Kimber newbie!

Hello all! Not new to shooting but new to Kimber and 1911s in general. I typically shoot Sigs, love the X Series pistols. But a couple of days ago I caught a nice sale and picked up my first 2 Kimbers; a Raptor II in 38 Super and a Pro Carry II in .45. I'll definately do a lot of lurking and learning.

Welcome to the forum from GA. Congratulations on your Kimber acquisitions. Looking forward to hearing what you think of them. Clean & lube before hitting the range, good luck with them!
