well i made my decision even though i never really liked the rail or the ambi safety i held a kimber warrior and i fell in love with it today so i signed the paperwork. Ill pick it up on monday. The guys at the shop called it used but it may have fired 10 rounds. the best part is i got it for 900.00 There is a 4-6 month backorder on kimbers and just about everything else according to the guys at my local shop so i guess the rail and the ambi safety are ok.

My road rash feels better already lol

? It's probably like the "evil black" rifle thing; my xd45 is olive drab to throw them off. I've known some methheads (+ just about every other kind of "druggie"); if you have to shoot one, use the biggest round you can. They aren't the brightest bunch & might not notice at first if you use something small. Now, potheads, well, just let us finish the J & we'll usually come along real peacefully.

i hope i dont seem like a giant tool for making an inpulse buy.

do you guys think 900 for a kimber warrior with 10-20 rnds through it is a bad deal? cause it seemed pretty good to me and it was in stock and anything else would be 6 months down the road.

WTF??? Oh nevermind!

They are not on the shelves because every new gun is spoken for!

First off, congrats on the purchase! A Warrior was/is my first 1911, and it's a fantastic firearm; got mine for 1k (also slightly used, no visible wear except a little on the safety) so I'd say that yours at 900 was a great deal

Did you get a black one, or the tan/olive color?

Since you don't have pictures of yours, here's something to tide over 'til Monday =)

i got the black finish if they would have had a flat dark earth one for that price i most likely would have gone in that taticool sandbox ninja direction, but anyway nice piece you got here.
