    Picking up a gently used Springfield EMP in 9mm

    Have not had the time to do a bunch of research, what are the opinions of these?

    The problem with the EMP's is that they get lonesome. They need a life partner to function properly. So you better send it to me so that my EMP can provide the proper nurturing that is so obvious it desperately needs. :crying:

    Otherwise, it will never shoot properly and you will just hate it...:whistling:

    When I get my Miller Custom GI back from the shop, the EMP will have a friend.

    Congrats! Great little guns.
    That's the best looking one on here........minus the flat trigger. :tongueout: Plus, Quack is quite the photographer. All of his gun pics turn out really well. :thumbsup: Even though none of them are hardchromed...:whistling:

    Those are great looking guns! I was thinking about getting one for summer carry until I realized it was not much smaller than my Ultra Carry II I use during the colder/coat months.
