    Got to take the EMP out for a spin and when I got home these were waiting for me! Thanks Brewer!

    Also my FFL works for a security training and executive protection company called Inpax. They hosted Lt. Col. Dave Gross man today for his "Bulletproof Mind" seminar. He gave me an extra ticket he had ($100). This seminar was mind blowing, so expect an AAR of sorts soon after Ive had time to process.

    In other news, the EMP is shootng about 4" high at 7 yards with my handloads and with 124gr +p gold dots. Off comes the 10-8 and on goes the Novak. Or since I like that setup, maybe on goes a 10-8 front sight with correct height. The gun is a real pleasure to shoot and conceal, and is very consistant, just a tad high. Im very pleased with it. Need a few more Logman mod mags though.

    Nice goodies.

    I've heard good things about his seminars but haven't been to one yet. Looking forward to your review. :smilie:

    Check it against normal factory ammo first. Then check it with your reloads. My results varied quite a bit when I was experimenting with different loads.

    I found 124gr Precision Delta, 4.5gr Win 231 at 1.140" to be the best I've tried so far. I'm going to switch to MG 124gr CMJ with VV 320.

    I'll post pictures later. It could be my loads I'll admit, but I was shooting factory Speer Gold Dot as well.

    I was putting the tritium not in the u-notch and aim from there.

    Not a big deal either way, I'm very happy with the gun.

    I only shot 115 grain factory ammo. I just lined the top of the front sight up with the top of the rear sight. Kinda like a black target sight set up.

    Mine was off about 3" from the factory. My front sight is .191 and my rear is .375.

    Same here, but Trent still shot high with the factory sight on my old EMP.

    Congrats on the gun! I just changed my sights out as well. I was needing to hold at 6 with the factory sights, so i did Dawson's calculations and went with a .140 FO front from him, and .375 10-8. That should get me settled back in hopefully
