Super Carry Pro HD

I was out for a Saturday cruise of local LGS's, stopped at my usual haunt and low and behold, in the case along with Springers, Sigs and all the usual Kimber candidates, I spy a Kimber Super Carry Pro HD, a bit over priced, but in pristine condition.

Only bummer (for me) is, that it was in .45, and I've got half a safe full of 45's. So dangit!!!, it did not come home with me.

Maybe next time.....

I don’t have one but it’s one I wish I had. I remember seeing them for around $1000 and then they were discontinued. Now if I see them, they are asking $1300-$1550 new old stock.

Yep, you're spot-on. This one was tagged $1,199.00. A tad steep, but if was a nine, it still would have come home with me.

Who knew they'd get scarce/desirable so quickly?

The Super Carry series was only offered in .45.

An alternative to the Super Carry Pro HD would be the Classic Carry Pro, it's the same gun with a Turnbull Restoration Charcoal Blue finish. Originally it came with Giraffe Bone grips that was changed on later models to G-10 ivory grips. I was lucky enough to get one before they changed the grips on them.

Me to! I found one as the bone grip models were getting harder to find but it cost me, it feels so good and sure is purdy.

imoÖ.CCP's Turnbull Charcoal Blue finish with checkering vs SSP HD KimPro finish with scales is a 'no brainer' as it relates to 'ease of operation' and grip less residual value. Grip selection and personal $$$ taste always guides my emotional Round Butt decision.

Sexy Guns with Bone go hand in hand.

Nice to hear my first Kimber might someday be worth more than I paid for it. No, I don't believe that's true for a second, but since I don't plan to sell it either, good enough I guess...

So let me pose a question to the KT crew: Assuming this Pro HD is in very good condition, what does the crew consider a "good" price? This thing is calling to me.

I don't 'need' any more .45's, but this is one that intrigues me to no end. The fact that it is a discontinued model adds to the desire.

Listed in the case at $1,199, anything lower would be good of course, but what would you all consider the "buy now" price? Be reasonable, okay?

Anyone? Anyone?.......
