Greetings from SW Florida

Hello everyone,
First, Silverbullet was a nickname for a silver 200+ HP Yamaha snowmobile when I lived up north and Iíve use that name on other forums so Iíve stuck with it here.
Shooting over 50 years and my passions were model 70 style rifles, magnum revolvers and shotguns. The only auto loading handgun Iíve owned was a light weight colt commander that promptly destroyed itself after 50 rounds of 230 g hardball! That gun was promptly returned! My love for Kimber was really their rifles and I still have a beautiful walnut stocked 22lr back up north in my brothers gun cabinet. Left all my guns there when I moved to Florida to take a job so I havenít done any shooting for 10 years. Iíve now decided to get my CCL and when it came time to purchase a new gun Kimber was my first choice. A Master Carry Pro with laser grips in 45 caliber. Because I love the round butt on the 1911 and It fits my hand perfectly. Iím hoping to hit the range next week so Iíll let you know how everything works.

Lots of great information on this site. Thank you!

Mark

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois Mark. Read your owners manual, clean and lube the gun before your first range visit and you will be good to go.

To few words? Haha, hit the wrong tab and quoted myself, didn't even know it would do that...? Was just trying to add pic to original post.
