The appeal of baby 1911s
That is a nice looking gun, and I am impressed with your description of how well it shoots. I have been fascinated by the 3 inch 1911s myself for quite a while.
I believe the first one I saw was maybe 10 years ago at a gun show, where a dealer had a Kimber Ultra on display and I got to handle it. I had seen Colt Officer's models, but this gun was shorter in the barrel by 1/2 inch - 3 inches for the Kimber vs. 3.5 inches for the Colt. I knew that the velocity of .45 ammo would be reduced somewhat from that short barrel, but the concealability of the gun was exceptional. When you combine the natural thin slide of a 1911 with a short barrel and grip, the gun is close to being a pocket gun, except for its weight.
One small drawback would be the thickness of the grips, which can be significant on a 1911 with the standard "thick" grip panels. But with the availability of "thin" grip panels on the market, you can reduce the grip width on a 1911 down to just over 1.0 inches, making it quite concealable in that respect.
I finally bought one of these baby 1911s myself last year - a Colt Defender. After a few small modifications I have been quite happy with it, and it runs perfectly and conceals easily.

Congrats! The EMP caught my fancy until I laid hands on a Para Ordnance Slim Hawg, which is currently my EDC. That isn't to say I'll one day add an EMP to the collection. Happy to hear it treats you well.

Yet another great report on the EMP. Just more than I'm willing to pay for the gun. Maybe I'll find a nice used EMP at some point.
