Howdy from North Texas

New to Kimber. Just purchased an SS Pro Carry II. Hope to have in hand by Saturday. Purchased on the internet. Was a back and forth between the Kimber and a Colt Commander LW. Think I made the right choice for me. Excited to be an "almost" Kimber owner.

Welcome neighbor from the Great State of Oklahoma (not far from Plano).
Congrats on the purchase of a great gun. Any questions, you will get your answers here.
Just don't listen to that Gundude. The guy's a pint short of a pint.

Like the idea of a Colt but the Kimber seemed like a better value for my first 1911. That was the internal discussion, wanted a Colt to have a Colt but the Kimber just had more going for it in comparison, IMHO. Finding a 2017 for a good price was the trick... it was in Ohio, always the last place you look....!
