Have you considered the XDM 3.8 Compact model? Almost identical dimensions but holds 2 less rounds. However it does come with the 19 round mag as well. May be a good option there that you can carry and still used for IDPA.
FWIW, I had a M&P9 that I carried but wanted something smaller for warmer weather and I also have a G17. The grip height on the M&P was the same height as my G17 but the slide length was a tad shorter. It was more akin to my friends the G32 (same size as G19). I ended up letting the fullsize M&P9 go to fund my Shield
