Sig P365, it must be purchased on the secondary market (Private Party Transfer). You will pay double the retail, but I loved shooting it. We put about 400 rounds down range, not a single malfunction and it's super accurate. The P365 is the size of a glock 43 with a 10 round capacity. I own a G43, and G19, but will be selling both to buy a P365. Yes my shooting friend is LEO. No he won't buy one for me. Yes, he's still my friend.

Cz p01 for carry
Cz sp01 for shtf
Cz kadet to convert sp01 to shoot .22lr so you can train with the same frame while recovering. The kit comes off easily and the sp01 is a great shooter.

I have an EMP on my permit because I have one. You cannot go wrong with PPQs. While others will probably not recommend it, I carry a S&W SD9 VE. It fits my hand well and although the factory trigger is awful, a $21 Apex spring kit makes it a different gun. I also shoot it fairly well. From what Apex states, the SD Action Enhancement Trigger improves it even more.

Really? You're gonna extrapolate to the whole population of EMP 3's the unfortunate experiences of a few? Not only is it logical fallacy, it's prejudice defined.

Keep this is mind: were SA to alter EMP 3's (modify design flaws) CA DOJ would consider it a new handgun requiring new testing, meaning it couldn't pass micro stamping law, meaning it'd be taken off roster.

My "repaired" EMP 3 is 100% reliable. I doubt that you own a handgun as reliable as my EMP 3.
