    I’ve had mine for almost two years. Didn’t have an opportunity to fire one prior to the purchase, but I was able to handle one at a local gun shop. Fit perfectly in my hand, so I was obliged to purchase one.

    I've only shot three EMP's. None ran reliably.

    I bought mine off the show-room, took it to the range and put 150 rds. of WW and Blazer throught it without so much as a hick-up. Bought a box of Remington JHP and it was FTF city, so I called Springfield to complain and they said that I could send it in for warrenty repair, but suggested I put 400 to 500 rds through it for break-in and see if it was still jamming. Well, at the 350 rd mark I shot JHP's again and lo 'n behold I only had 1 FTF. I'm now at the 500 rd mark and it's eating everything I feed it.

    I bought a new EMP last Friday, without shooting one first. Took it to the range Saturday morning. I did clean and lube it prior to taking it to the range. I had feeding problems with the first two or three magazines of ammo (tried three differnet kinds of ammo). After that, it performed flawlessly and I ran close to 100 rounds through it. This is a great little gun that I will be carrying soon. Still need to run a few different kinds of ammo through it and become proficient with it. Then, I fully expect it to replace my XD9 subcompact as my conceal carry weapon of choice.

    I had read many great reviews but I would never want to buy it sight-unseen (no pun intended!)

    The range where I shoot actually had a rental so I went there to shoot a few hundred rounds and that made up my mind that it was accurate and comfortable in my hand. By pure luck they had one in the case when I was done shooting. I had already looked "everywhere" (the internet) and couldn't find one so I snapped it up. The price was high but that is the reality if you are impatient like me. If it is reliable it will be my carry piece since since my other 9mm is a full size.

    Good luck finding one, but try to hold/shoot it first to be sure you like it before shelling out $1K for it.
