My EMP 40 has been my EDC for a year. The steel frame makes it shoot better than my Ultra CDP. The weight disappears with a Milt Sparks VM 2. And most importantly Beltman stiffened 1 1/4 belt. ...

You cannot beat the Wilson Combat magazines. They were much more reliable than the factory magazines that came with my Kimber.

I am using a Milt Sparks VM2 and Beltman belt. It is comfortable all day. It is heavy for the size. The weight makes it more comfortable to shoot, compared to any Ultra I have used. The 9mm may...

A break in period is understandable. But my car has hopefully been proven safe before I drive it home. As others have mentioned some gun owners will never shoot 500 rounds. They presume that their...

In general, I agree with the other comments, alloy for carry. But, I traded my Ultra CDP for a SA EMP40. The compact steel frame just feels right. And it is comfortable everyday in IWB (Milt...

I did the same for a while. I liked the P938, but sold it after a few months. The size was kind of awkward. The extended mag felt better, but printed in my pocket. Now I carry my SA EMP40 in Milt...

I had similar problem with my Ultra CDP. Kimber CS told me to call back after 500 rounds. It was also suggested to run it dirty. I thought about trading it in. More than $1k and 250 frustrating...

My Seecamp 32 is a favorite. Practically a handmade gun and hard to find when I got mine 20+ years ago, and expensive. It is designed specifically for Winchester Silvertip ammo.

Micro in Milt Sparks VM2 4"

I am buying a Milt Sparks VM2 from a friend. It was made for a 4" 1911.

Is there any reason it would not work with my 3" Ultra?

The Starfires had been stored in my safe. But, I gave 10 of the 20 to the range officer, after they fed only 50-75%. They were a little tight to eject. It was not worth trying more than once.
