Default My first time with my Kimber

I don't know what info I should post here, but this is the first seven rounds I ever shot out of my Kimber Custom II 5". The two fliers were completely my fault and the last five were pretty good. The range was 15 yards and I am ashamed to say the ammo was Wolf FMJ.

The gun fed flawlessly with the factory mag. It is true what they say about 1911's, I have no desire to own anything else. My Glock groups about 2" at 15 yards with great ammo and I used to think it was accurate.

Awesome! That's a beautiful picture

Thank you for including your gun in the picture!!

RANT:
it seems like a lot of range reports I've read don't have pictures of their gun with the targets they just shot?!?! I mean the targets are cool and all and they show how close together you got your bullets as they passed through the paper but sometimes you need to add a little eye candy ^_^
It's like how they have car models you know? I mean... we are all really interested in the car and all the little gadgets and upgrades it has and how cool it looks, but the model directs our attention to certain aspects of the of the car and also keeps us entertained while some guy talks his yarn about how many speakers he has or how much horse power is under the hood...
Iono maybe it's just meeee.... my $0.01

It's like bragging about a nice car and then posting pictures of the tire streaks on the pavement.

Default Ahhh...Kimber...Baby...

A Kimber is like a Hot Blonde who:

Loves your faults...
Forgives your tresspasses...
And always goes where you want her too...

Ahhh...Kimber...Baby...

Here's Mine.

This is a costly lesson for you in that no other handgun will ever feel "right" to you again. It's a damn sickness I tell you...
