Hi From No. CA

Just got my first Kimber, a Pro Carry II in .45. Although not my first 1911 model, it's certainly my best. I also carry a S&W M&P Shield 9mm mostly in summer wear and an XP .45 in winter. Although I like the single stack, I kind of prefer the .45 chambered guns so I bit the bullet so to speak and got the Kimber. I do love the smooth performance of the trigger over the others. (I have other pistols too of course but these are the ones I mostly carry) My others all had to have trigger work done to make them smoother. If I have one issue on the Kimber it would be the sites. A gun this expensive could have already come with better sites for these tired old eyes. I'll be changing them out soon. I'll report back in after I've got a few hundred rounds down. See ya.

I'm new here too, Just got a Micro 9 Desert/Tan w/CT laser. My first handgun since starting up again. Haven't put a single round through her yet ... but will update the forum when I do. Years ago had a couple of Colt Pythons, .357, Colt Competion Match .45, and a Baretta .380.

You would be sitting pretty if you "still had" a couple of Pythons.
