    I've never ever heard of one in GAP. Only in 9 and 40. The only alternative is a Micro Compact 45ACP.

    I like the look and feel of the EMP. Seems like a nice pistol, especially for a compact 1911.

    This is my wife's fotay, it shoots great! We put 450 rounds of 165gr Gold Dots through it on its first trip to the range without any malfunction. Probably has a couple thousand through it now.
