I've owned the Kimber for just about a week now, and I have shot it once. I gave it a real detailed cleaning, and I know how to clean firearms (I do it all the time at work and at home). I take the Kimber out of the case, and there's rust on the f*cking barrel!!!!!! WTF!!!!! I went online and did a search, and noticed that this is a common problem with Kimber. Google "Rust on Kimber" and check out the myriad of responses. I'm about two seconds away from taking the pistol back, getting my money back and purchasing something like a Springfield XD-45. At least, I know for a fact the XD line won't let me down!!!!!! WTF is wrong with Kimber making people pay 700 dollars or more for a 1911 that will rust in a week or less if you don't keep it in a super moisture free chamber, and only handle it with gloves???? A 1911 is supposed to be tough, and last forever. My RIA did better than this!!!!
