bumped on or forgetting to disengage it. Lots of training would circumvent this but as I said before, I just don't like extra stuff on my gun that doesn't need to be there.

So for those reasons my gun of choice is a glock. I don't own an M&P but I would not hesitate to own or carry one. (without the optional mag disconnect or thumb safety of course)
