I ran across a Springfield EMP at my local shop. Man did it feel sweet in my hands. I don't currently have a 1911 style gun, but after fondling this one, I can understand why there is such a following. I guess I would consider myself a 9mm guy so this EMP has got me jonesing. I would like to hear about the EMP, Para Carry 9, Kimber Aegis, STI's models, and any other manufacturers. I am curious to hear about people's experience and opinions of whose is the best. Tell me any down sides while your at it! Thanks!
