Hello fellas,this is my first post & first kimber.
Just bought a solo STS & my questions is what is the best way to carry this pistol? My normal carry is a h&k p2000sk. Am wondering is it safe to carry cocked & locked? I'm not very familiar with theses type of pistols.
I've been carrying my h&k in a crossbreed super tuck.
Thank you in advance and be safe. Also is pocket carry a safe option?

Yes condition 1 if fine. If you're carrying in a pocket you may want a pocket holster.

I carry mine in a DeSantis Super Tuck strong side about 4:00 o'clock.

I bought this for my wife. I carry it more than she does. My other carry is a Super Carry Ultra Plus.

First time out with my new Solo

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------I posted this on the Nevada Shooters Site as well. I think the Clark County Shooting park has gotton a bad rap from some folks. I hope this sheds a better light on the center as well as talking about the Solo!

I purchased a new Kimber Solo CDP LG a couple of weeks ago and the urge to try this gun out built up. I called around to find some extra ammo for target practice and found most places that had any wanted all of the money.
I spent the afternoon at Clark county Shooting park. I must say a very enjoyable afternoon. Every one that I came in contact with was pleasant, courteous, and helpfull. Encluding the range nazis as some people call them. The place was clean, orderly, and well mantained. I did not here any screaming from the RSO's.
I called out there, before the drive out, to see if they had any 9mm ammo in stock. Was told they did, I did not ask the price, just drove out. When I arived and checked in I was told that there was a 3 box limit per each range fee per day. Sounded O.K. to me so I asked for my three. The total came to $61.00. I paid and did not think about it. Later I checked my recipt, was charged $7.00 line fee and 3 boxes of 9mm was $54.00 for a total of $61.00.
I am not complaining, just surprised, that came out to $18.00 per box and no tax. I put 250 rounds through the Solo its a snappy little firearm, and my hand is sore, and tired at 9 and a half yards I had groups of 5 inches, I know
practice, and more practice. but I think I did O.K. the first time out with this gun.
As I was packing up to leave, I was thanked by everyone of the Range nazi's and people working there asked if I had an enjoyable time, and asked to please come back. I have used the center in the past, was not looking for the drive out, but all in all it was a good day and plesant experance. I will go back more often after today!

Your 1st solo flight will be amazing. Mine was about one year ago. boy i remember it like it was yesterday. If you know when it is than you will most likely do what i did...check the weather everyday to see if it is going to be good than when the time comes you will hop skip and jump to the airport. It only happens once so have fun with it you will do just fine. How many hours you at? well anyway keep the grease side down..........

My solo is shooting 8" low right at 15 yards. Maybe it's me but maybe it's the solo. I can say that it's the worst i have shot any gun I own.

I've only shot 100 rounds through it before I had to send it back and I did inform Kimber of the low right groups its shooting and they agreed to check it. So when I get it back I will give it another chance or determine if its me or the gun. Probably a bit of both.

Mine shoots pretty good. Did you send it back also to fix the safety issue?
Should come back tweaked to the max. I hope so for your sake. I know you're frustrated with Kimber right now. Maybe they will be able to resolve all issues to your satisfaction. Good Luck

Hopefully they checked it but it very well could be me not use to the heavy trigger pull.

I decided to send the gun back and let them repair the issue. Ultimately it was the easiest and quickest thing to do and they did assure me it would be returned quickly. I just wanted to be treated fair and an open ended repair date is not fair to me.
