RBR762,
I've used skateboard tape on the front strap with great success. Try giving that a try while you search for a smith to checker your front strap.

I've had to use the technique that Totally Tactical describes and another time; just cocking the hammer, once the pin was removed, got it started for me.
Good luck, it's got to come out.

Randall:
I've seem that before and don't really know how it got there, but as you said it's not a big deal.
Enjoy your EMP, they're great little guns.

Randall G:
I painted the base plates of my Log man magazines with Rustoleum flat-black. It took a couple of coats on a sunny day and they now match the rest of the gun.

Because the Mustang has a shorter grip frame and a shorter slide/barrel, it may be better suited for pocket carry.

JakeM,
You may want to take a look at the 3" EMP in 9mm. It is hard to beat for an EDC; small, light, thin and reliable.
Also, don't forget about the 4" EMP with the bobtail frame if the size...

EARL99208;
I replaced the ambi thumb safeties on my EMPs with strong-side only safeties. The EMP uses a standard sized 1911 thumb safety.
