Opening and review, of my Kimber TFS SOC DW

Ok. I'll make this clear. I am not a professional at making vids. I suck. Let me make that clear. I SUCK!
Deleted the vid but left the targets
Shooting OTC ammo at 11 yards. First pic (after bad vid) is the first 5 shots from the beauty.
Second Pic is a new target with 21 rounds fired. I love the accuracy with this baby. With the balance, same recoil as my 9mm. Not crazy about the red dot and will probably scrap it as it gets in the way (even though it looks great).
Will be putting a few hundred through it tomorrow.
No issues at all. No FTE, FTF or anything else. Ran flawlessly.
One complaint is only one mag from Kimber (cheap bastards) but picked up a better looking kimber mag earlier knowing this.

Sorry about the pictures being sideways and the video being off centered. First time trying the review vid and it shows. Attached my Iphone to the end of my extendable work lamp.
Looking forward to a day of shooting tomorrow. Will limit to the AR/AK and this baby.

Long Ago

Well in a land far, far away a long time ago...Kimber's used to come from the factory with "2" magazines.

Congrats on the new Kimber.

Nice shooting and the video sux.
Word of advice IMHO of course. Unboxing videos are lame.
Video taking gun apart, show guts, show shooting, not lame.
Good luck with it!

If you are referring to the laser, (red dot?), told ya it was a waste. Now you can have more options for holsters. I think you mentioned leather but in any event, make sure holster maker leaves room for the higher sites.

I agree but I had never done one and debated with myself on yes or no. Common sense lost...Ha!.
The laser looks great but it gets activated by accident every time I grip my gun. My index finger naturally goes to the activation lever.
