Geez can't the M&P get any love around here? when you're out check them out. You may still like the Glock or the XD afterward, but at least pick it up shoot all three if possible pick what fits you best........ like a M&P (damn I sound like a Glock fan boy) ;-)
Sorry need to stop speed reading, yes get a 9mm its cheap its useful and good gateway round. You really need to hold some guns before buying and if at all possible try to shoot some even if it means delaying your purchase a few days if not go to the shop fondle what's at the shop and go with what feels best for you.
My pistols, however, I always kept by me.
