New guy from Kansas

Hi all, just found this forum and glad to be a part of it! I only own one Kimber, a 15 year old Custom that has seen thousands of rounds through it. Only had 2 malfunction in the first 50 rounds, and then one years later when I was qualifying for my CCW! Go figure! To qualify the range said factory ammo only so I was shooting 200 gr Mag Tec SWC and had one jam on the feed ramp, I was embarassed. Did a clearance drill and finished the course and the RO just grinned!

What part of NE Kansas do you call home? I used to live in Grandview, MO, close by the state line. Have brother-in-law that lives in Olathe.

Send us a photo or two of that legendary Kimber of yours!! We like pictures here!!!! They seem to have a calming effect on us!!!!

Congrats on making it through the CCW qualification. RO should have given you extra points for efficiently dealing with the failure. Quick thinking and even quicker hands!!!
