I just bought my first Kimber, Pro-Carry II stainless 9mm. Taking it to range in the morning. This not my first 1911, I've owned 1911's for the last 40 years. They have been all Colts and military surplus. I'm really impressed with the worksmanship on the Kimber. If it shoots half as good as it looks it should be a winner.
I have a PCII in a 9mm and a 45 and enjoy them both for different reasons.
I can by a box of 500 9mm for $120 from Freedom Munitions and have an awesome range day without breaking the bank.
Or I can carry it with some hollow points and still feel protected if the need comes along.
I have 3 nine's and 3 45's so I can say I love them all..
