Last night I went to the indoor range to try out my new EMP. The 3" barrel and thin 1911 frame makes the handgun very concealable. One big difference in this and other sub-compacts is that Springfield includes a longer grip, preventing the "dangling pinky syndrome." The gun is a comfortable weight to carry and well balanced.
On the range- I alternated between IPSC silhouette and slow fire pistol targets. The gun was controllable for double taps (but I noticed more muzzle rise than my Glock). The gun was very accurate to slow fire. At 50' I shot a 2.75" group using a two hand grip.
I am very happy to report that with 75 rounds of FMJ and 20 rounds of defense loads- 124gr and 147gr. The gun had no feeding or ejecting problems. Every 9 round magazine went without a hitch.
As an addition to this new toy, I bought a Max Con V holster that I'm looking forward to breaking in and carrying!
