    Alright. This one is for the resident 1911 gurus. I have owned Springfield's milspec and a Glock 30 - that is my experience with .45's. I carry a Kahr k9 IWB almost always and a glock 17 JIT with a jacket.

    So, once again I am Christmas shopping for others and can't help myself from pawing all the beauties behind the glass ;)

    Kimber seems to have caught my eye with their Crimson Carry in .45 of course but I was also intrigued with the 9mm in the 1911 platform.

    Anyone have experience with Springfield's EMP or Kimber's 9mm? Both seem to get outstanding reviews for the most part.

    This seems like the place to ask such things. (chances are I will go with the .45 as BG's stop with a dinner plate in them...)

    Thanks Crew and I hope Santa shows up sober and brings you what you asked for!

    Both are excelent firearms. Price should be about the same for both. I own the Kimber so I would say get the Kimber, you will never be sorry for that purchase.
