    Well, good news. After talking to John Harrison for a few months, I came up with a build list and he's just waiting for me to send my EMP to him.

    Bad news, he said it's going to take a few months, and this is my only carry gun. :crying: So cry me a river and pray that nothing happens! Also, to add insult to injury, it's going to be about 50% more than what I anticipated in the beginning. :faint:

    HD-005 rear sight
    Fit and Tune new extractor
    Flush fit extractor
    Re-crown flush
    HD slide stop
    HD short trigger
    Front strap checking 25lpi
    Ed Brown single-side safety (tactical)
    Carry Bevel
    Countersunk slide stop
    Round Butt
    Refinish matte black DLC (everything)

    And lastly, I have a set of Horned Lizards with mag release ramp cut ready to go. Actually, I've had these for a few months now but they are cut for SS safety so I have to wait.

    I haven't even sent it in yet but man I can't wait to get it back. :rofl:

    And one last thing, I hate all of you.

    Thanks everyone. I've gotten a few comments about why I'm spending so much on an EMP when I could be in Wilson territory.

    Simply put, it's what I envisioned the EMP to be, and I know John will make it happen. I honestly don't see myself getting another 1911 anytime soon, and I don't see myself carrying another 1911 either. Besides, I would have to sell the holsters I bought, plus the EMP and everything else. :tongueout:

    Murdered 3" EMP, what more could you want? :rofl:

    Just sent the gun out today, so hopefully it won't take forever (but I heard Ionbond takes a while). I'll be sure to post pictures obviously, as soon as I get it back.

    Now if I only had another 1911 to carry. So with that said, I'm taking donations until the EMP comes back. 3-4.25" 1911's only, any caliber 9mm+. PM me if interested. :tongueout:

    Don't forget harsh language. :rofl:

    You'll let me borrow the GBOB for a few weeks? I've got an empty 4.25" VM2 and a handful of 9mm GoldDots at the moment. :whistling:

    I don't know how well those Gold Dots will sit inside that VM2...you might want to ducktape that hole in the bottom so those bullets won't fall out.

    I hope you can throw those Gold Dots with some accuracy. Might want to visit the range and get your pitching arm warm up, until when you can be part of the 1911 club... :rofl: :tongueout:

    OK, but only if I get to throw some bullets out one of my 1911...I'll even use a smaller bullet, and borrow Quack's 22 conversion. :tongueout::supergrin:

    On a side note, Quack said he was "soon" sending his EMP off to the Custom Shop for some work, and that was back in January 2010.

    So what's the deal!? I guess they won't touch those fugly flat triggers.
