For you guys who own one (or two :steamed:), do you fire +P ammo?

I have seen yours before on other forums, it definetly contributed to my decision.

How often do you shoot +P? I read a lot about people calling SA and being told it is ok to fire +P as long as it is not a "steady diet" - what is considered a steady diet?

Quack

steady diet = mainly shooting +P

i shoot +P out of it maybe once a month or 2 to cycle the ammo.
i think my % of +P to normal ammo is <10%

Hey Don, how often do you carry the EMP vs the Brown?

Congrats Brz....the EMP is a fabulous pistola. I'm debating replacing my 9mm HK with either an EMP9 or a 9mm Trojan at some point.

i've carried the EMP most, or it's in the glove box.
it's light and don't really notice wearing it in a VMII.

Thanks hookie, I've been wanting a compact 1911 for the longest time and never warmed up for the .45acp. I am very excited!!!

I've shot Quack's and aside from his KC, it's my favorite of his bunch. It's smoooooth and cheap enough to shoot a lot. Win-win.

Hey, let's not get carried away here.

I'm just waiting on funds for mine...I already have a VMII waiting for it. :rofl: Pretty sad...:faint:

Grats!!! Oh and a FYI: Don't look at any work John Harrison or SA custom shop has done...because you'll want something done!

Quack - have you ever tried Winchester Ranger T 127gr +P+? If so, how did it handle?

Quack
11-23-2010, 18:22
nope, haven't tried Ranger-T out yet. i have a lot of GD's still, so don't think i'll switch anytime soon.

my EMP got an initial couple hundred rounds with the 127 +P+, probably 120 or so a year in addition to a lot more standard pressure. No problems of any kind so far, and no peening, cracking, or other indicia of excessive wear.

FYI on +P+

I love that gun Quack. :thumbsup: I just wish it had a 3 hole trigger. Then it would be perfect. :tongueout:

So...I go to buy my EMP today, and guess what? The dealer sold the ONLY 9mm EMP they had!!!! :steamed: OMG was I pissed. :rofl:

It's all Quack's fault too. /rant

I hope you guys have been having better luck than me!!!

Anyone know if it's possible to order it straight from SA to an FFL?
