Hi, Just bought a new ultra crimson carry II. But we have to much snow up here and they will plow our range. So I'm on hold with trying it out. But cant wait.
Thought I would hang out here and learn some new things.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois guitarman62, while you're waiting for your range to open read your owners manual and give your ultra crimson carry II a good cleaning and lube.

Welcome from Ky. If you want first-hand experiences about Kimbers, you're in the right place.

Yesterday, on the way to the range I stopped at a LGS to pick up a few boxes of ammo and noticing the clerk wore a holstered pistol, I asked him "so, you like 1911s?." He nodded and said something to the effect that 1911s were the only pistols he cared to own. Not trying to impress, but just curious, I said "is that a Kimber Crimson Pro Carry HD." Since all I could see was the grip, hammer and mainspring housing it was a pretty good guess. Impressive apparently because he was impressed. Then I told him about my Kimber—a stainless Pro Carry II that looked exactly like his, minus the laser. He then told me about several other Kimbers he owned and I thought "yep, bit by the same bug." Though a small store, it is becoming my favorite. I picked up a new bottle of Hoppe's and some patches and headed to the range to satisfy my own bug.

I{we} get more compliments from people at the range when they walk by our stall and look down at the 3 Kimbers laying there.The ladies are more impressed with GiGi's Ultra TLE 3in and most had thought it was too much gun for a chick to shoot/carry until they watch her shoot it with accuracy the way she does...

Greetings from southern Utah.
I once spend a week in Southern Utah at a little motel on the banks on the San Juan river close to Mexican Hat. The landscape was so strange to a Kentucky boy, I thought we'd landed on the moon. We were doing a photo shoot in Monument Valley and I got quite the education on the ins and outs of dealing with the aunts of the local tribe who control "grazing rights." I had hired an Indian guide so I sorta knew what the payola routine would be. We had already paid the tribe a couple thousand bucks to shoot there but I brought about $3,000 in cash and every time an aunt would show up the guide would tell me how much I needed to pay-usually about $150. At the end of the week, they had cleaned me out. As we were packing up, here comes another woman and I didn't know what I was going to do since I didn't think they'd take American Express. Then she uncovered a basket of bread she made as a gift. It was very sweet and a good ending to a week on the moon.

It is kinda surreal in places. We did Bryce Canyon once when a couple of us went to Utah early for a meeting we were having in Salt Lake. That is one beautifully strange place, too.

I'm 90 minutes from Bryce and 45 minutes from Zion. It's a stunning motorcycle ride and this time of year I have the parks all to myself ( well, kinda). It makes you wonder what the hell happened many many years ago.

It was incredibly beautiful there...for a place with no trees or grass! But strange for sure. It was hard to see the poverty the Native Americans lived in though. The cowboy movies always manage to show those monuments without showing the little shacks.
