If price were no object, which Kimber would you buy and why?

There are so many attractive qualities on each model I suppose you can't get all in one.

Personally, I'm leaning toward a Pro model for my next Kimber. I'd like to make it my EDC.

So, what's your favorite, and why?

I'd like to have the Super Carry Pro HD,not to flashy and the price is not a deal breaker,would be a nice EDC pistol.
Has a solid, aggressive look. I'm not sure about the strap checkering. But it is nice.

I've never seen a SC HD in person but if it's like the SC the checkering is kind of a semi fish scale design, it has no bite what so ever. The two advantages of the SC line in my opinion are a metal main spring housings and no Swartz firing pin safety.

I'd like to have a Gold Combat. They are bad to the bone!!
Roger that! LGS has one in SS and one in blue. Sweet in the hand. Your choice $2,049.

BTW, the Super Carry Pro HD is MSRP $1,699.

You should get one and tell us what you think.

There's no buy it now price on it, it's up for auction starting at $2000.00 for a gun with a MSRP of $2056.00.
Wouldn't surprise me if it sells above MSRP to someone who wants it bad enough.

If I could get it at $2000.00 I'd still end up paying over MSRP after you figure in shipping and FFL transfer fees. I'll probably eventually end up buying one off of gun broker but there are other guns on my wish list ahead of it.

Of Course, I'm Bill Gates...............!!!

Actually, I'm retired on a fixed income!!! However, if money was not object, I'd have to jump on either the Eclipse Pro Target or the Pro Raptor II. Why? Because both of them ooze sexy!!!!
:cool::cool::cool: Either could make a Texas Ranger's barbecue gun feel inferior!! Any other questions?

It has been good and a daily carry. Except for when I am working.

Indeed.
Still, I just couldn't break out the extra grand over the TLE. Played with them both for a spell; pointing, dry firing, you name it. Not much difference for me. I bought the TLE but went there for the Combat. Beautiful guns (I prefer stainless BTW)

Too many choices, too little time..... Since I have two full size Kimbers I would go with a pro for carry. I have an Eclipse Custom so the Eclipse Pro is out.

My decision is between a Master Carry Pro, Super Carry Pro, and Stainless Pro Raptor II. Mr. Makers Mark and I will discuss it this evening while watching the late night Penguins hockey game and make a decision.

I'm hiding the credit cards. If I wake up in the morning and find out Mr. Mark bought one of these on my gun broker account, I'm blaming Gary!

I can take it. I'll even loan you $20.00 toward your first payment. :D :D

This would be the one.Something about the brush polished charcoal blue color and bone grips just grabs my attention.At over $2K though,it better do lap dances and clean my house.

That's a dandy, Jeff!! The only way you could improve on that would be to add genuine elephant tooth, in lieu of bone. General Patton and John Wayne's revolvers made me a big fan of that stuff!!! I know it's expensive as hell, but the man did say......if money was no object!! :D:D:D
