Last week I bid the lowest possible amount amount on a Kimber Solo DC(my personal favorite) on GB. I have had experience with these little beast, but I can't help loving them for what they are.
As soon as I discovered I won the auction, I went to my LGS and acquired three 6 rd mags. I then went to the local flea market and acquired a few boxes of premium self defense ammo at flea market prices.
Today, I went to the range. I had stuffed the three mags I got last week with ammo to soften the spring. I also took the time to clean the gun prior to range and put a pretty good wetting on it. Checked all systems, and left for the range with high hopes!
I shot 20 Federal 147 and 20 Federal 124 self defense premium rds and all hit paper with extraordinary accuracy and flawless operation. I then shot 50 124 NATO, again super accurate and without a single flaw of any sort! I intentionally limped wristed twice and got brass in the face.
So why am I cautiously optimistic? The last Solo I had ran well for about 120rds, then the safety screwed up. My first Solo Carry, went back to Kimber after I discovered the slide eating into the barrel. So, Weather permitting, I have some 124 Federal HST (my carry favorite) and 124 American Eagle that will see action in the morning. I gotta say, the [email protected]
#$ nature notwithstanding, this is an awesome little beast! As I shot this gun, I remembered why I like it so much. I am keeping my fingers crossed.
