Just ordered my first Kimber, for the wife. Pro CDP in 9mm. Have a few other 1911’s, but new to Kimber. Just want to learn the ins and outs from folks that have owned them for awhile.

Welcome from Northeast, Pa.

Congratulations on your new Kimber, read your manual, clean and lube your gun before you shoot it, use the recommended ammo and rack the slide a bunch of times after you finish cleaning. Then of course shoot the hell out of it.

Hey Ya'll!!

Welcome to the forum from beautiful downtown Monroe, Georgia!!!

Congrats on the new CDP! How about posting some pictures and a range report after your first range session? We like that kind of junk (as Wally and the Beaver used to say!)

How old are you? Do you remember Leave It To Beaver?
wally & the beaver.jpg <----"Hey Wally, do you think Dad will buy us a Kimber Raptor?"
"Naw Beav, Dad's too cheap for that. Maybe he'll just give us that damn old Glock POS that he shots instead!! He's almost as much of a creep as Eddie Haskell!!!"
"Golly Wally, that's just like Jolly Ranchers.......IT JUST KEEPS ON SUCKIN'!!!!"

Eddie Haskell-Alice Cooper.jpg
Yes, Eddie Haskell did grow up to be Alice Cooper!!

Enjoy your new shooter, Steve. Be sure to let the Mrs. shoot a round or two!! Glad to have you with us. Shoot straight and be safe!!
