Default Kimber Ultra Carry II for CC

Anyone have any experience carrying with a Kimber Ultra Carry? How is it in terms of feel, concealability, weight, etc.?

If you got pics of your CC set-up with this gun that would be great!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Its not a tack driver thats for sure. As for carry the grip still prints if you wear it under your shirt. If youre set on kimber check out the solo

I had a great ultra covert II and I think its a great cc pistol and self-defense weapon but not a go to war gun. Mine would have some feeding issues after about 50 rounds but it would dupm out a few full mags in a crissis no issues. I however did sell it and went with a full sized Sig. I also didn't Care for the fact it needed a special little tool to field strip it for cleaning.

I love the crimson trace grips and skeleton trigger so I added those features to my Sig, would part with it for bail money.

Mouse guns in .45 ACP are great for what they are, CQB guns, close as in smell the tango's bad-breath close. I'm talkin' stipple leavin' close.

If you want the best, take a look at the Colt Defender or New Agent. Neither needs a bobby pin to field strip.

Not totally set on Kimber. I'm just looking for a good quality carry gun that is small enough to conceal and be comfortable. Currently I have an XD 45 w/ 4" barrel, so you can imagine my issues with concealing it...I plan to keep that as my under the bed weapon due it's 13+1 capacity and great accuracy.

I'm also looking at the S&W Shield .40. The width is 0.9", which is a huge difference from both my current XD and all the Kimber 1911's (usually 1.2")

Sounds like the concensus is 1911's are not a good CC weapon

Yeah I agree. But I think if I did encounter a situation where I would need to pull my CCW, it would be a CQB. Because let's face it, if they are 25 yards away, am I really in a life or death situation? Unless they had a gun and were firing at me from afar. But not as likely a scenario. So I'm ok with the short barrel mouse gun.

THanks for the suggestion on the Defender. That looks like a nice quality, smaller, carry gun
