Any SIS Kimber Owners Here?

I know this is a long shot, looking for any owners of any of the four models of the three year production of SIS Kimbers. There was a Ultra, Pro, Custom, Custom with Rail.
Did you used to own one? Do you still own one? Likes/dislikes.
Best I can tell these were introduced at the 2008 Shot Show and production was halted on Jan. 1st 2010.
Not everyone's cup of tea. You can Google to see pics and find out more. If you Google, one story I found interesting was published by Guns and Ammo magazine. May not be anyone with the Kimber addiction going back that far.

Stop talking that way... I had announced about a month ago, no one could purchase a SIS until I get one.

Hoff, my friend you had better hurry! You know I was outbid last week on a sweet SIS Custom.

Ok, we want one, the question is does anyone have one?

The best looking SIS and possibly the best looking pistol I have ever seen was posted under the picture topic back in Nov. last year by norrisja. He has a Ultra SIS and had the "works" done to it.

We have a SIS Pro and are quite pleased with it, and NO, it is not for sale. They are fairly tricked out pistols, likely not much I could think to do to it.

If you get a chance how about a pic and range report? Do you shoot it much?

Actually this is part of my wife's stable of guns, so no I am not allowed near it, or any of her guns since I tried to commandeer her Springfield V-10. I have shot it, some time ago, and was impressed. I know she has had no problems and periodically does carry it. She does pamper it a bit, so I'm guessing no more than a few thousand rounds through it.
