I Am Still Buying Kimbers

Hi Everyone,
It's me, the eternal "new guy" who bought his first Kimber and sold his Glock about 6 months a go. I have the Ultra+II and I am paying for NOT ONE but TWO full size Kimbers. Both are stainless. One is the MatchII and the other the Custom Combat. I simply won the auction for the MatchII, then decided that what I really wanted was the Custom Combat. Weird for a guy who lives in a state where Gun Haters outnumber Gun Lovers.
Cheers,
Bill

Actually, the intent is to live vicariously through your photographs so we can both admire your newest additions and image what it would be like to to take said newest additions to the range and pummel a target unmercifully. :-)

OK Guys,
Finally-Here are two images of the only Kimber that I have fully payed for. As far as a Range Report, That would not be fair to the gun. Remember, I was 65 when A fired a pistol for the first time. When I lived in New York City, It was still mostly switch blades and bicycle chains. I think that you will agree with me. My Kimber Ultra + looks much like every other Kimber Ultra+.
There are a couple of little stains on the SS barrel. That was from applying a blackening fluid to scratches in the aluminum. It worked great for hiding scratches on the aluminum. But I got some on the SS and it will not come out.
Bill
