Wonder if ignorance such as this could have been responsible for many of the early negative postings on the Solo's?

The above type genius is why I visit Net Forums. You never know what golden nugget folks will come up with.

For the right price people are willing to do all sorts of stuff that they ordinarily wouldn't, including carry a gun that don't work.

Ladies and gentlemen of Kimber Talk, what's your price?

I too, am one of the lucky ones who has a working Solo; however, the concern would be for those novice people who ran out to the Gun Store and became smitten with the looks of the Solo, purchased it, loaded a mag with the cheapest ammo they could find, and put it in the top drawer of their nightstand.

Hopefully, they will never need to use it.

Yes, and add to that, read the manual on proper cleaning ( keeping oil out of the striker channel ).
Reading as much as you can about any gun you plan on using for self defense is always a good idea.

I'm closing this thread only because at 138 posts it's been around the block 3 or 4 times and accomplishing nothing. Feel free to start a new one.
