Whats your Favorite Kimber

Some of us own just one, some of us more. I am not asking for a list of your Kimbers. I do think it would be interesting to see what your favorite one is, and what you use it for. If its everyday carry, range gun, target, tactical, tin cans, the most accurate, dosnt matter. I think some of us could find it helpful when deciding what our next Kimber will be, and to see what our fellow members like the best. Please feel free to add any commits as to why its your favorite to help us understand.

That's like asking, "Which of your children do you love the best?"

I suppose I will have to say my Super Carry Ultra HD is my favorite.
Primarily because it is my EDC, so I get to handle it the most. Kind of reinforces the relationship. But I will go to the safe room and fondle/dry-fire them all. Each and everyone puts a smile on my face. FWIW: The full size Custom is the best shooter at the range. The Stainless Pro Raptor is the best looking, best balanced, best feeling in my hand, and may eventually become the best shooter after it has a 1,000 rounds through it.

I will start. My favorite Kimber is my Pro Carry II , because it was my first one and I purchased it with my son. Hes the one that talked me into it. My everyday carry is a Black Ultra Raptor, My range gun is my Desert Warrior, that thing is a beast and I seem to shoot it the best.

I do understand that, I love all of mine and will not trade or give any of these away. I just like to see what others like and why. I have never seen a super ultra Hd but if I do I will be sure check it out now. lol

My favorite is one I don't own,that is the 5" Stainless Raptor II. Maybe someday, Maybe someday. Maybe if I close my eyes and click my heels together and say "Stainless Raptor II, Stainless Raptor II" If it worked for Dorthy it might work for me.

My favorite is my first one which is a PCII 9mm.
I wore the Kimpro finish off and even super glued the bushings on at one time and that wasn't such a good thing to do.
I had it Cerakoted and replaced every spring and then added a Ed Brown snakeskin msh magwell along with a set of buffalo bone grips from Stag..
It's approaching 5K rounds and it's never had one issue right out of the case..
That's my Ugly Duckling story..

Of my 5 1/2* Kimbers my Super Carry Pro is my favorite. It fits my hand like a tailored glove and while I doubt it's any more accurate then any of the others I seem to shoot it more accurately. It's preformed flawlessly from day one and now has almost 2000 rounds through it. It was my daily carry gun until recently when I started pocket carrying my Sig P938 around the house and property but I still keep it in condition 1 stashed where I can easily get to it and I never leave home without it.

*the 1/2 is my Kimber .22 conversion kit.

Cant wait to shoot mine, hope I like it as much as you like yours . I got couple others to sort out first. With that one fitting your hand that nice, its easy to see why you love it.
