The new guy from TX

Hi all.

My and I just picked up 2 new Kimbers on Monday.
A Custom Crimson Carry II and a Sapphire Ultra II. Absolutely great guns so we're happy with them no doubt.

Decided to go ahead and take the CHL class and will probably have my wife sign up for more in depth courses at the local ranges just for more education and training.

I've had a lot of experience with handguns just from growing up with them and experience in the military but I never think I know everything and I just like learning new little nuggets of info so I'm always reading, researching or talking to folks.

Great site and maybe I can pick your brains a bit later on.

And we will be welcoming your opinion, as well. We (some) may talk like we know what we're doing, but we all have room for improvement and new info.

Welcome.
