The EMP 9mm is an awesome pistol. You'll be very happy with it.
The only thing I didn't care for was having to put a clip on the guide rod to capture the recoil spring. I think that's what it was, it was some years back. All I remember was that take down was kind of a PITA because of that.
BTW, for EMP money you can get a good basic 1911 in .45ACP as God and J.M.B. intended and
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” ― Samuel Adams
