Hi from WVA...new to forum, old Kimber owner

Greetings from the Mountain State! Just joined the Kimber forum and I'm looking forward to getting new info and sharing what I can from 50 yrs of handgun shooting and competition, 37 yrs of reloading and over 30 yrs as a Kimber owner. Check out my first year Kimber Custom (1994) as I remember. I bought it the month it came out on the cover of American Handgunner magazine. Valkyrie muzzle break and grips, Wilson magwell , fiber optic front sight and Alien holster. Added some new springs a couple of years ago. It has a naturally broken-in 3# trigger and will generally out shoot most anything else on the range. I never go to the range without it.
