When you're practicing with it don't the crayons melt?

That Super Carry Pro might replace my Pro Crimson Trace model if a trade makes sense. It's a great CC gun and it's a Kimber!!
Which sights does yours have?

Don't know the brand (if not made by Kimber) but they are tritium night sights and they REALLY light up in the dark. I have a Pro Crimson also, the guns are very much alike. I haven't shot the Super yet, but I'm expecting it to be like the Crimson. I'll do a report once I get a chance to get to the range.

Here is a couple of shots of my best shooter. A Series 70 that I added a solid guide rod, a barrel comp that takes place of the barrel bushing, and Pachmayer grips with their matching mainspring housing. It is very accurate, and fun to shoot.

The sights on mine are the same as yours, "Meprolight", Tritium Night Sights. So jealous of your Super Carry Pro.

My Pro Crimson doesn't have night sights on it. I wish it did, I'd probably go with some Hogue grips and sell the lasers. I may cut it loose though, I've been wanting an all stainless 5 incher.
