Hi from Arkansas..

New to the site. Name's Bob. As you might summarize from the username, I'm in Law Enforcement- 15 years before moving from the police side of the badge to Parole Officer.
Always carried Glocks as they were the issued weapons, but lusted after an Ultra Carry. Took me the better part of 15 years to get one, but then I wandered into the local gunshop to buy the wife a Ruger .380 for Christmas. They had a slightly used Ultra Carry II Tactical on display, and before I left the store, I'd spent about five times what I'd planned to spend- but I had my Kimber.
Took it out for the first qualification and shot a 492/500, having pulled a shot from the 15 yard line rushing it. Not bad for the first 75 rounds I've shot through it.
I'm sure I'll be here a lot, especially since I've just ordered my 11 year old daughter a Bel Aire .380- can't start them too young, and I figure it'll be a good investment. The down side is, I think this may have gotten expensive, since the wife doesn't seem too enamored of me and the daughter having Kimbers while she has a Ruger.....

Welcome from middle Tenn. Bob, hard to stay satisfied with a Ruger when everyone else in the family has a Kimber. Good luck

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois Bob. I think the Tactical line is one of the most featured loaded guns Kimber made, my EDC is an Ultra Tactical.
