I did it! Yesterday I shopped around and ended up getting a Kimber Pro Carry II with night sights. I figure I can add stuff to it later and it will be more "customized". With the savings I bought several hundred rounds of range ammo and some DPX 230 grain hollowpoints. I'll be picking up a carry holster later, but I want to get a few hundred rounds throught it before I carry it. I brought it home and did a field strip and lubed it down, with no scratches! For now, I'm pretty happy with it. This is my first 1911 .45acp and it's all you guys' fault!!! This friday I'll get to the range for a full report with pics.
