Hello everyone..from Minnesota

A few weeks ago I purchase a new Solo with CT grips. This is my 1st ever Kimber pistol. I have been reading this forum ever since I became interested in the Solo. I have learned everything I know about this gun from this great forum. I am retired and love to shoot. I have ccw permits in three different states, and after I get several hundred rounds through the Solo, I plan on using it as my carry choice. Also have an emp .40, but it seems a bit heavy to lug around all day.
I have had one range session of about 40 shots. Gun was flawless for the first 4 or 5 mags, and then I started to get FTE's, with 4 different approved loads. I failed to clean and oil the gun prior to going to the range, so hopefully, this was the problem. I have since taken the gun apart about a dozen different times to make sure I knew how to properly assemble it. Piece of cake. I will post the results of my next range session once it is all cleaned and oiled.
My first post was a picture on my new holster from Wright Leather Works. I paid the $50 for rush service and had it in my hands two weeks later. They are really great people and have a holster that is made for the Solo with CT grips.

My husband has the EMP in 9mm & really likes it.
