New member from central Ohio here

Hey, all! I'm always happy to find a new place to nerd-out on all things gun related.
I've owned many firearms but just recently purchased my first Kimber. A K6s, and I hate to say that my first experience has been a bad one. I posted my issue over on the Revolver forum.
That said, I'm looking forward to meeting some folks. 👍🏻

Welcome to the forum from Northern Illinois. I'm sure that if someone on this forum cannot help you, the Kimber Customer Service crew will.

Wink Hey Ya'll!!!

Welcome to KT from beautiful downtown Monroe, Georgia!!!

Congrats on your new K6s. Sorry to hear about your shooting issue with it. Please go over to the Revolver Thread and see my response to your issue over there. Hopefully that should clear up your problem.

Glad to have you with us. Hope to hear more from you in the future.
We don't have that many revolver folks on here as of yet. It is a growing segment of the Kimber clan though!!

I was a revolver man for many years when I started shooting. I cut my teeth on Smith and Wesson revolvers. I shifted over to semi-autos around the mid-80's. But just recently, I purchased a Smith and Wesson Model 637 Airweight. I like it a lot. Maybe I have come back full circle now?? Who knows.

Welcome from WVa

Welcome from just down the road. I have both ends of early ('94) Classic Custom 1911 and new K6 with just a few rounds through it. I think you'll really enjoy your K6... it's a very interesting gun.
