I'm not a big fan of the 9 mil, but then I'm a revolver kind of guy anyway. I would think it's hard to go wrong with S&W in any form. There are people on here that are very knowledgeable in in autos and most likely will give you some much better opinons and insights than mine.
Welcome to the forum and hope to hear more from you.
P.S. there seems to be a number of reviews for it on youtube.
