hello everyone

I am new to Kimber guns, I will pick up my 1st one next Friday (10 day wait in CA.)
I got the Kimber 1911 ss 10mm target 2, was looking for a 10mm for a long time, only ones I could find were Glocks and I don't do Glocks I won't buy a ugly gun, it needs to look good and shoot better. also S&W Revolver, I have 44 and 357mag revolvers didn't want anymore, being in CA not a lot of choices, checked the list and Kimber had what I wanted and it looked great, so been checking all the forums to see how they shot, pretty mixed review, most of all the people who have problems with them didn't read how to brake it in, I have 2 other 1911, and some shot great coming out the box and some said 200 rounds, to help them along I use white tooth paste clean them put it on the slide put it back together and run the slide back and front 300 time break it down clean it again, and it has a smooth slide, than I go to the range, once I get it, I will post photos and give you the rundown on how it did, started buying ammo for it a couple of months ago. so if you have any advise just want to say Hi all good.
