Hello from Virginia

I have been a devout J frame pocket carrying citizen for many years. I saw the Kimber K6s and was in awe. After reading the positive feedback I decided to grab one. I've been very pleased. The actual combat sights, the trigger and the 6 round capacity are worth the premium.

I do want larger grips as I find the grip to be a touch small for me.

I also want Tritium sights.

I don't start carrying a revolver until I have at least 500 rounds through it. I shoot Steel out to 25 yards on a regular basis but I would fee more confident if I can ring the gong at 50 yards. Longer distances unmask any errors I have with shooting.

This will replace my S&W 640 in my carry arsenal.
