New Kimber owner and member

Been reading the forums here for a bit so now that I have my Kimber Stainless Pro Carry II figured I would register and say Howdy.

Had a Springfield 1911 27 years ago that I got rid of and always regretted (well who doesn't regret at least 1 they let go right? )

Saw this one at the LGS (used price) next to a dual tone new last week. Stainless is quite the looker. Well I was happy it was still there this week so had to have it The Store owner is an awesome guy and we broke it down and as he is really inspecting it starts going hmmmm.. that's interesting.. and then the .. Well Scot I got some bad news for you... dramatic pause .... This gun was only factory test fired > No powder smell on the magazine , no marks from it ever been loaded.
Sweet... so of course the instant check put a hold (only 24 hours but a lot better than if I went through the dang bureaucrats.
Well I had to call Kimber with the serial number while I was waiting and sure enough.. Production date of 3/31/2016. So seems I wound up with a like new (new) Stainless Pro Carry II for under $600 before the taxes.
Only thing I can figure is whoever let this go won it in a raffle or got in money trouble quick... Some times things go your way ya know.
