The Itch Begins

There's someday and maybe, and then there is the time when you say "I'm gonna do it!" Once you say that, you start thinking about it all the time...you know what I'm talking about. THE ITCH. Or maybe The Bug. Whatever, it requires scratching.

I'm scratching. I've decided to start saving my couch money to buy a Royal II. My question is: have any of you bought one or seen one. I'm sure they are awesome shooters, but what I am wondering is what they look like for real. Kimber takes great looking pictures for their web site. Is the real thing as pretty as it looks in the pictures? It's not like you're going to see a Royal II in your LGS.

I wants it.....

The gun itch is non curible and the only known remedy is to drain the bank account a bit and get what you desire.....

Talk about a pair of BBQ guns wow. I've always loved the look of both guns but the classic carry pro would be my first choice of the two. In a way it's good that the odds of finding one in my LGS are next to nothing good because if either one or both were to suddenly appear there I'd find a way to take them both home.

Yep. I unfolded the wish list and the Royal II had made it to the top. And it was circled. And underlined. In red.

Chuck, since I have a Pro, and I'm not a fan of the bobtail look, and I want a 5-inch Kimber....that Royal is saying "you know I'm the one!"

Btw, what is the BBQ reference? Q as in safe queen?

In Texas and some of the western states when someone throws a BBQ on the weekend it's customary to break out your fanciest gun and holster to wear to the event. Hence the term BBQ gun.

Ha! Thanks. I like that. As a man who lives South of the Mason-Dixon Line I've heard many good quotes, but that one is new to me.
