Another newbie from NC

I usually don't "introduce" myself on a new forum, but here I am doing just that!
Not new to guns or Kimber. Had a few Kimbers a few years ago, sold them to try other weapons. Ended up buyng a few late last year, but 2 friends wanted 2 of them so I gave in and let them have them.

That left me with an Ultra Covert .45 and a Pro Raptor .45,,,,,,,,,,,,, until todays little purchase at the LGS with a sale on the Micro9 Desert Tan, yes, the 1 with CT grips,,,,$649.00 plus state tax !
You can't beat that. I own 3 Sig P938's, my favorite small ccw gun, but I couldn't pass up a Micro9 with CT grips for the price I paid.

So, I now own a measly 3 Kimbers, more to follow I'm sure.

Peace out.

Welcome from southern CA. You may only have three Kimbers but they are all nice! I would like to have the Pro Raptor myself. I have given thought to the covert also. Enjoy just clean lube and shoot!

I don't know? Maybe not? I am a thrifty shopper! Some were new some previously loved.
If you only knew my friend, so we are NOT counting the rifles and revolvers, non Kimber 1911's?

When I walk into the post office the lady just asks "what's the amount for your Money Order?"
