Hi from Michigan's west coast

Just picked up an Ultra 10ii .45 and just learning the ropes. I found a few sites that condemn my gun so I thought I'd seek refuge in a place with people who might just know a bit more.

Welcome from Southern California the real west coast. We welcome all gun owners here. I think a lot of Kimber bashers do not want to spend the money on a Kimber so they talk it down to give themselves an excuse not to buy one. I used to think they were to expensive also until I found one at a price I could not pass up. Now I have three all purchased in the last six months.

Welcome to the forum from The Lou...

Glad you found us and we aren't a bit judgmental on any brand of firearm...

Good luck...

Thank Tom....I saw the gun on a gun trade site and talked to a local dealer and,as luck would have it, he's an authorized dealer. Always liked the brand and I'm glad I stepped up and got it.
Hope to use this forum to get the best out of my gun.

Tim, welcome to the site from Tennessee. Congrats on your Kimber. Ignore the haters. I don't think there are any around here, if they do show up they don't hang around very long.

You have went and done it now, soon you will start having thoughts of which Kimber you need next, most of us have a list. Lot of experience on this sight.

Welcome from Oklahoma.
Even though this is a Kimber forum you will find the membership is into almost any brand out there, but leans heavily towards 1911 style guns.
They are not bashful about letting you know what they think of any particular gun and it is not uncommon for them to favor an opposing brand to the Kimber.
So you will not find us trashing any certain gun just because it is or isn't a Kimber.
I think you will enjoy you stay on this forum.
