What is the most accurate Kimber

I got a Kimber Crimson Ultra Carry II for Christmas. Yes I had been very good. Anyway I took it to the range the other day along with my Ruger SR 1911. I was ready for the difference in accuracy. I thought surely the full Size SR 1911 with its 5 inch barrel would be much more accurate than my Kimber Crimson Ultra Carry II with its 3 inch barrel. I was pleasantly surprised at how accurate the Kimber Crimson Ultra Carry II was. I had slightly better accuracy using the laser but while using only the gun steel sights, I still kept most groups within a 3 to 4 inch diameter circle. Granted the SR 2911 was more accurate but not by a lot. While it does have a little kick, I found the Kimber pleasant and fun to shoot. I shot around 200 rounds an the Kimber performed flawlessly. I feel like a young kid that just got his first kiss. I in love at first shot. I have ordered a OWB belt holster an an IWB holster for my new Kimber. They will be shipped on Jan 21.once they arrive the kimber will be my new EDC gun. Here is a picture of my 1911s.

Nice couple of .45's. The Ruger was going to be my choice when I bought the Kimber. However, I was looking for a carry gun and I have a couple of Hi Powers. Not much sense in spending money to duplicate what I already have, (size wise). I too am very happy with the Kimber, however, I will own one of those Rugers. I just don't know if it will be before or after my next Kimber.

Congrats on the best present ever! I'd like to say that an EDC should have at least 300 down the pipe and about 20-30 of the carry ammo through it before you're (I'm) 100% confident it'll work that one time. I don't want to use my gun, but if I do, I need to know the tool is ready for the job. Be safe. And thanks for posting a pic.
