i have nothing personal against Kimber or their pistols. it does seem some do have some problems though. in all fairness, any mass produced item can have some that are less than stellar. Kimber makes some very good looking pistols, no doubt, and they must be selling enough of them to afford the nice glossy full page ads that are in the gun rags. but at the price they sell for, and with only a one year warranty, i would never buy one new. i might buy a used one and take my chances if the price was right.
but between the Kimber or a Sig, NIB, i would have to choose the Sig, unless i got some really smoking deal on the Kimber to justify buying it.
