Also picked up a Smith and Wesson M&P9c a couple weeks back:
I actively dislike the fullsize M&P but the compact is a peach and one of the few 9x19mm pistols I really like. The large backstrap feels really good in my hand despite being the grossest in the fullsize. But none of that matters because my wife immediately claimed it after she took a turn at the range. And she likes the small backstrap which works okay for me.
