New Carry Gun

For quite a while, I've been carrying a S&W 649 in .357 magnum. Great little gun, I love it. Been thinking ID like something about the same size, but with a few more rounds. So I got a Springfield Armory EMP in 9mm. I've had a bunch of 1911's, so I'm no stranger to them. Anyone here have any experience with an EMP?

I put 200 rounds through it Monday and it shoots better than I hoped it would. Tight groups, great trigger and good night sights. Zero issues, went bang, not click, every time.

Can you post a pic next to your Smith?
You'll probably never NEED a gun. I hope you never do. But IF you do, you will need it worse than anything you've ever needed in your life.

"I'm a good guy with a gun" What do I care if I give up some freedom or rights?....The Goverment will take care of me. This kind of thinking is now in the majority and it should concern you.

EMP may be my next gun

Last Saturday, my wife and I went to the Springfield event at Athena Gun Club in Houston where we got to shoot pretty much all the guns Springfield makes. We went back and forth between guns and both agreed the EMP was our absolute favorite.
We have an Springfield XDM 9, which I love, but that little EMP was just so smooth and accurate, it will probably be my next purchase.
It's a lot easier to buy a new gun if my wife likes it too

If a pair of '51 Navies were good enough for Billy Hickok, then a single Navy on my right hip is good enough for me . . . besides . . . I'm probably only half as good as he was anyways. Hiram's Rangers Badge #63
