Hello from the Zoo, Kalamazoo

Purchased my first Kimber awhile back. a saffire blue 1911. my safe queen. for my grand kids some day.

yesterday purchased a Kimber Solo which I plan to shoot a lot.

I am retired now, with a small part time job. enjoying life.

Upright and walking. couldn't always say that.

OPR1945, welcome to the site from Tennessee. Congrats on both Kimber's.

I suggest shooting the Sapphire 1911 and making the Solo your "safe queen." just my .02.

Welcome Opr from southern Ca. ! It sounds like you and I have a couple things in common already. I have had to work on staying upright these last couple years myself. We can talk about that later. I also have a Solo and and a few 1911's.
How about posting some pictures of your Solo and Sapphire 1911. We really like pictures They look good on the Clubhouse walls!
