New member - long time Kimber shooter

Howdy folks!
Thanks for the opportunity to mingle with great people. I have a Compact STS II that is my second favorite 45 Auto. My first is my Dadís M1911A1 he carried while a tail gunner in a Mitchell B-25 during the liberation of the Philippines Ė WWII.
Yep, (while sticking my thumbs in my suspenders) and I am a former Marine too.

Welcome, je2wheeler. Welcome to you, your compact and your dad's 1911. Obviously you are very proud of that family heirloom, and rightfully so.

Welcome to the forum from Colorful Colorado! We really love pictures on this forum - I would especially love to see pics of your Dad's pistol!

My Dad was also a Marine ...
