New from Georgia

Since I see everyone encouraged to introduce themselves here, Im officially doing that. Im a multi great grandfather whos been shooting for close to 60 years. Even though Ive been shooting 1911s since the early 1970s, I really never had a desire for a Kimber......until I held a few K6 revolvers in my LGS a few weeks ago.
Went in Saturday and bought a new K6 DC and shot it Sunday afternoon with a variety of loads. Came in the house and ordered an OWB holster from Matt Whitefield, and the full size walnut grips from Kimber. I love the G10 boot grips on it, but I think my arthritic hands will get a little better purchase on the larger grip.
I am going to LOVE this revolver.
Anyway, Georgia native here to listen and learn from this friendly crowd.
God Bless,
Skip
