THAT's the attitude!! Take that sumbeeyotch out and have fun with it. My carry gun is rusted in a couple places because the damned thing is swapping sweat with Big Jim & The Twins pretty much any time I'd dressed. If I ever have to use it for a photo shoot, something has gone terribly wrong.

Kimbers are good, no doubt about it. But I definitely wouldn't go as far as to say they're the best.

i only have one gun i care about love marks on. its my winchester super express in .458 win mag. its got a deep blued finish. im super careful with that rifle. all my other weapons so far are parkerized or have some sort of tough finish and are meant for rough use. they all have marks of use and they all look like they have been well loved and used.

Default cherry popper for sure

took my sa ultra compact to local gunsmith to have ambi saftey installed, he had my gun for 14 weeks, said he had to have special tool to put back spring in, and it would not take the ambi saftey. 6 weeks later still no gun, told me he took it to another gunsmith at well known retailer. 3 more weeks went by no gun, finaly i said if it cant be fixed bring it home i would give it a good burial at home, 2 weeks later got my gun in my hands almost cried it had punch marks and grooves all around the saftey an slide release. to make a long story short. picked up the proper ambi saftey at gun show installed myself no problems no special tools no new ugly marks. be carefull as to who works on your stuff. this guy had to be high an blind to do what he did
