Time to buy a new Kimber

Over the next few weeks I will be adding a new Kimber to my collection. It will be in 9mm but I haven't decided which one Has to be 4" barrel but can't decide between the Tactical proII or Pro carryII which I would have to change the sights to be something I can see. What do you guys think.

I think yes, go for it!

I really hate posts like this, it's like asking which girl you should marry or which car you should buy. It's just too much of a personal choice, take your time and look them over real good, go to your LGS and handle them and if you still can't make up your mind buy both of them.

I say you sleep with both of them, then drive home alone in your new car.

No, wait, that wasn't the question.

Tactical Pro is the right answer.

They are both Kimbers with 4-inch barrels and aluminum frames. They are the same gun with the exception of the grips and the sights. The tactical is $300 more. Sights cost about $150 and for the other $150 you can buy most any grips you want. Seems like you can't go wrong either way.

I bought a stainless Pro Carry II, put on Heine Tritium sights with a cocking shoulder and change my grips when ever the wind blows, it would seem.

As has been said, the PCII is a great gun. If the Tactical's upgrades like front strap checkering, trigger guard checkering, a mag well and such are important to you, it's less expensive to get them from the factory then to add them later.

Yeah, I didn't notice the mag well. All the upgrades together would be more than the extra $300. So, you have to ask yourself, "Do I want those upgrades? Well, do I punk?"

Wink Let Me See.....

Well, since I'm spending your money, v35b, I say that you NEED (read want) the Tactical Pro II!! The extra cost will not bother me at all and you will enjoy all the extra bells and whistles!! You deserve it. Go ahead and splurge!!!

Hope you enjoy "our" pistol!!!!

I would go with the one that makes my liver quiver when I pick it up. its usually anything with a trigger. so good luck and let us know.

Ah, the old "visceral response" selection method. I can accept that.

Having sold one of my Sig .45s I need to replace it and I want to stay in something like my CDP Pro II but in 9mm, as my hands are getting worse.
