Showing off the new gun - Springfield EMP 40
4 Attachment(s)
I picked this up last Saturday and ran 200 rounds through it on Sunday.
Not one flaw during my outing.
I plan to run some HP through it this weekend and figure out what feeds / shoots best. I am also trying to decide which IWB holster I should order.
Anybody already have / carry this gun? I would love suggestions as to HP and holster that have already been known to work well with this gun. It would really save me from burning up cash doing the old trial and error process.
Right now my primary is a S&W 642 in pocket so there is a huge learning curve on holster buying.
Thanks for any help you can offer up.

The pics
- My new baby X2
- It hanging out with my Ruger P95 and S&W 642
- Target after rounds 51-100. Shot at 15 yards (I love this gun)

Looks like you got yourself a nice shooting 1911 there. I don't own that model, but I have several 1911's and love them all...

Awe that's cool. If it was black polymer and said Glock on it you'd have a keeper!

I am kidding. I had a Springfield V10 that I loved but gave it to my dad (guess I love him more). I don't know what year the V10 was discontinued, but yours appear to be the same size. It shot better than my SA 1911 and my buddies Kimber Pro Carry.

Keelhauling-- is more like it. :D

Very nice 1911 platform. I like the bi-tone-- looks like the little sister to mine.

I'd like to own one like yours but I don't think its "allowed" here in CA. (AKA Commie-fornia)
Once again nice pistol--

Nice, I've been looking at them but there pricey. How much did you have to pay if you don't mind me asking?

Enjoy that rascal! :cool:

I read that the Bianchi holster for the Colt defender will fit this gun. I have one (EMP 40 ) on order and expect it at the end of the month.

I love the EMP's. You lucky dog you. I hope to own one very soon.:D
