I posted once in the 1911 Forums but wanted to check in at the front desk...

New (happy) Kimber owner here.

I am getting back into shooting after a 15 year hiatus (My daughter is now of age my wife felt safer with it).

After getting my Beretta, I decided to try out a 1911 to see what the fuss was about. My LGS has a free rental friday so I decided to try a few out, the first I picked up was a Kimber. First trigger pull, bullseye, smooth...

Went to the range with a good friend... He asks if I want to try out his Kimber. He has a Pro Carry II. He was shooting a little right that day, and so I stepped in and first shot, bullseye... really smooth!

Went to leave that range and what do I see in the used case?

It appears they had my gun waiting for me... :)

Ain't it nice how gun shops can have exactly what you are looking for, when you just happen to have that much money available!!! Enjoy your new Kimber. Why not get your daughter started with it?:cool: Shoot often and be safe!! ;);)

Nice looking Kimber. Is that an Eclipse?

Welcome from Ky. I have a Stainless Pro Carry II. It makes me a better shooter, and when others try it, they suddenly look at their own gun with a slight bit of disappointment. My son has a CZ75B and shot mine once and said "hmmm...I shot a tighter pattern with your gun..."

The proof, as they say, is in the pudding....

My first 3 magazines through my Eclipse.

That's a good target. No matter how many I put in the center, I always have one or two strays at 7:00. I'm working on learning to control that though.

As I was saying....this is one magazine. Second shot is the stray. Apparently it's the muscle memory of expecting the recoil. I'm practicing by dry firing some to alter my muscle memory.
