First range session Kimber Tactical Pro II

Just got back from fist range session with my new to me Tactical Pro II. I have never been able to brag about my handgun prowess but this piece of art makes me look pretty darn good. 200 mixed ball rounds fired including 25 rounds of Remington Golden Saber that I had collecting dust in the safe. One fail to feed by the ball, no misfires or stovepipes and several hot cases in the forehead (ouch). No issues with the Golden Saber. It is snappy and really can feel the difference from the standard ball. At 21 ft only 5 flyers out side the center of basic B-27 silhouette target. Using the range trigger pull gauge got a clean and crisp 4 lbs. I had forgotten how natural in the hand and easy to shoot the 1911 platform was. A real pleasure to shoot. I have a couple of 8 round Kimber Tac mags on order and will head back to the range when they come in.

That read exactly as I expected it to. Congrats on the Tactical Pro.

It sounds like you had a great time today, as the gun gets broken in it's going to get even better.

My 1911's seem to make me a better shooter also. Just point and Pull the trigger. I read somewhere we do not pull the trigger but instead we are pressing the trigger. Personally I feel like I am actually pulling not pressing. Anyway I digress back on point I love 1911's. In fact I think Santa is going to bring me one for Christmas!

There is absolutely nothing to hate abut the Tactical Pro other than it sure eats a lot of the budget to keep it fed. Love mine too!

Cool Oh Yeah!!!

That is a typical comment for a range report on a Kimber. IT CAN SHOOT BETTER THAN I CAN!!! So anyone who bashes Kimbers, obviously has never shot one!!!

Congrats on that new Tactical. It sounds like a shooter to me!!!
