Default New Kimber

Can't believe it, but I bought my first Kimber. It's a lightly used Stainless Target 9mm. I've got to say, at $850 it seems like a good buy. The fit is extremely tight and it operates smooth as silk. The trigger is a bit heavy for my taste, but I'll take care of that. Looking forward to a range session now.

Love the grips, real shexy...

Are they some of yours or did they come with the gun?

Gratz on the new shootin' iron!

That's a beauty and a good deal as well.

I'm loving those grips. I want a set for my Kimber. The gun is pretty nice too.

Congrats.... Beautiful gun/grips. You got a good deal on that. Got mine a few wks ago, No time to really break it in yet... but i love the weight of it. Tames the .45 recoil down to about the same as my P95 9MM.
