As of right now in shooting a stainless ultra carry but I'm in the market for a stainless raptor ii. I have about 72 other guns but only the 1 Kimber so far but I'm now addicted to them so I will be adding a few more to my collection. :)

How can you call yourself a fanatic with only 72 guns? Sheesh.
Oh well, welcome from Kentucky!

Tell us why you're addicted to your Kimber and how you think it compares to other guns you have.

You are right I should probably pick up a few more. :D in comparison to my other handguns I would say the difference is phenomenal. It's very smooth, well balanced ( with a loaded mag). Tight tolerances, and the finish is second to none that I have handled. Can't say enough good about it

Yeah, a guy in a gun store hands me a polymer pistol he says he really likes and I wondered if he liked that it looked a lot like my kids toy guns or was it the rays of sunshine you could see between the slide and frame?

My son has a CZ75B....nice gun, but when he shot my Kimber he noticed he shot a tighter pattern than with his own gun.

I guess those plastic guns serve a purpose, they do make guns more affordable for people. Of course if they weren't so damn affordable we probably wouldn't have the ammo shortage we do.

I have a few polymer pistols and as far as accuracy my Springfield xdm is as accurate as my kimber mind you I'm shooting an ultra carry so not quite as much barrel. After shooting the several handguns side by side it was clear I needed to sell done "toy" handguns and purchase a few more kimbers I'm looking for a stainless raptor maybe in a pro so I can have a tac driver

As the owner of two Pro model Kimbers I can say they are indeed tack drivers. I think they're the best of two worlds they're accurate and concealable.
