New guy from NC

Have an original Custom( pre II), but am looking for a carry gun, so thought I'd stop in here to get educated on the smaller Kimbers.

Welcome from middle Tenn. I carry a Micro 9 and have been very pleased with it. No problems so far. Small and easy to conceal.

Bigdog, welcome to the site from Tennessee. I am a fan of and highly recommend any of the Ultra models of your liking in .45acp.

Welcome to the forum from Northeast, Pa Bigdog. I agree with 2sharp2 the Ultra is a great choice. Mine is a 9mm but eventually I want one in 45.

Welcome from Durham. How do you feel about a Pro model in 9mm?

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois Bigdog. My favorite EDC is an Ultra Tactical .45 but any Ultra or Pro that Kimber makes will work.

Welcome to the forum from GA. I originally bought my 9mm Ultra Carry 2 for an EDC, and I love it, it's my favorite pistol, but I am a 5ft tall woman and since I have the Kimber bug, I went on to buy the Micro 380 and the Micro 9. My 380 is working through some issues but I carry the M9 or my Sig P238 on a daily basis. If you can rent them at a local range, shoot them all! Judging by your name, you may not want anything smaller than the Ultra!
