New Kimber owner.

So I will be the owner of two new kimbers in the next couple of weeks, a brand new pro carry HD 2 stainless, and a gently used custom 2.
I have heard everything for and against kimbers especially in the rust department. I have owned some 40+ handguns over the last 10 years, and have never had a gun rust on me. I have owned several 1911's and currently bought a Remington for my son for when he turns 18.
But these will be my first kimbers, I just wanted to talk to ACTUAL Kimber owners on their experiences. I personally love the feel as does my wife and we want to make sure we are making an informed decision.
Thanks again
Ps im not trying to start a flame war. I just want opinions from actual owners.

I think you will be happy with your decision.I shoot a Super Carry Custom HD,and I am in a very humid/damp environment.I have never experienced any rust problems on my Kimber or on any of my other weapons.Just keep them clean,lubed,and oiled and they'll be fine as frogs hair!Good luck!

I bought a Custom Crimson Carry II last year. This year I have purchased a Super Carry Ultra Plus and also a new SOLO for my wife. I have several wheel guns and a Colt XSE 1911. I will purchase a pro model sometime in the future when funds allow.
I like all three but the solo is so easy and simple to carry. The SUCP is also a great pistol in my opinion. I like the shorter barrel and full size grip and magazine.

I may not have owned mine long enough to develope any "Rust" but I keep them cleaned and oiled.
ACCURATE, ACCURATE ACCURATE, is about all I can say. Very Happy.
