Greeting from Rhode Island

Hello, everyone.

I've lurked here for a while, but decided to join because I finally took the plunge into Kimber World...picked up a nearly-new Kimber Solo DC on gunbroker the other day. I'm hoping to have my new pistol in hand by early next week, and will take it to the range shortly thereafter with the hope that I've grabbed one of the good ones.

After 34 years in federal law enforcement (USCG, Dept. of State, Dept. of the Army, Dept. of Justice, and Dept. of Homeland Security), I retired in March of this year. So far, retirement sure beats working!

I was a firearms instructor for 4 federal agencies, and besides shooting I like spending my time studying/teaching martial arts, lifting, and hanging out with my kids.

Some of you may have run across me on various other gun forums (Seecamp, Beretta, Glock, Remington, Kel Tec, Kahr, etc). I've found that these forums are invaluable, especially when diagnosing or fixing any issues that pop up.

Anyway, happy to be here.

Yeah, I've read the various reviews here. I've got some 124 grain +p ammo ready and waiting to get it broken in...fingers crossed.
