Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois Cubbies. We're going to need a little more information then what you've given us. Is this a new gun, were you shooting it when this happened? If it's a new gun then call Kimbers Customer Service. If it's not a new gun, is it all original or have you replaced any parts in it. Did you have the gun apart and find the grip safety wouldn't depress after you reassembled it?

Welcome to the forum, how about stopping by our "New Member Introduction" sub forum and introducing yourself to the membership?

There are some good utube vids out there to show you how to take the gun apart & put it back together correctly. Not brain surgery, just make sure you do it step by step. Something is out of place or broken in the handle of the gun.
