I was at the range still breaking in my mil spec (which is doing fine) last week when the guy next to me has a stainless milspec and a EMP 9mm. he let me shoot 3 rounds through it. it's so little. you can't really guage how big it is from pictures alone, but once you actually hold it and see that it could fit in a shirt breast pocket it's actually kinda neat. That same session was my friends first time with a handgun, his first shot ever ripped the 10 in half. pretty cool.
