Default Brought my Kimber home yesterday!

Most of you know I've been trying to decide what I should buy, an XD45 compact or a 1911 and which 1911. Well, I've been watching auctions and local papers rather closely to see what might surface and I found this......









Came with the factory mag and the 11 rd Wilson combat, it's only had 100-150 rounds thru it. I've got to round up some more mags for it though.
Yes, that price tag reads $879 but I couldn't pass up the deal on this thing. I got it for $650 dealer transfer, shipping and all. I seriously need to get to a range!

I dont know if anyone can see those pics, I have to dance around the stupid network settings at work. If you can't see them, go here

http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2443691/7

The pics are loaded there, my wife's SP101 is at the bottom too. For some reason I couldn't get to the image properties to upload it here. If a mod wants to take the time to correct it, feel free.

Very nice and an excellent price too. Enjoy.

It's about damn time! And glad you finally got it. What was it? Like a week in waiting.

Excellent price for an excellent weapon.

Looking forward to seeing how you shoot with it. I am expecting good things...

Wasn't quite a week but close to it...the guy I bought it from was great. Auction ended, paid for it the next day, he shipped it the following morning and 4 days later I picked it up.

That's cool. It's always good to have a positive online sales experience.

How's the stock trigger on it? I presume you have been dry firing it like a mad man... LOL

I can't remember: Nightsights?
