Had one and liked it alot. Fairly easy to shoot and very accurate. Traded it because it was just to heavy for carry in my opinion. Have not priced one lately. I still have the nine EMP. You could also try to find a Springfield Loaded Micro Compact 45. Hard to find since they only produce them once a year. About the same price and much lighter to carry. Just as accurate and well made. I bought one of those - was what I traded the 40 for. Love it. Good luck with your search and choice.
