I've owned Kimbers before. I can't imagine outsourcing the break-in period! An owner needs that opportunity of 500 rounds to just get to know their new pistol. If you can't even take the time to break in your own gun, then you shouldn't be carrying a 1911. Just my opinion, though.

You gotta get to know your sidearm.

(But I still have this personal thing against Series 80's)
Live and learn. When we stop learning, we stop living! It's the human condition and the better we do it, the higher quality of life we experience!

Dan, I'm not a big Series 80 fan but.....if I needed to continue down the Colt's ownership path; with mine being S80s and you cornering S70 ownership, I could live with it.

With that said, my EDC is the S70 Commander.

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!

As a person we should strive to be like Cane and as a pistol enthusiast, we should be considered lucky to know half of what Cane has learned over the years.

I don't consider it hero worship, I look at it as being smart enough to know good advice the first time. I learned those hard lessons from my dad as a kid. He was always right wasn't he? And I always wrong. And lessons learned then are now applied today. Canebrake is my 1911 final word. But that's just me. Frank

Wow---All i can say is----------Well--WOW

Chris you hit the nail on its head!

I know several people that have and carry pistols that they have far less than 500 rounds experience with the gun. I need to trust my sidearm to depend on it and that only comes with intimate and continuous interaction.

We can outsource work, but we can not outsource experience.

Agree, while i "dislike" the term 500rd break in i agree the Kimber needs all the "break in" it can get
If you carry any handgun that you haven't fired at least 500 times I -------
I just don't know what to say

My average practice session is around 500 rounds. So you can imagine the round count on any one of my carry guns. The majority of them through my 1911s through the years. Hell, I'd put 500 rounds through someones 1911 anytime. Sound like fun !!!!!!!!

My grandpa always said," id ya aint learnin somthin new everyday ya might as well be dead".
With that said, i enjoy the 1911 forom and am constantly learning something new. Its the knowledge that cane is not afraid to share that makes him stand out. For that i applaued him and will always listen ti what he has to say. There are others on here in diffent areas that i would also listen to and learn from. Olympus his grips are awesome and he seams to be very knowlegable to what he speaks, there for i will pay attention and hopefully learn more. There are many orhers on here that come up with good info, maybe not all the time but excellent none the less. I may not know as much as others on here, but to those who share the 100% true knowledge thank you.
