Hola!

Current LEO and Glock fanboy, first time 1911/Kimber owner

Traded in my FNS 9c and decided to finally pull the trigger and satisfy my need for a 1911, a Kimber Custom II specifically.






Already have a leather holster, night sights, black grips, and some Chip McCormick stainless mags on the way.


Looking forward to using the site and learning more about my new obsession!

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois Ryan and congratulations on the new Kimber Custom II. We won't hold the fact that you're an admitted Glock fanboy against you, we'll all pray for your recovery.

Welcome to KT from St Lou....

We're so glad that you have come out of the darkness and found yourself your first of many Kimbers...

Glock fanboy ? Don't worry, you will have plenty of company on KT....

Ryan, Welcome from ENC! There are others on this site who share their gun safes with non Kimbers so you should not feel alone. That being said, there are a bunch of other Kimbers to lust after so be prepared! NGD cannot come too often!

Thank you everyone!

I'm sure my Glock fanboy-ism can be cured in time. The Kimber will need at least 20,000 rounds through it to surpass my beloved G17 and current G21 duty weapon, but that's a challenge I feel I can accomplish

Welcome to KT.

Based on your avatar, you look a little young to be LEO and a gun owner. But, hey, you're in the land of cheese, things may be different there.
