Default Ok, I finally did it

I finally picked up a 1911. I have been wanting one for quite some time. Well I have had a Kimber 1911 22LR for almost 8 years, but not a true 1911 45ACP

I wasn't sure what one to get, but settled on a Kimber. I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet, will be this coming weekend.

Here is a couple of quick iPhone pictures.



Placed it over a Brownells 1911 catalog

Very nice choice. I think you are going to regret this day however. It's all downhill from here.

I echo JD.

I think you will find that the phrase, "I only have one 1911", is short lived.

Not to worry though, it’s a socially acceptable obsession.

This addiction only works if you actually shoot the 1911. Is it dirty yet??

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!

Great choice. I just bought that same gun. Here's my review: http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f66/45-acp-kimber-stainless-tle-ii-range-report-39700/

BTW, did you know that if you post that you bought a new 1911 your REQUIRED to post a range report!
Everyone here that has caught 1911itis is addicted to buying them, shooting them, and reading about them.



Make sure to put a link here, please.
