Smile Super Carry Ultra HD is in the house

Received the call this afternoon. I am now the happy owner of a Kimber Super Carry Ultra HD. She is so gorgeous. Very smooth edges with the carry melt. I love all the checkering, very subtle but very attractive.

She's tight as a tick. Justin, the LGS smith broke it down and inspected it for me. Governor's Gun Club has the best customer service!!! All they get out of the deal is the $30 FFL fee. But Justin spent lots of time with me evaluating the gun. He found some small blemishes on the front, right corner of the frame but it may clean off. At first I was bummed but it barely noticeable. If he had not found it might have taken me some time before discovering it. Justin had to help me get the slide lock back in place. This gun is super tight and I was afraid to put an idiot mark on her before I even got her home.

Photos and range report will come. I've still got some other stuff to do before I can play with Suci. I need to get her clean and ready for her first range outing tomorrow. I may tackle that in the morning.

Anyway, I've been shooting my mouth off about this gun for quite some time so I figured I owed y'all a status report.

Yeah, well where is the picture? What else is on your Gunbroker watch list, now that you've popped your mail order cherry?


Congratulations!

Congratulations! I know the feeling of waiting for that special gun and finally getting it. Very exciting. Hope you have a great range trip tomorrow. Slingshot her!

Got it!

Suci.jpg

Had other stuff to do, but just couldn't wait till tomorrow to give her her first cleaning. Putting that slide stop in is a biotch! I'm so afraid I'm gonna have an idiot scratch very soon.

Anyway, I absolutely love the way it feels in my hands. Can't wait for range time tomorrow.
