New in New England

Hello!
I was introduced to Kimber by my (future, at the time) father in law around twenty years ago. He was a Kimber superfan, owned two and always carried both everywhere (VT ftw!), and regularly fed thousands of rounds through them at the range.

I've been carrying for years, but never had a 1911 and always wanted one. A couple years ago I fell in love the Super Carry Custom, and after years of watching and bidding (and losing) I recently won a "lightly used" black HD model on Gunbroker, which I will be picking up from my semi-local FFL this morning. How "lightly" remains to be seen, but it looked good in pictures. We'll see. I intend to use it as my house gun, but we'll see how well it hides on me.

I've been mulling over several Kimber forums this week, this one seems like the most active and I like the look. I'll probably just keep lurking mostly, but figured I aught to join anyway. So, cheers! Carry on.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois JBear and congratulations on the new to you Kimber Super Carry Custom HD. I'm a Super Carry fan myself and love both my Super Carry Pro and Classic Carry Pro.

You’ve found the perfect Forum alright. If you want to learn about 1911 and particularly Kimber this is the place. Lots of great people here.

JBear, welcome to the site from Tennessee. My most recent GunBroker deal was for a Super Carry Ultra Plus, like Chuck I really like the Super Carry model line.
