New guy checking in from Virginia

Hello all,
I've been a lurker for some while now, so I figured I may as well join up. Now I can have access to the search function as well as have the ability to interact with other members.
After much research, and many hours spent reading reviews, specs, and articles, I just recently purchased my first Kimber.
I chose the Kimber Ultra CDP II, or you might say "it" chose me.
I have a number of firearms, long guns, pistols, the usual. My nightstand/home defense pistol is a Sig Sauer P227 .45. While it's an excellent home defense choice, it tends be a bit unfriendly in the concealed carry department. It's just too big. So this set into motion my search for a great CCW. I knew I wanted a quality pistol, a carry defense weapon is something you stake your life on, not the time to go the cheap route. I knew I wanted a .45 caliber. As I said, this is my first Kimber, but I've been a long time Kimber fan. The choices were many, but I am more than pleased with my decision to pick up the Ultra CDP II.
I look forward to interacting with the group as well as learning more about this fine example, you might say work of art, of a firearm that I have the pleasure of owning. I have a feeling this will not be my one and only Kimber.

Welcome from Big Sky Country. You do have good taste in guns. I've. been considering a new night stand piece; Sig P226. What do you have in way of night vision aids on the Sig?

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois Jason and congratulations on the new Ultra CDP II. When you say "I chose the Kimber Ultra CDP II, or you might say "it" chose me." I know exactly what you went through, the same thing happened to me when I walked into my LGS and saw one sitting in the case. It was love at first fondling.

I saw my Eclipse pro on the back page of a magazine and knew I had to have it. The only time I picked it up and handle it was the day I purchased it. I'd say "it chose me"
