I have the 9C as my EDC now and love it. The shield is smaller so it's really about which one feels better in your hand. Have you picked up and fondled both?

M&P's are striker fired.

Forgive my ignorance but that means no hammer so long trigger pull right?

Yep but with an Apex trigger it can be a lighter pull.

No a striker fire pistol is different in that the firing pin is spring loaded. So when pulling back on the trigger you are essentially pulling the firing pin back and when it gets to a certain point the pin is released striking the primer and so on. So basically if you want to relate it to SA/DA then it's DAO but by true definition of SA/DA it's neither because there isn't a hammer.
