    Springfield EMP.
    I do not have one but have heard many positives about it.

    I have a SA Ultra Compact Light Weight 9mm, the gun they discontinued in favor of the EMP. It took some gunsmithing to get it like I wanted and to get it to feed hollowpoints reliably, but now it works right and is much more comfortable to carry and shoot than the same size Colt OACP .45.
    But if you don't have to hide it out, the full size gun is a better shooter.

    One of my shooting buddies has a 9mm EMP. I loves it. I will have one some day.

    I have two compact 1911'a in 9mm. A Para Carry 9 and a Kimber Ultra CDP 9mm. Both are accurate, reliable and have functioned 100% for me with any ammo I have tried. Accuracry is about equal between the two, but the kimber is my favorite just because of the look of the pistol.

    I have a CCO sized 9mm and love it. I have also shot the EMP, very nice gun. My lgs has one at a good price that I've been thinking of picking up.

    I have a Kimber Ultra Carry II in 45. Another officer has the identical one in 9mm. He loves his. Stainless with night sights. I might just get one. Feels like a 22.
