Hello from Northern Wisconsin

Hi, Just bought a new ultra crimson carry II. But we have to much snow up here and they will plow our range. So I'm on hold with trying it out. But cant wait.
Thought I would hang out here and learn some new things.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois guitarman62, while you're waiting for your range to open read your owners manual and give your ultra crimson carry II a good cleaning and lube.

Welcome from Ky. If you want first-hand experiences about Kimbers, you're in the right place.

Yesterday, on the way to the range I stopped at a LGS to pick up a few boxes of ammo and noticing the clerk wore a holstered pistol, I asked him "so, you like 1911s?." He nodded and said something to the effect that 1911s were the only pistols he cared to own. Not trying to impress, but just curious, I said "is that a Kimber Crimson Pro Carry HD." Since all I could see was the grip, hammer and mainspring housing it was a pretty good guess. Impressive apparently because he was impressed. Then I told him about my Kimber—a stainless Pro Carry II that looked exactly like his, minus the laser. He then told me about several other Kimbers he owned and I thought "yep, bit by the same bug." Though a small store, it is becoming my favorite. I picked up a new bottle of Hoppe's and some patches and headed to the range to satisfy my own bug.

I{we} get more compliments from people at the range when they walk by our stall and look down at the 3 Kimbers laying there.The ladies are more impressed with GiGi's Ultra TLE 3in and most had thought it was too much gun for a chick to shoot/carry until they watch her shoot it with accuracy the way she does...
