Have a Kimber revolver on order

I'm on a list at my gun store of people wanting a new Kimber revolver, I was told they expect them in, in May, I talked to a friend that handled one at the Vegas Shot Show, and he said it's an awesome little gun, and well made, for being the first time he ever shot it, he was very impressed with how smooth and accurate it was, it handled the 357 cartridge with ease, even though the 357 is a hand full , he said it was very manageable , this gun should make a great carry piece, all edges are rounded and snag free as well as the sight being snag free also, I'm looking forward to the day it comes in, not that I need it, but I just want it, it's a sickness I have...at least I'm honest...

I saw a u tube video on the new revolver, Kimber rep had it out on the range during the shot show. Looked great and it looked like it handled very well. Waiting for one to come in to my LGS for an up close on it. I think it's listed at 899.00

As "sicknesses" go, think of it like this, yours is cheaper than a CT scan or MRI

Well guys thanks for the comments, like I said I can't wait, as for price, one of my gun shops told me it would be $850.00, but the place I'm getting it from should be much lower, I'll let you know as soon as I do, Going Solo, you have a valid point, taking care of my gun illness is much more fun than going to the hospital LOL, also, I haven't posted photos here yet, but as soon as I get it I'll give it a shot...
