    Neither because barrels are too short.

    My son has the 45 micro and I have the EMP 9mm. Sorry I can't speak in regards to the EMP 40. Both are great weapons. Nice fit & finish and seem to be flawless after break in period of approx. 300 rounds. My son loves his and I love mine. The short barrel makes for a " Nice compact CCW packages" in my opinion. Both guns are very accurate to boot. What's not to like! I'm sure the 40 is just as nice as the other two.

    I can't speak about the Micro .45, but the EMP 9 will out shoot group wise alot of fullsize .45 out there if the shooter is up to it and the correct ammo is used.

    EMP-9

    no to the .45 because it may have feeding issues.
    .40 is a bit snappier for a small gun.

    I have the Micro .45 and the EMP 9mm. If a 9mm is too light for your taste, and the .45 a little too stiff, then the EMP 40 might be your choice.

    I can tell you that the Micro .45 is accurate, but has a stiff recoil with more barrel flip. It takes me a lot more practice to bring it under control consistently to shoot as tight as the 9mm. The EMP 9 is very pleasant to shoot and extremely accurate.

    I prefer the 9mm because I have a lot more confidence in my ability to hit the target accurately and consistently. With modern cartridges, its a 'man stopper' in my opinion.
