New guy from Arizon-Minnesota

Hi to all of you. I just joined and am glad I found this site. I am an old fart the lives in Arizona (my regular Home), and the summers in Minnesota. Since retiring 14 years ago I see no reason to put up with the summers in AZ. I have a Kimber SS gold Match II.45 and just this past week bought two Kimber Micro 9 Desert model guns. One for me and one for the wife. Just put about 30 rounds through it at the range and loved it. It far exceeds my expectations. My wife has wimpy hands and has no problem shooting it.

Cool Hey Ya'll!!!

Welcome to the forum from beautiful downtown Monroe,

Your Kimber SS Gold Match II is a serious competition pistol. And congrats on the two new Micro 9's. Please post pictures of your Kimbers.
We like pictures! We'd also like range reports on your Kimbers. I'd sure like to see what that Gold Match can do!! Lookin' forward to it!!

Glad to have you with us. I know what you mean about the summers in Arizona!! One of my nieces got married in an outdoor wedding in Phoenix in the summer. It was 110 degrees even when the sun went down!! I lived in Wisconsin for 6 years so I know the summers are a whole lot cooler in Minnesota.

Don't feel that you are in the minority here. Most of us here are old retired coots. We have the time to play and the money to pay for the best that Kimber can put out!! I just peed away a bunch on a new Stainless Ultra Raptor II. Now I'm gonna shoot the hell out of it!!

Jump right in, we value new ideas and new experiences. Feel free to jump in at any time. Lots experience, knowledge and good clean fun here!!

Welcome Mr Lee and Mrs.Lee I think it is great your wife enjoys shooting also. Congratulations on your Kimbers. I do not own a micro hard to come by in CA. Someday it will happen. I do have five other Kimbers we can talk about.
