    need a favor NW Alabama

    I have a desire to buy myself a Springfield EMP .40 and I have my eyes on one at the moment but I would like to shoot a couple of mags through one and see how it acts in my hand before i spend $1200 on one so if there is anybody close who doesn't mind letting me try theirs out i would be grateful for the opportunity and will of course supply my own ammo and if you haven't shot a Shield .40 I will return the favor.

    I don't have one sorry, but have you looked at lgs that have a range, most will rent you a gun, then knock off the cost of rental if you buy the gun. Not sure exactly where you are, but Hoover Tactical has a range and rents guns, and they will refund the rental cost if you buy the gun. Now whether they have the gun you want in stock is another matter....

    There is also BJ's up in Centre, AL, they have a range but not sure if they rent guns.
    ATI in Birmingham also has a range.

    Dude. Are you a 'Straw Man'? Just kidding, really. Hope you find the sweet defensive weapon you desire.

    Pretty weapon, but before you buy it you might want to try a colt agent, or kimber ultra carry 11 both under 1200 same platform but in .45 easier to manage follow ups. Just a thought but good luck

    Semper Fi,
    I will bleed through the nose paying for this one and will never tell the wife what it cost but I'm drawn to the thing for some reason.. maybe shooting it will get it out of my system

    Range is 12 lanes, no A/C but its a pretty nice range. Price is 10.00 to rent a gun.
