Greetings from the High Desert

High desert of Central Oregon that is.

Retired RVN vet, former LE, long time Kimber/1911 fan. Been handloading since 1968, carried my Ultra CDP for years, now trade off with my new Micro 9 and sometimes my Sig P938. Been a CC for decades and have a RL-550 for the bench chores.

Have a Clack Custom Classic in the safe, along with my Ultra CDP, TLE-RLII, and a Pro CDP II. All with night sights, and a Kimber .22LR Conversion Kit. A Kimber 84M in 204R also is also in the mix.

My primary gun-love is shooting both rock chucks and ground squirrels from my BR Pivot Lite bench (my old patent) with my Cooper 20VT or like rifles, but a 1911 of one flavor or another is always in my IWB no matter where I am.

Looking forward to sharing the Kimber love here with other aficionados.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois Rick, I'd love to see a picture of the Clackamas Custom Classic sometime.
