Pitiful! I don't need any flavor of Solo look a like EVO, I don't need a "Combat" 3" K6S, I certainly don't need a 1911 that looks like a "Lost in Space or Star Trek" Ray gun.

Nope! Nothing for me, Thank you.

Ok, if they would offer a TFS (threaded for suppression) barrel in the Rapide 9mm I would consider it.

...I've got to ask? I don't have an actual count but it seems like you have one hell of a gun collection!!! At this point I've got to ask myself "what is it that the Sharp one NEEDS anyways"??? Maybe more space for storage :-)

I like a 357 mag but isn’t it about time to add something like a 44 mag or 41 Special. Maybe a long barrel revolver too.

When the revolver tease started a few years ago I was hoping to see a nice SA wheel gun in .44 to compete with Ruger's Super Blackhawk. A legitimate backcountry or hunting pistol. Stainless, trick comfy grip and maybe interchangeable barrels??? A 5" for the backpack and a 10"or so for hunting...

I saw the other day they are completely out of the 38 Super business. If they would put Super in something mainstream like the Pro Carry they could sell them by the truck load.

Looks like Kimber's milling machines are working overtime.

I agree guys, love it but have plenty 357 revolvers, well have plenty in 44mag and special also but LOVE the big bore 44's. So if they made a K6 size with 2 or 3 inch barrel in 44mag I'd be a player. No I don't need any more long barrel revolvers cause I don't hunt anymore.

LOL! I ask myself "THAT" question all the time, "do I need that?" NO, is the answer for the most part. Except room in the safe is becoming an issue, I'm squeezing pistols in but I only have room for about two more rifles without major crowding.
I believe the 1911 Kimber count is at 16 that contains a lot of discontinued models. Didn't plan that, some were bought before Kimber gave them the axe. I have no Kimber's in mind to buy, unless they add a threaded barrel to the 9mm Aegis Elite Pro sometime soon. Closest gun that's in my mind instead of the Aegis will be about the only brand I can find that's still affordable is a Dan Wesson Vigil Suppressed in 9mm.
Lost in a boating accident.
For the wondering: Colt's 3- 1911's, 1-Python, 1 Woodsman. 2. Dan Wesson Valor VBob's 1 each .45 & 9mm Stainless. 1 Detonics Combat Master. Wilson Combat CQB Compact Stainless .45 & 9mm, 1. Blue CQB Compact 45.

...thinking about it Micros don't really eat up much real estate. If 9mm .44 and .45 were to become scarce might not be a bad idea to have a few .380s in there? I mean you want to be prepared right???
