Being the new guy, I hereby comply with a request to post pics of the kids. Not Present: New Mako R7. I posted a photo of that in its equally new Vedder holster under a separate thread.
Agree more is better.Looks great!
Now you'll be needing a pro and full sized Kimber.
Ahh, you DO need a full sized .45 1911.Agree more is better.
The Ultra Carry is as big as I have gone with Kimber. I have a couple of 1911s. An S&W Performance Center is the nicest among those. All are .45. No full size 1911's in 9mm or 10mm. Yet.
The 10mm Kimber's have been calling my name though. My hesitation has been having to stock up on yet another caliber. Especially with prices being what they are.
I thought the Solo's might raise some comments. I mentioned in another post that I adopt rescue dogs nobody wants. I wont beat that rug. I got them running OK with a little tweaking and using select ammo.
As the Zen philosopher Basho once said, "On a dark deserted street, a mouse in your pocket is better than a set of bongos."I understand about the Solo.
I have a thing for shitty mouse guns too.
I like mouse guns.. but I am not crazy enough to carry them for self defense.As the Zen philosopher Basho once said, "On a dark deserted street, a mouse in your pocket is better than a set of bongos."
Occasionally someone at the range scoffs about my 380 or small .22. I suggest they point one at their groin and pull the trigger. If the round doesn't penetrate their denim and tighty whiteys, the beer is on me.
Right tool for the right job. I never met a pistol I didn't like. Unless it was a Taurus.👈
Taurus had great customer service until they were caught up in a lawsuit a few years back, by a cop that was an idjit and had a negligent discharge.Kidding aside, I have had a couple of decent Taurus wheel guns. But my experience with their customer service with semi autos was not good. Twice. Any mass produced firearm can have issues or recalls. I get that. It's how the company handles it that separates the good from the bad. That's the kiss of death for me with a gun maker, shop or other service. Jerking me around or taking weeks to fix a defect guarantees that I won't come back.
I've heard people complain about Kimber support but the couple of times I needed them they were responsive and solved the issue quickly with no runaround. Over the years, I have had good experiences with Ruger, Springfield, Beretta and Sig support also. Some better than others but overall satisfactory.
I'd rather have a real Beretta 92. Wait. I do have a real Beretta.View attachment 130434
They can make excellent guns in Brazil.
They just can't design them for shit.
The PT92 is a fantastic gun.
The better Taurus offerings these days are born in Bainbridge, GA.
For the record I agree most Taurus guns are terrible.
Even a blind squirrel finds a nut from time to time
I really like the 92 but to me, it just ain't worth what Beretta wants for a new one.I'd rather have a real Beretta 92. Wait. I do have a real Beretta.
But I also have a Girsan and I must say that it is an excellent copy of the Italian or Akokeekian (Maryland) version. The Turks have it all over Brasil when it comes to making guns. Then again, Turkey doesn't have the same scenery.
The struggle is real with 10mm. I recently added 10mm and I have yet to see a 50rd box of ammo on a shelf. $43/20rds of self defense ammo… not a chance.The 10mm Kimber's have been calling my name though. My hesitation has been having to stock up on yet another caliber. Especially with prices being what they are.
