Greetings from new england

Howdy all, my name is Ron Orban and I look forward to posting and commenting here and there.
Probably will be commenting shortly on the Micro 9 Crimson Carry I just got my wife,(lol), for her birthday. Well maybe it will cover Christmas and her next birthday too considering I got impatient and purchased it at Cabela's.
In any event we are all here for praisin and/or pissin about Kimber firearms mainly. Bought my first somewhere around 1998 or 2000 I think and haven't ever regretted it. Unfortunately I DO regret I no longer have that 1911. My older brother was heavily involved on the Board of a Sportsmans club and various competitions in New Hampshire. I would let him use it in return for using his Pointman Guardian Ace which had been tuned through the Dan Wesson custom shop and I really liked it. He ended up getting the Kimber and a couple cowboy action revolvers stolen from the truck one night and that was that.
The Kimber was an all steel old beauty with that unequaled perfect carbon blue job they used to do. I miss it terribly. While I own some stainless weapons facts are facts. It's soft and inferior for most every purpose we use it for. BUT that's don't rust (depending) and it's shiny I guess....
Best Regards
See you all soon

Welcome from Southern California Ron! I agree with your assessment of the new firearms being produced these days! I miss the blue-ing of S&W and Colt and the hand fitting and the machine tool steel. Having said that I am still an addicted Gun enthusiast! Love 1911's and really like our forum and it's members!
