Bud's was, as usual, excellent in every regard. Since I have made quite a few purchases recently, I have been told that this gun is to wait until Christmas before firing. So, I'll comment on everything but how it fires.
This is my third 1911 and I purchased this one primarily for concealed carry. I love my Kimber Ultra Carry II, but this will easily replace it as my everyday carry (come Christmas). I prefer the 9mm for everyday carry and my Beretta 92A1 is a bit heavy and bulky. I have a couple polymer 9mm handguns, but nothing fires like a 1911 (except maybe, a 92 series Beretta). My Kimber will now be my nightstand gun. This EMP and it's two extra magazines will be a perfect carry gun.
I know this is a "back order" item, but don't let that discourage you. I asked at my club and other FFL dealers around, and they had no idea when they could fill the order. I also shopped for it at gun shows for over a year and could only locate one .40 caliber version. I ordered it from Buds in September and it was at my local FFL a month later. Great gun, Buds is great, and my local FFL is great (Quatermaster Police Supply in Newport News, VA).
Absolutely the last time I'll have to purchase a 1911 (that's the story I'm telling my wife). :)
