Various family members are pitching in for the gun itself, as a combination Christmas and "you-didn't-flunk-all-your-classes-and-lose-your-scholarship" gift, so I can afford to get something nice. I'll be paying for ammo myself, and 9mm is by far cheaper than .45, not to mention it won't take me as long to adjust to a new round. Hence, the EMP over a Rock Island or Para.

cheaper, more rounds, and its a 45
Unless they have changed there finish in the last year, ... Para's black finish starts coming off as soon as you put it in a holster. It is the worst finish I have ever seen on a gun. By no way does it affect the function of the gun but it sucks. If your going to buy a Para buy a stainless.

this is so true. I have a LDA 14-45 that looked llike it was 10 years old after the first range trip.

OP,
Since you are looking at 9mm. Why not a Kahr or something along those lines?

Of the two you asked about I'd go with the EMP. They are very cool.

But STI offers the LS9, and it is very sweet (I have one). It is ultra thin, so makes for a great CCW. And it is still a 1911 derivative.

Also, as JJ mentioned, the Kahr pistols are excellent and great for CC.

That Warthog sure looks awesome. But i couldn't bring myself to buy it. I bought a full
size kimber custom II for $700 new. I sure would love to have that little guy as a secondary if it were just a little cheaper.

Funny about that Black Para finish..I have the LTC that I've carried for a few years now. It has some wear up by the muzzle and that's about it. Same with the Companion my friend carries. It's the Blackwatch though. Both where bought about the same time give or take a month.

I will only say a,bout Para one thing...Look for used ones. I see displays from time to time at buds. But you don't see a lot in shops or even gunbroker. Must be doing something right. The only used one I've seen around here I bought. It's a P16. Outstanding weapon to say the least.
