I love Kimber firearms, you?

After fiddling with several different brands of 1911s, I'm personally convinced I want to own as many different Kimbers as financially possible.

I think I've found a brand I can get behind all the different models.

They all offer something just a little bit different.

Thank you, Kimber and thank you to Chuck for running such a great house.

I agree, they have a broad and diverse lineup and who doesn't like a pretty gun

Agree. I like Kimber to the extent I have eight so far, looking at another. I am looking at a Ultra Carry II 9mm for my next purchase.

I must admit I like Kimbers myself. I love 1911's! I want to add a Colt to my collection because they were the first. Someday maybe a High end model like a Nighthawk custom or Wilson Combat. In the meantime I love my Kimbers and
my Springfiels armory models I have.

I only have five Kimber pistols and one of their rifles (84M in 204 Ruger)....BUT, I'm really wanting a Kimber Pro CDP in 9mm now. Just can't make up my mind if I want the Ultra or Commander length, as I have an Ultra in .45 with a Milt Sparks VM2 for it also.

Decisions, decisions......what to do, what to do?

But you're right Bish......more is definitely better!

Yeah, I think I can almost claim that, too. I know I took 1 of 2 used ones they had. The other one they have is a Micro 9 Raptor. If I didn't already have a Micro 9 I might consider it.

They can get Kimbers but they won't be competitive.

But I have its big brother coming today so I think I'm good on Raptors for this month.
