The first post?... ok anyway, solo or super carry?

wow, kinda cool that I get the first post but what, is this a new forum site or something? Currently there are 5 members... 2 admin and 3 normal members and all have 0 posts save me after this one...

Well anyway I signed up to ask about Kimbers line up for concealed carry. I have never personally owend a Kimber but I grew up with my dad's and man was that one of the nicest pistols I have ever had the pleasure of shooting. What a nice .45. I have been drooling over the super carry ultra II but whenever I ask to see one it seems that 60% of the time they tell me I need to take a look at the solo. Unfortunatly the solo is apparently a very popular item as it seems that there is never one in stock. So here's the question. Why do I need to take a look at the solo? whats the difference?

Wow this is cool, I have a couple of kimbers. I carry a TLE II on duty and i love it. Done quite a few upgrades-i'll try and get some pics up. As far as concealed carry don't discount the fullsize bobtail. It doesn't sacrafice accuracy for concealability. Plus they look pretty sweet too.

Solo or super carry, I have both, the super carry in a Pro which is the 4 inch gun with a round butt and I really like the gun, its a tack driver with nice balance. The solo is a typical solo it has a good trigger and on a good day it will shoot a seven shot group under 2 inches at 15 yards which is great for a small gun like the solo. The problem I have with the solo is it tends to jab even with the prescribed ammo that kimber recommends. I tell my friends to stay away from the solo, If you want a gun in a 9mm in the same size look at the Kahr for a lot less money. But you cannot beat the super carry.

Just received my Solo today. It is a smaller gun than I am used to. I also have a Glock 9mm. So far, my patterns are further apart than I am used to seeing. Practice, Practice, Practice The gun has worked flawlessly in the first 50 rds.

Solo

I have been looking for a solo here in Las Vegas for about two years, no luck!
My name and number is on several dealers lists no calls. Been told maybe another 6 months wait.
Have a Kimber CDP II love it. I don't like carring it in Las vegas in the summer months, due to heat and in shorts.
In the heat I carry a Sig P238 (.380) in a Remora holster (no clip) works great.
Want the Solo for more power in about the same size as the sig.
Reports are about 50-50 as reliability goes. I know the first year they had lots of problems.
I would like to see any feedback on this!
