Hello from Washington (the State)

I have been active on the S&W Forum, and have had quite a few S&W and Ruger revolvers, and, long ago, a Ruger 22 semi auto.
My new 3 inch K6S is my first Kimber. I bought it Tuesday, and within 2 hours, had run 105 rounds down range. 100 reloads consisting of plated bullets over a plus P load of HP-38 (in MGN cases), and 5 of the carry rounds I use in my S&W M642 (Federal 130 gr HST micro). I look forward to working further with load development and shooting.
I traded a 3 inch S&W M686 for the K6S. I liked the 686, but, at 74, I have a lot of wrist pain, and that revolver was just too heavy for me to hold. The K6S seems to be just about right, and the grip helps.
For those interested, my user name is the phonetic words for MW, my ham radio call suffix.
