This is my suggestion for modifications and equipment for an M&P. Just for those searching in the future.
Gun setup for USPSA Production and IDPA SSP: (As told to you by an SSP Master with multiple first places at State Championships and a highly competitive A in Production)
(When you ask seven experienced shooters about equipment you'll get EIGHT different answers. So don't take the above as gospel. As long as you focus on basic modifications, then leaving the gun alone and maximizing your trigger-pulling time in dryfire and live fire, you'll do fine!)

Remember to have FUN! Don't lose that aspect of shooting.
You don't need to modify anything in USPSA and I suspect the same is true with IDPA. So just have fun. Eventually you'll figure out if you need to modify things and what you need to modify.
It's not the bow... it's the Indian.
For many years I competed in various disciplines with a POS $250 1911 (AMT Hardballer) that I worked on myself. When I bought it it wouldn't shoot anything without jamming. I got HUGE enjoyment when folks would come up to me with much more expensive guns than I was shooting and ask me, "What is that that you're shooting!!??", as they would also tell me how close together my double tap was in the A zone. And no, I'm no master shooter. I shoot for fun and I don't work at the sport.
My point is not to get hung up on gear. Get what you need to be efficient at first. Later you'll figure out what you need or want. It's not the gear that puts the bullet in the A zone; it's you. The gear just facilitates it when you're ready to accept it's help. If you're not ready the gear won't make you ready.
At least that's my take on it. But again, I shoot competition for fun.
At this point I would be sure to get a handgun that fits you. They'll all work if you stay with known models. Also look into the support you have with after market parts and such. You can do much worse than an M&P. Look at the model #10098. From that model you can go into any division except revolver in USPSA by modifying it. I'm presently in Carry Optics by putting in an unported barrel (and adding a red dot sight).
But maybe I didn't give you what you wanted for an answer.
