Hello from Arkansas

Hello all,
New to the Kimber Family and this forum as well. Iíve always eyed the Kimber line as I shop for a new gun but, was always reluctant to shell out the bucks. Well, I did it! Got my hands on a new Kimber Evo SP CS model. I had the gun shop dealer do a quick clean up and drop some lube in it and took it straight to the range. I only had time for 50 rounds but that was enough to say, I really, really like this gun. I also own the Sig P365 (which I really like also). Size comparison is relatively the same. Kimber is just a bit longer. I love how it feels in my hand. With any gun how it feels doesnít equate to performance though so, Saturday, Iíll run another 200 or so rounds through it and get a better idea on performance. I will say, the 50 rounds I shot (124 grain FMJ Magtech) was very pleasant to shoot. Glad I made the jump to a Kimber for EDC, beautiful firearm. Oh, yes, I called Kimber and asked what they recommend for a carry holster. I love the Kydex holsters but they say a leather holster to reduce finish wear. They have a DeSantis IWB leather holster on their site for I think 39 bucks. Canít beat that price for leather. I ordered and itís on itís way. Thanks and hope to learn more about my new Kimber with experienced Kimber owners. Slabstick

Welcome to the Forum from Florida. And dare I say your new holster will be the first of many more to come.
