Maybe I'll Keep It After All

bought my Kimber .380 Sapphire on Gunbroker and wound up with the original spring and guide - Nightmare! No clue how Kimber ever let them be shipped. My first Kimber and they made my fecal roster right away. I'm really used to getting disappointed by gun manufacturers that market and advertise but don't deliver reliable products - you know the ones too. We learn by experience. Did get the new spring and guide installed.

I really really really like my Colt Mustang....I also like BBQ guns...so I bought the Sapphire as my .380 BBQ guns. Was at the range today trying out a new 1911 pistol and thought I'd bring the Kimber along too.

Turns out I shot 36 flawless rounds and the aim was dead on. Reassuring. Will try some more this weekend.

With all the photobucket insanity thought I'd see if a pic of the Sapphire would upload from my computer.

I just called Kimber and they sent me the new spring and guide for free! Two one for each of my micros.
