I have had a Kimber for quite some time. I own 32 handguns and would say that my Kimber is among my top 3 depending on what day it is. If you can hold out to get one I surly would. I have never regretted and always enjoyed my decision on purchasing one.

Depends on if the firearm is approved in California, obviously, but some dealers will not ship to California, I guess because they don't want the hassle of worrying about California's laws.

The Gun Broker links Cane provided may be for different dealers & they'll usually state in their info if they will ship to California. Also, you can go to Gun Broker's home page, click on the "Buyers" link at the top, scroll down & click on "Locate an FFL". There will be a place to put in your zip code & then you can scroll down to FFLs in your area that are set up at Gun Broker.

Thousands of other people think so. Whether its "worth" it to you is something you'll have to decide for yourself.

If Kimber Customer Service had a better rep, I'd say "go for it".

But for less money you can have a Stainless Steel Colt,

Springfield, S&W, or Remington. Take your pick...

I never owned a Kimber and do not see my owning any in the future.

I purchased a Kimber custom II TLE RL in May and 2000 rounds later no issues what so ever. Accuracy is superb as well.
