    Does anyone have one of these? I handled one the other day in 9mm and thought it was a pretty cool little carry pistol.

    Very nice carry and has been faultless. I have had mine since 5/09. Nice shooter, very accurate and has eaten everything fed it including all self defense ammo tried. Carrys very nice in a Galco QS212H which will handle all size springers up to 5".

    I like the grips on your EMP. I was going to buy a Glock 26, but I changed my mind & just ordered an EMP 9mm from CDNN this morning (they will ship it out on Monday). Now the wait begins...lol. Hopefully it will come w/ a loaded coupon so that I can get some extra mags.

    It is in their email sale notice that they send out. You should sign up for them, they send the good deals out by email before the catalog is printed.

    Ahh! Yer the guy that bagged it..
    While on the subject of the EMP.. Springer 'Locktites' their ejectors now instead of pining them. Mine started to get a small amount of play in it, I pulled it out and pined it. This has been a small problem with manufactures that now use the locktite and it can cause the slide to not go into battery or lock up. (nothing a rubber hammer won't cure) Some have sent their pistols back to Springer to be pined at Springers expense when the ejector loosens up. My new Loaded's ejector is pined in from Springer so maybe they have changed it?.

    I had one of the first production EMP's in 9mm. It was a very accurate pistol for its size. I really enjoyed it, but wished it had some sort of checkering or stippling on the front grip.
    If you are comfortable with the manipulation of a thumb safety during FOF use, then its a great CCW. Since I carry a Glock 19 on duty, I had trouble transitioning to the thumb safety and decided to sell it.
