Kimber Heaven

Spent a couple of hours at my favorite gun shop today. He is not only a Kimber Master dealer, he has become a Kimber distributer. Dan the owner told me that to become a Kimber dealer requires an up front purchase of $22,000. A lot of small shops can't afford to do that. Now that he's a distributer, they can buy what they want from him without the large investment. Sounds like a winner for smaller gun shops to me.

Being a master dealer/ distributer, the shop has a huge inventory of Kimbers. I fondled pretty much every model. He had six stainless Solo's and 10 Micro's and sold them all within a matter of days. He's got more coming along with six Saphires.

Sportsmans Stop is the name of the place. He doesn't have a web sight but sells a lot on Gunbroker. Here's a link to one of his adds. Click on view sellers other auctions to see some of his inventory.

I can only dream of having a dealer like that around me. Kimber used to list their master dealers on their website but they no longer do that, they just list dealers. Does anyone know where you can go to find out who their master dealers are?

Their price on the SCUHD is not that great, @ $1,470.

Maybe not Heaven but at least "Kimber Glory Hole."
If he gets six Sapphires, he is indeed the "King." Most dealers I have talked to have ever only had one or maybe two Sapphires ever.

Guarantee it's not "if" but when. He said two are already sold.

His prices are pretty close to MSRP, but he sells a ton of Kimbers.

I paid just over $1600 for mine at Cabela's last month - no one else in town had one.
