Ladies and gentlemen,
I return!!! Hope everyone is well and I guess I missed a bit of drama, but I digress. I left Iraq on 8 June 2010. At the Baghdad airport, while waiting on my flight the airport was hit by three very close mortars! I actually had no idea the Iraqi insurgents cared that much about me. Oh well, there was no need for fanfare at my departure, but I really appreciated it. Those Insurgents are so CRAZY!!!
Anyway, back to guns...I have not picked up my EMP yet, because I need a Florida driver's license and other things so I can become a resident. However, I went to the gun (pawn) shop where it is being held. I got a chance to hold it, get a feel for it and just generally check it out.
It's the Springfield Armory EMP (.40 caliber) and it felt great, sights looked good on it, great balance and for anyone who does not have huge hands, this gun is a great fit! The weight is a bit more than I thought it would be, but by no means heavy. It felt SOLID. I can't wait to pickup and fire. I should be able to get it end of next week or so after I close on my house. I can't wait to finally get settled. After 2.5 years in the middle east it is good to be home. However, the three burka clad women in Eglin BX today was a bit disconcerting...it really surprised me!
Once again...hope everyone is well and feeling great!
Also: I picked up and felt the Warthog from Para Ordnance and also the Para P14/.45...felt great too, I can see myself back to get some more hand guns.
