Another new guy

Hello all! New to the Kimber forum. Lifelong gun owner, retired Marine and current CCW instructor. I have always wanted a Kimber and finally pulled the trigger on a beautiful Stainless II. Unfortunately they are on backorder so I have to wait a week or two for it to come in. I don't mind, got a great deal from a local shop and I always prefer to shop local. Anyway, my current small pistol collection includes:

H&K USP
Remington 1911 (1960's vintage)
Springfield XD .40
S&W 686 .357
Walther P22
Ruger LCP (my EDC)
Taurus Public Defender

I know the Stainless is kind of a base model so I might consider upgrades over time. Just wanted to say hello and look forward to learning more about Kimber.

I'm also trying to get over my fear of carrying with the hammer back because I really want a Micro eventually.

Welcome from NC. How about a range report when it comes in?

Again, welcome to the forum. You said you got a new Stainless II but never mentioned which one, is it an Ultra, Pro or Custom?
