You can find a Kimber for 800$?

Get a Colt and be happy!

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!

Never owned a Kimber but I know they're excellent. If that's what you're heart is set on, then get it. But with $800 the field is wide open to ya. Go to youtube and do a search on any gun you're interested in. There are a bazillion excellent gun review vids there. But I warn you. Watching them can become addictive. It is for me.

If I were to get a 45 it would be the Springfield Armory XDM 45ACP 5.25 Competition model for $740 from Bud's Guns. But that's just me. You should get what YOU want. Really, do the youtube thing.

Yes, where do you get one for $800? I went to the next step and bought the Solo CDP with the Crimson Trace laser OTD for $1200.
