New to Kimber, not to guns

So I just bought my first Kimber Pro Carry 2 and I'm loving it so far, I also have a Wilson Combat and some other stuff. I also collect custom knives and like go fast cars, mine is a moded Subaru WRX with 300+ bhp. I was in the Army for 8 years, 4 months, and 26days. But who's counting? Right? Looking forward to getting to know some good people and get some good information about this new weapon.

Welcome to the forum bullseye0169 from Northern Illinois. From the sounds of it I'd say we like the same things. I've got a 75 big block Chevelle, 23 Ford T bucket and a nice collection 1911's.

Welcome to the group. That Subaru is a very surprising, very under-rated car. Oh and uh Wilsons are pretty good pistols too!
My go fast is the wife's '13 Mustang. My go fun car is my Miata. and my pure pleasure ride is my Ultra Glide. Overall, I'd say you're in the right area.

Any T Bucket is a handful on the best of days, but a blast to drive and, the Miata handles better than most people ever gave them credit for. The Mustang, well I'd like to like them, but Fords don't like me. And not for not trying, I've owned a few and we just didn't get along.

To say the least hahaha, 452 HP, 1800 lbs with a full tank of gas and a 98" wheelbase. Keeping the front wheels on the ground and your butt from bitting a hole in the seat is the hard part.

Holy cow, that's a beautiful T. What's the garage:road ratio on that thing?

That's a hard one to answer, considering there is no roof, side windows, windshield wipers, heater or air conditioning and the fact that I live in Northern Illinois (think winter and snow). I originally built it in 1967 and have continued to rebuild it over the last 46 years. Between April and early October I take it out every day I can, it's not a trailer queen.
