Using any old ammo voids the Kimber warranty

I swear to God, a cop told me this yesterday. He said the reason Kimber isn't popular, and the reason LAPD SWAT stopped using Kimbers was because using any ammo other than Kimber ammunition voids the warranty.

My question is, how would Yonkers know? Are law enforcement agencies required to sign some type of binding full disclosure agreement?

I phrase my question that way because some Ford dealerships here locally would not warranty Crown Victoria models when used as commercial taxi cabs.

I've never heard of Kimber ammo either.In the event my gun malfunctions and requires a trip back to Yonkers I will swear up and down that I only used Kimber approved ammo,whatever that is.

He was saying Kimber brand ammo. I told him that there is no such thing. Of course, he didn't believe a word I said.

Talking Here Ya Go!!!

I Googled KIMBER AMMUNITION. There was nothing about Kimber brand ammunition that came up. What did come up, from the Kimber website was:

"We recommend using quality American-made ammunition. Choose from trusted names like Federal, Winchester or Remington......" And that's the truth!!!
