Both are great guns. I want a Kimber but own 2 Glocks. I agree with others and say if this is your first then go with Glock. You can put it up and know each and every time you grab it, it will be ready. And for half the price. I picked up my G27 used for 375 at a gun show.

But you can't knock Kimber for sure. Awesome guns.

Kimber or Glock?

Back door or front door?

Yellow and Blue make Green!

Strictly for Home Defense...
Glock claims no break-in time. (i believe it)
Kimber claims 500-round break in time. During that time, I've had 3 FTFs. POST... i haven't had any.

If you want one thats easy to carry, try the one in the pic at the bottom. It's the one I carry 90% of the time, it's the Detonics MK-VI. It holds 6 rds. and 1 in the chamber, if you can't back yourself out of a bad situation with 7 rounds of 45. then I don't know what to tell ya.

I own both a Glock 34 and a full size Kimber Stainless II .45acp and really enjoy both of them. I use my G34 for USPSA competitions and target shooting where as I got my Kimber just to have and carry with me. For home defense though I would probably go with the 1911 .45acp, but that's just one man's opinion

Most +p+ LE ammo is loaded very close to the NATO spec.
continued use will not damage a Glock, Beretta, SIG, HK or most other modern pistols. That's the pressure level they were designed for.

I load all of my 9mm practice ammo to +P+ velocity specs. (I have no way to measure pressure) Thousands upon thousands of rounds have not caused any wear on my SIGs, Beretta or Glocks

And BTW, this is the same ammo spec that was considered."standard pressure" in Europe during WW2.

This is like asking Porche or Chevy? Both will get you to work and do the job. What really matters is what do you like better? I own Kimbers and a few Glocks. It really depends on what you prefer, feels good and what do you shoot well?
