Hello from NC

I'm new to 1911s and forums in general. I've wanted a full size 1911 in 9mm for a while now and plan to make the jump soon. Haven't made up my mind on which one to get yet. I've been eyeing a few Kimbers, specifically the stainless and the aegis. Nice to be able to access all this information here. Look forward to chatting.

Welcome to the site from Tennessee. Can't really make a "wrong" choice. Just so you know Kimber has increased the number of models that are now available in 9mm. Some models are still dedicated 9mm but a lot are .45acp and 9mm.

Welcome to KT from Northeast, Pa.

The next gun I want is a 9mm 1911 4” and I’m really leaning towards the Aegis Elite Pro. I know it’s not happening soon and I want to see one in person before I make my final decision.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois 1911nine.
I'm suspicious of people who don't like dogs.
But trust a dog when it doesn't like a person.
