From my very limited experience with it, the M&P 9C was an excellent shooting pistol. Very accurate. I'm sure you will enjoy it.
Still waiting for my bought & paid for M&P 40C. I was told it could be as long as 3 months before the received a S&W shipment. Possibly longer for M&P 9Cs. I'm presently armed so not a big thing with the deal I got - With the LEO/Security/Military discount it cost $455 with Trijicon night sights, 3 mags, the store might throw in a holster & I might get a further $50 Military rebate from Smith or $50 in accessories (if mags are available I might opt for that or put it towards a MM barrel & mag).
My son turned me on the M&Ps. Both of us are Glock guys & he has my old duty G23 & a G21 of his own but he told me about the M&P 40 he was issued at the Police Academy & loves it. He still loves his Glocks, though & uses the G23 & .45 cal G21 foir off duty carry but his research (& mine) showed that the M&P Compacts are good weapons along with the store & possible manufacturer's Military discount made it a no-brainer.
