when I was a kid and always remembered the experience. I hunt big dangerous Wild Boars in the Atchafalaya Basin & have been wanting to add a 10mm to my tool kit.
Well this week I came across a deal that I couldnít pass up. I was concerned about recoil of the 10mm, but after a visit to the range I am very impressed with how well the gun handles; the weight absorbs much of the felt recoil.
Looking forward to Boar Busting with my new Kimber!

Had to look up Atchafalaya Basin. It reminded me that I've never been on a boat in a swamp, and I need to do that. We were supposed to visit friends outside Lafayette, but then the Wuhan thing went down, and we had to cancel our flight.

Your new 10mm is a beauty. I like black guns, I cannot lie, full size is better, in my eyes.

Itís a hoot, you need to do it, itís a very unique culture. Itís how my Grandfather used to hunt, how I hunt and now my son as well.
