    EMP vs Para Carry 9

    Anyone have hands on experience with either or both of these guns? Which one conceals better? Which trigger do you prefer? Any input is greatly appreciated.

    my vote is for the emp.
    they conceal about the same. i like the emp trigger WAY better. im not a fan of the para trigger at all. but thats just me.
    i have the kimber aegis (very very similar to the emp) and carry it every day. shoot it every other day. wouldnt trade it for anything

    I've heard great things about Springfield customer service, but much lower opinions of Para. For my money, I'd get the EMP!

    I think I would buy the EMP. The Para looks tempting enough, but I wouldnt spend a nickle on a Para right now.

    I own (and carry) the Para 9. I've heard a lot of issues with Para but I have not had any. I have no experience with the EMP but looks to be a nice weapon.

    In the end it is your decision to make. I think you would be satisfied either way.

    I would say the EMP. Personally, I prefer the single-action trigger. I bought my EMP about 8 months ago and the reliability has been flawless.

    EMP....My Para 9 was a Jam-O Matic, so I traded it in. I was not happy with it at all.

    I read a test and it's EMP the winner.
