Howdy!

Well it was a short but convoluted path to my first Kimber.

Just picked up a Stainless TLE II .45 and LOVE it! Only shot it once, 50 rnds, so far it's flawless. I've field stripped it and cleaned and oiled a few times and feel comfortable with it.

First time out I was shooting better than any of my previous guns!

I don't think I ever researched so much about a product aside maybe a truck and boy you gotta filter through some BS and use your own judgement! I wont name any names but a LOT of brands that were recommended instead…well…I don't know man…they left something to be desired. The Kimber impressed me on first glance and each rack of the slide like non other. The fit and finish in another class altogether from "similar" priced guns. All I can figure is since the price was a bit higher they don't get compared with production guns but custom shop and the Baer's et al….but they ARE production guns!

Anyway glad to be here and I can't believe Hayduke handle was left on the table still!

So that's me; Hayduke.

See ya around

Nice into, Hayduke. Congrats on the new Kimber. I think we've all experienced that moment of realization concerning the beauty, shootability, and value of Kimbers. Yeah, the 'other guys' will call us 'fan boys' or similar, but I don't care. 10 minutes after my wife and I put our hands on the first Kimbers we'd ever held, they were ours.

Anyway, greetings and welcome to the crew.
