I own 2 pistols.
- Kimber Custom II
- Glock 17
If I could only get one... Now I would say Glock 17. It took longer to be as good of a shot with, but the round count and weight take the cake.
Here are the Kimber flaws:
- The coating has worn off in my hand and can see bare metal. I've probably shot less than 1,500 rounds.
- The barrel will wear down the 1911 bushing (eventually) easy part to fix
- Kimber is a girl's name and it's scrolled across an otherwise awesome slide
- My sights came off from the factory and you need a sight press to adjust. (it wasn't me)
Kimber's accuracy out of the box is awesome. And so is Glocks.
Get the Glock and change the plastic sights, 1st thing!!!
If you get a kimber, change the grips from the crappy rubber to classic Coco.
Sorry, don't have a better picture of the glock on my server. (this is my take-down grip):
+Glock is easier to clean and field strip.
+9mm is much cheaper to shoot than .45
+9mm +P hollowpoint should be just as good as a .45 ACP
