Hello all,
I just purchased my first Kimber. It's a Pro Carry .45 and am looking forward to my range time this Friday. It's already scrubbed, lubed and ready. Anything I should keep in mind so the outing is a memorable one?

Welcome from Northeast, Pa. Congratulations on your new Pro Carry. I would recommend that you run your gun a little on the wet side and use 230gr ball ammo for the first 500 rounds like Kimber recommends. Also post some pictures and a range report.

Welcome to the forum & congrats on your first Kimber! You're already on the right track with your cleaning/lube. Follow the break in instructions in your manual & you will be in good shape.
If everything seems under control, you're just not going fast enough.
