I am on the verge of purchasing a Springfield EMP, and the only thing holding me back (well, besides the price) is the size/concealability of the EMP. Does anyone out there carry it iwb with just a t-shirt or two for cover? I am 5'11' 160 lbs, so it's not like there is a lot of flab to break up the outline :) I know this is a bit of a newb question, but I really don't want to dump $1100 into it only to find out it is just a bit large for EDC :) Thanks!

I'm about your size and I have no problem with my xdm compact. An EMP would be a breeze compared to that.
Just buy some dark colored or printed shirts in a larger size than you normally wear. To make it even easier, there is a thread here somewhere of a guy you can send the mags to that will remove the factory baseplate and replace it with a flush fitting one.
Those EMPs are SWEET! Go for it!

I carry an EMP OWB in the summer under a dark t shirt.:shock:;)

Go for it.
I'm very happy with my EMP...:cool:

Yep. It wears and conceals very well. Sweet shooter too. Preferred carry is OWB holster, but works well with my MTAC IWB holster too. Lightweight means I don't notice it on my hip.

1lowlife, that is one good looking EMP! Just came across some more pics of it, that muzzle crown is crazy! I like it.

Thanks for the input, although alas, I have decided the funds are just not there, maybe someday...
I sold 3 guns to buy the EMP and have it customized. :shock:
No regrets what so ever..;) :cool:

The EMP had been on my list of desired pistols for several years before I finally purchased one. It fit the same IWB holster I have for a Kimber Ultra CDP II. The weight and size make it comfortable to carry during warm weather.

It gets hot here in the high Sonoran desert. No problems carrying my EMP 9.
I just picked up her big brother yesterday, an XDm 5.25 9mm. Very nice gun in every way!
