    I have the identically-sized M&P40c and it's a sweet shooter. It's my primary carry and handles both the .40S&W and .357Sig (with Storm Lake barrel) with a mellow recoil much like the Steyr M40. It's not nearly as snap'n'flippy as most other .40S&W compacts I've fired.
    For what it's worth, I didn't notice a lick of difference in recoil between my M&P40c and a friend's SR40c using the exact same ammo (165gr Ranger Bonded). Both are quite nice.

    I'd imaging the M&P9c with its lesser recoil impulse would be an absolute peach.
    I paid around $510 pre-panic era, so the price you've listed seems quite fair.

    Personally, I think you'll love the SR9c. I'll admit I've never shot the M&P, but my SR9 has been flawless, trigger was great out of the box, and ergos are excellent.

    It IS your money and you need to feel good about how you spend it.

    I'm late getting into the game but I hope you shot both guns before deciding.

    That's how I decided to purchase my M&P.

    The 9c is an outstanding pistol. Go for it.

    +1 on the M&P. Mine has been my EDC for years. It has well over 10,000 rounds fired and it has been nearly flawless. (one FTF on the second magazine, I don't know why). It still shoots and feels like new. Some people whine about the trigger but I like it much better than the Glock's. I haven't tried the Ruger. Mine started to feel a little soft around the 8000 round mark so I did install a heavier trigger return spring and an APEX RAM. Contrary to popular relief by the M&P detractors working on the M&P is really easy so if you want to change parts or tinker with the trigger its not hard at all.

    All said and done my M&P 9C is the one pistol I have that I will not part with, ever.
