Well if you've heard of any good customer service experiences, I'd like to hear about it because I really like their Warthog. I've heard a couple people say the pins on their sights came loose and Para refused to send out a new pin. Suggesting the owner ship the gun, at the owner's cost, for repair.

I know nothing about Para, but find it really odd that the biggest gun shop in Charlotte really doesn't inventory their product. Seems odd.

Springfield EMP is 3." My Impression is that an "Officer" is Less than 4".....

Just another recommendation for the EMP. My EMP 40 is my everyday concealed carry. 1500 flawless rounds.

That's good to hear. I was worried my EMP .40 will be a little heavy for EDC. Guess I'll find out for sure when I pick it up tomorrow.

I'm also liking the STI Guardian which is about the same weight. 32 oz is pretty impressive for a 4" steel frame.

The EMP is a really good pistol. I've shot them in a 45 and 40 and really liked them both. Anbd I just don't think one can go wrong with a Springer

The EMP doesn't come in 45. The whole gun is designed for the smaller rounds. You might be thinking of the Micro Compact.
