I used to have a Stainless Target II and regret selling it. Although, I did pick up a Sig p220 Equinox with the proceeds!

I have had a Kimber Ultra Carry II with CT grips and Trijicon night sights for maybe 4 years now. Its the gun in my nightstand. Wonderful shooter, sure, its short and snappy, but perfect weight to balance the muzzle flip. Absolutely love it. Its my "cool gun" to take out and show off at the range.

My Ultra Carry II didnt come with CT but I just recently added it. Crimson Trace Master Series (Rosewood). Its sweet!

I have the stainless Gold Match II. I like it, but now I have an STI calling my name.

I recently picked up an Ultra TLE II. The 3" barrel and alloy frame really knock some weight off for carry. The night sights are a big improvement over blade sights on other 1911s I've handled.

If using as a CCW, toooooo pricy and not worth dropping it around with normal wear and tear..

I carry my TLE II pro all the time, and I never have worried about dropping it. It is a tool like any other.

Same here. I carry my CDP Ultra and even my Ed Brown and I don't worry about wear or dropping them. They are tools and I bought them to use.
