As others have already said, try before you buy in order to make sure you get a gun that's comfortable for you to shoot.

That said, my wife has a full size M&P 40 and we both like the gun. The adjustable grips were a big plus for her, but I also find it to be a good fit for my hands. I wouldn't get to hung up on choice of caliber - with the right round all the choices are reasonable for self defense. I would say that lately it seems that .40 is a little more available than 9mm, but that's probably not going to stay that way forever.

The M&P 45 is 4.25" and is light to carry. The 9mm compact is 3.5". I carry the 45 most of the time but when wearing a tee and shorts the 9mm is a better choice. If Dad will buy you a Kimber if you quit smoking, first your Dad is a good guy and wants to give you the best. Second give up the cigs as they will take your life and get the Kimber it might save your life !

If your Dad isn't a member you should get him to sign up, sounds like a guy we would enjoy here.
