Hello everyone. Just purchased my first Kimber 1911 Ultra carry 11. Long story short. Lost my best friend 5 years ago to cancer. He purchased his first 2 months before he passed. I can still see the smile on his face when he picked it up for the first time. My lasting image of him will be in my mind everytime i reach for mine. Haven't had the pleasure of firing
It yet but does it ever feel good in my hands! Anyway hello from Missouri. I've been on here a couple of weeks just reading. A lot of good information available. Thanks

Welcome aboard.

When you say "Kimber 1911 Ultra carry 11," do you actually mean UC2?

If so, I have the same pistol.

My advice is to get to know the regulars here. We're a clannish entourage, and like any prison crowd, we like to get to know the newbies.

Yes. Sorry I put 11 instead of 2. I Have several firearms but this one means a lot to me. I'm excited to learn all I can about it.

Welcome to the Forum from Florida. As you know from reading there is a wealth of knowledge on this Forum, enjoy.
As for your UC2 you’re gonna love it. Mine is with me 24/7 and has been for 3 years now. Wouldn’t leave home without it.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois. Read your owners manual, break down, clean and lube your new Kimber before making your first range visit. Use the factory recommended FMJ ammo for the break in and you will be good to go.
