What's up with Kimber's website?

I've been having trouble for several days. I keep trying to narrow down my next 1911, and the darn site won't load. I can understand a day, maybe two, but this has been going on for a while. My guess is their hosting service sucks. I can't imagine another reasonable explanation other than someone just not doing their job. Hopefully, whoever they have running the site, whether it's an internal or external webmaster, will dump that hosting service and bring it up somewhere else. No mention of problems on their Facebook page, or Twitter.

Loads ok for me. Try clearing your cookies from your browser.

I think they may have chosen poorly when they decided to put the video in the home page with auto play. Videos take longer to load.

I haven't had the problem recently, but I did get some glitches a few weeks ago.

I wanted to look at Raptors--plural. No matter what I did, only the larger one would show up. A bit later (perhaps an hour) then the entire page opened.

I just considered it a minor annoyance, but something wasn't loading, and I did not experience the same thing with other sights. My computer was working okay.

Yesterday during the day I was on the site several times and it loaded up quickly. Yesterday during the evening it took forever to load, I wonder if either they're doing maintenance on it in the evening or if they're just experiencing a lot of traffic.

No problems with me. Every time I sign on it loads right up.

Just talked to Kimber when ordering a part and Jeremy said that they have been doing maintenance on their website. .

Yeah, I figured if I complained about it, it would start working. I can get on it fine now. There was also no-one awake for me to complain to either. So, I made a post.

Trouble here, too, from multiple devices (PC, phone, ipad)...for the past two days at least (I didn't try to connect this past weekend).

It's off again here in the Lou..
The guy at Kimber told me today that the phone lines have been non-stop since Monday morning with questions of why the site was not always working over the last 5 days..
Maintenance is the #1 answer..
