Hello, My name is Chuck. I reside in Bucks County,Pennsylvania. I just purchased my 1st Kimber (new) for my Birthday last week. It is a Pro Crimson Carry II with green laser. This is my 1st 45acp gun. I have always had 9mm Sig's. I still have a P938 conceal carry pistol. I am waiting patiently to go to the range and shoot this beautiful pistol.
I am semi retired,a guy who loves cars, and motorcycles. I have been detailing cars of all calipers for 35 years. I also love to detail my guns and make them better or should I say perform better if possible and look better. I hope to break in this new CC II before I start working my magic on it. I will post pics when changes are made to show what's going on. Right now it is bone stock and to me looks like a catalog gun.
I am happy to be a member here and looking forward to all your knowledge and learning all about Kimber's. I have been wanting one for quite some time. To me these guns are IT! Love the look, feel, and finish they offer. I hope it is as accurate as I have read.

Thanks....Chuck:)

Welcome the the forum from northern Illinois Chuck. I think you're going to like it here, we've got a lot of retired and semi retired members. I happen to be a bit of a car guy myself, still driving the 23 T Bucket I built back in 67.

My Pro Crimson is as stock as can be. Here is a few photos of one of the cars I drive and detail often on weekends. 2004 Lamborghini Gallardo Twin Turbo Supperleggera.

I'd be afraid to drive that because if I broke it I could never afford to fix it! I bet it's a fun ride though.

OscarZ, It's a fun ride for sure. If it beaks, it gets fixed. Power is about 800 to wheels, but the motor is out being built for more boost as we speak. Only at 8 lbs not. Will be 25-30 lbs. Will have close to 1000 whp on pump gas. That's what it is being built for. At 10 grand for the clutch, that's what I worry more about. The other parts should not break to easily.:) I hope! LOL

We have way too many Chucks now but we voted to raise the Chuck ceiling, so you're in. :cool: Welcome from Ky! Kimbers and cars. Cars and Kimbers...you'll fit in well.

As for mods, we've got more mods than the '60s.

Best to show pics now and then with the mods. Common modifications are the guide rod and spring to avoid the need for a break-down tool. Grips of course and main spring housing changes, some to add mag wells. And Wilson Combat mags are popular.

As for the accuracy, I only know mine is as advertised. And when I have let others shoot my Kimber, they tend to start crying, then cradle it like a baby.

Enjoy the forum, Chuck.

That's a sweet looking car, I doubt if I could even figure out how to open the hood. Fortunately I don't have that problem with my T- bucket LOL.

My son likes Lamborghinis so I tease him by saying they're "Italian trash." That burns him up. I'd have to win the lottery before deciding on a Lambo or something else would be a problem. Just like the 1911, the classic styling of Porsches always appealed to me, so I sold a couple of the kids and bought a used one. It's my daily driver. A woman driving a Taurasaurus once asked me "don't you ever get tired of driving something like that".....I couldn't decide whether to laugh at her or smack her senseless.
