Rescue Kimber

I posted awhile back about finding a rescue Kimber. It was an EDC that was not really loved and had been involved in some training scenarios that resulted in some cosmetic damage. I bought the little fella and brought him home. With some love, kindness and a makeover from Robar in Phoenix, he is back to being an EDC (as he was born and bred to do) but in a much more loving home.

Fight me if you wish. But remember, I am old for a reason.
