New to forum from Athens, GA, area

Hi,

New here. Just got my Kimber Solo on Friday, Aug. 28th.

Traded my Sig P238 to get it. My big hands just did not shoot well with the P238.

My wife also has a P238 and shoots incredibly well with hers.

I also use a Glock G42, Kel-Tec PF9, S&W Model 19, S&W Model 10.

Have not shot the Solo yet, maybe tomorrow. Need to do the dis, clean, lube first.

Have 50 rounds of Federal American Eagle 124gr. to break it in with.

Looking for good CCW holster. The Blackhawk I use with my Glock works but the Solo sits a little loose in it.

Anyway, I'm looking to be an active member here.

Welcome to the forum from Colorado. Congrats on your new Solo. I have a Sig P238 that I love, but I have small hands, so it works well for me.

Welcome to the forum.

There's several of us who have P238s in the family.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois Iwilliams and congratulations on the new Solo. I also have a Sig P238 and love it for pocket carry in the shorts and T-shirt weather. Check out one of our members wolf1956 facebook page, he's made holsters for a few of our members here.
