New to Kimber

Hello from Texas, I am new to Kimber. I have been shooting since the early 60's and started hand guns in 76.

I shot 1911's on a pistol team for a while and then got away for a spell then had a llama for a while then got caught up in the Glock craze now adding a Kimber to the family. Being retired I hope to run through 200-300 bangs a week

Welcome from the high desert of central Orygun!

If you plan on shooting that much now that you're retired, you may want to consider what I did after retirement.....getting a Dillon progressive loader (RL550B). After all, you've got all the time in the world now, right?

I try to get at least 300 rounds downrange each week too. Old guys need to stay in practice.
