    I've personally alway's been a Springfield guy so the EMP suits me just fine in either 9mm Luger or .40 Smith.

    Although I still carry a full size 1911, sometimes.

    I donít like polymer guns so
    1. I went looking at the kimber line of 3 inch barrel pistols. The dealer actually said. "I would like to sell you a kmber .45 in 3 inch but they are totally unreliable and would recommend a Sig in .40 or even the p238 in .380" the .40 cal sig is still pretty big and the sig p238 feels way too small in my hands. I love the feel of the kimber.
    any thoughts?
    2. How about the Springfield EMP in 9mm any thoughts on that?

    My goal is to have (in order of importance)
    1. Reliable
    2. Concealable
    3. Something that is small feels right in my hand
    4. Either 9mm or .45
    I'm a 1911 guy and I'll say that either or the Kimber/Springer should do ya right.

    I don't get what the sales guy said. All I can say is, the Ultra that I have must defy the laws of averages then, cause it's been running from day one, right outa the box without a single problem. It's been said that the three inch 1911s are a little picky, but I'm thinking it's mostly from folks that would have similar problems outa a commander sized 1911 too. I could be wrong, but my Kimber has no feelings to hurt, so if it wasn't reliable he'd be sitting in the safe.

    I've had a Kmber Ultra CDP II for over two years and fired a variety of ammo in it without any problems. I prefer to use Wilson magazines but the kimber seemed to work. The pistol has suprised me as I didn't expect the accuracy it has with a 3" barrel. I haven't fired the EMP but those who own them seem to be satisfied. If they were a problem, I'd expect to find used ones available.

  8. Great gun

    Ok put 200 rounds thru it had 4 failures to feed which were quick remedied by a quick re-rack on the slide. It could of been me with a bit of a weak grip those times. I did a quick 7 rounds rapid no problems.
    Also at 17 - 20 yards I was putting them in about a 6 inch groups if not better. So far the gun is sweeeeet!!

    I had a kimber ultra carry that did a lot of failure to return to battery until i put about 700 rounds through it, after that it was completely reliable. Shoot yours a little more and it will break in just fine and there will be no issues
    We would be better off with BORAT as PRESIDENT!!!!

    I have a Colt Officer's ACP in .45 and it's small enough to hide and is great to shoot with lighter slugs 165-185gr vs. the 230gr. Accurate for 3.5" barrel.

    New custom made holster that looks as comfortable as it feels makes it easy to carry IWB. I've been carrying it OWB for a short time and wanted to try it IWB.

    I've had the the Kimber Ultra Carry with the 3" barrel for 12 years - love it. It's a little on the heavy side when loaded, but I'll trade that for the "knock - down" power it has. Ammo is a little pricey, but I had considered that when I purchased it. A state trooper friend that buys large amounts of ammo at wholesale, and splits it with me, which is usually 2500 rounds. It's the gun I take to the range monthly and shoot 200 rounds and feel quite comfortable with this handgun, it's truly a gem.
