First time

Went to a new range to shoot my S&WShield, as I was checking in I saw that they had a Kimber Ultra Carry II to rent. After shooting the Shield for a while I went and got the Kimber and a box of Federal 230 Gr ammo. Long story short, I loved it, I couldn't believe how accurate it was. It's not a plinker but is still fun to shoot. My first experience with a Kimber, it is going on my Christmas list.

Kimbers Ultra series of 1911's make excellent carry guns and as you've found out they are amazingly accurate.

we here know too well of the vibrating wallet. My wallet starts to vibrate when i wake up and know i'm going to my local gun shop. or looking on line at 1911's. Kimbers especially. Buy that Ultra before you think on it too long... Go for it...

Been a few times that I have got it planned out and go get a gun I've been wanting, more often I find something that is neat and interesting and just get it spur of moment. Oddly, I have never bought a gun at a gun show.

LMAO, "wallet is vibrating" now that's funny. Only a matter of time now, I bet you don't wait until Christmas.

Welcome to the site from Tennessee!

"I shot an Ultra and I liked it!" wish I had a dollar every time I've heard that statement.
