First Range Day

Took my brand new Master Carry Pro to the range and I was not disappointed. Started with 1 Wilson Vickers, 4 Kim Pro and one stock mag all loaded with American Eagle 230 gr hardball. Dropped slide using the release as I wanted to see if the gun had any issues going into battery and started shooting. The trigger breaks like glass and the gun hit point of aim with maybe a touch left windage. Next I loaded 50 rounds of the American Eagle sysntech lipstick ammo and it to functioned perfectly but seemed to hit just a touch low at 7 yards. Finally I loaded all the mags with Federal 230 gr hst hollow points and again the gun just kept sending them down range. Couldnít be happier with the performance.
My only complaint is that the checkering on the grips is really sharp and made for some unfortable shooting as the day wore on.

Nice shooting silverbullet, if the checkering continues to irritate your hands you can use some fine sandpaper to smooth it down a little.

I am envious of anyone with a nicely curved butt. On a Kimber 1911 that is! Good looking Kimber keep your powder dry and your aim true.

I ordered the Kimber based on my past experience with their long guns. Researching the web kinda shook my faith with their current products. Couldnít be happier with this round butted beauty
