New member from California

New to this forum, new to Kimber, new to 1911.

Please don't judge me harshly just because I am from the left coast. I earned my stripes putting "Reagan for Governor" bumper stickers on neighborhood cars when I was 9 years old. (A mean Pat Brown supporter chased me off after I adorned his car with one).

Made a Patriot level donation to the NRA and have a Custom II on its way.

I have many guns, but never a 1911 so I am excited to finally join the fraternity. Just a quick question, the gun is a black Custom II, which I don't see on the website. Is this a discontinued model?

Welcome to the forum from southern Cal. Cannot answer your question but I am sure you will like the custom 1911. Just be sure to clean the gun and lube before going to the range for the first time. Someone else probably will answer your question.

Welcome aboard coach, from another California "radical." In this state, I think they consider us gun owners as radicals at best, or terrorists in their eyes at worst.

You'll love the 1911. I got my first, a Pro CDP II about 2 years ago, and it's my carry of choice now. Clean and lube well and run as many rounds as you can through it and it'll run smoothly for ya.

I also can't answer about your Custom II, but there's a lot of experience and help here with info and suggestions, so someone will.

Welcome to the forum from Northern Illinois. As you can see, there are more than a few rightee's on the left coast. Settle in and stay awhile. Let us know how those early range sessions go, and, pic's are always welcome.
