I think a lot of gun owners get hung-up on shooting their carry gun like it's a Bullseye completion gun.
You hit the nail on the head Phil. The K6S is not a Target gun, nor was it designed to be. Reasonable accuracy should be expected, but not precision accuracy. I shoot mine primarily at 7yds, and get 3" groups around POI offhand with 158g LSWC Bullets in 38spl cases and Titegroup Powder. I hope that eventually Kimber does make a Target Worthy Revolver in the near future.[/QUOTE]
I have no doubt the K6s is intrinsically accurate. As to if the grips, sights and DA trigger pull work for you, that's a whole other question.
It's possible the OP got a lemon but more likely something about the sights, grip or DA trigger is not agreeing with him.
I do not know if Kimber has different height sights available for the K6s. It would be nice if they did so the gun could be roughly zeroed for a given load and distance.
I agree with those though who say to treat the gun as a defensive revolver. It should be very doable to keep your shots into a fist or desert plate sized group at reasonable distances. Once you can do that.. work on speed...and reloading. Work in some one handed and weak handed DA work. You never know exactlly the scenario you could be confronted with so prepare for less than ideal conditions as well as ideal.
There are plenty of challenges to being good with a short barrelled DA revolver and my humble opinion would be to work at getting better at that type of shooting. The K6s is very well designed for in-close defensive shooting.
Or...buy a different gun more suited to the type of shooting the OP wants to partake in.
