What's Next?

Most recently I purchased my very first Kimber, Master Carry Pro! Finest looking handgun that I have ever owned. As the sickness set in I now realize I must own at least two more! I can settle on what one will be next?

I really like the Master Carry and actually thinking of the Master Carry Custom, then I will have "daddy bear & baby bear"!

However, I really really like the "Team Math II". I enjoy my range time and I think this would be the ultimate weapon for the range.

If I was able to locate a decent price on a used one I would also consider that route depending on condition and usage.

Just don't know what to do?

Buy as many as you can find. Shoot them all. Sell the ones that don't tickle your fancy. All it takes is money.

Hang around this place long enough and your wish list is going to get bigger and bigger.

Take a look at the Gold Match as well. The main difference that I can see is the front strap checkering, which the Custom Shop, or a good local resource, can add for you, and it might save a few $$'s. If the checkering is not that important, you're even further ahead. I have a Gold Match and it is a great weapon, and the Stainless is just great eye-candy.

OK, since you appear to want a serious suggestion.

If I had $0.02 worth of knowledge about Kimber and 1911s when my wife and I purchased our CCCIIs, I would have passed on them and purchased one of these.

Just throwing this out there, this is the full size Kimber that I want. Hold your breath when you look at the price but keep in mind it has a lot of stuff on/done to it.

I'm with Insta-Gator. I had next to no knowledge on Kimber until I shot my 1st purchased Stainless II. I joined a few forums and now I favor the Raptor line and currently own every model in both color choices except the Micro Raptor which my friend just purchased. I'll have to wait for the production of that particular model. I own duplicates of the Pro's and Ultra's. I own over 20 Kimbers.

It's a curse of an addiction that my wife doesn't mind me having. She has a few of her own. These are my favs.
