Happy Kimber owner in Western NC

Hi there, just joined and saying hello. I bought my Custom II stainless back in 2003 when I turned 30. I've been spending more time at the range lately, and shooting very well with this 1911.

I've been shooting since I was a boy, family had a gun store. Uncles were ex-marines, gave me an appreciation for the 1911, Garands, AR, M14 and M1 Carbine etc and have carried a 1903-A3 more than anyone my age I think. Not some kind of accomplishment, just narrative.

Natural for me to choose the 1911 since I worked on them and shot them as a 13 yo, and after owning berettas, Sig 220, etc (never a glock) in my twenties, I discovered a manufacturer that I had never heard of as a boy. Good move. Great shooting gun, glad I bought it. The others were fine too, but not the same.

Also bought a Sig P238 a month or two ago, great little 1911 type gun.

All the best,

Cap
