I was considering one of these a couple of years ago but found a number of negative threads concerning it. Did some more browsing last night and it seems that Springfield has the bugs worked out of it.
Got totally turned off about the Kimber Solo after reading 90 % negative threads about it and after actually trying one out last week. It just did not work.
I have some really neat Sigs (original 228, and 239 in 9mm and several others in .380, .40 and .357 Sig) and actually handled a P290 yesterday.
I left the store yesterday (after handling the P290) with sort of an empty feeling; or "HO HUM!!", you know what I mean.
Did buy a LC9 Ruger last week just to try it out and that little bugger really works.
After paging through some of my old magazines last night, I started to read up and do some internet searching about the EMP 9mm. Boy, this is really a classy looking gun with a neat production story (you know, starting from scratch/blank piece of paper, etc.).
I sure would like to hear about any first hand/owner experience on this gun since I am about to call Springfield and place an order.
Thanks ahead of time for the info.
