Sapphire

Was out looking for the Christmas present "From: ME/To: ME" yesterday and I stopped into one of my LGS haunts. There on the top shelf of the Kimber display case was a beautiful new Sapphire Pro II 9mm. While not being a big fan of the 9mm cartridge, I will admit that this is a really classy looking pistol!!! This could very well be the first factory made barbecue gun!!!

I have a .40 S&W to 9mm conversion barrel for my Smith and Wesson M&P40 full size pistol. It is a ported 5" barrel and looks pretty mean extending out the front of that M&P!! I got it because it gives me the ability to shoot cheaper 9mm ammo at the range.

If I have stooped to that level, maybe I'll even lower my standards all the way and pick up the Sapphire!!! Sometimes the price of cool is very steep!!!

The Sapphire is a beauty! Get it. I've wanted one ever since I saw it.

The Sapphire is a uniquely beautiful weapon. Really an eye-catcher! I started to get my wife one for Christmas, but got her a RIA Compact 9mm Tac II instead to save a little money for my own devices.

I agree with Gary....you need that Sapphire. It's been on my wish list for a while. Maybe for my birthday in March

Marshall Jeffrey is but if I'm going to spend that much coin on her it will be in the form of a ring...
But but but...
When we say our vows some day wouldn't it be great to exchange Kimbers instead of the traditional rings???

"With this Kimber, I thee wed".....

What's her email address? She might want to see this post.

Good idea. My wife never wears her wedding ring, and I never had one to begin with. A gun would have been fun though.
