    I take it your not a Kimber fan...I always liked them...not saying there the best in the world...Just always liked the small 45's they made......I guess a flood of small 9mm's are going to fill the market very soon...

    I like it. If its closer to $500 than $1000, I'll probably give it a serious look. Been looking at single stack subcomp 9mms. Rohrbaugh's a bit out of reach, but PM9 and PF9 are the strongest currently available options. Now add Ruger, Kimber, and Sig as potential candidates...if I can wait for them to arrive.

    Maybe I'll just get the Kel-Tec for now, revisit these guns once they've got a few months track record. But this Kimber does look awful tempting.

    I'll say this: She is a beauty!

    Now, its too bad Kimber doesn't share the same warranty policy that Kel-Tec does, or even come close for that matter. Its too bad its going to be (about) double the price of a new PF-9.

    In all honesty, it would have to be a really really good shooter for me to consider one of these over two PF-9's.

    Would I buy one if I had the extra cash just laying around? If its reliable, you can bet on it!

    I actually like Kimber and carry one daily. I would be more impressed if they built a Sig P238/Colt Mustang sized 9mm. I'd be on that like white on rice.

    Actually, the gun came from the factory with the scratch on it. Those photos were posted in order that they were taken (by me) right out of the box.

    A Solo Carry that was delivered to a Cabelas also had the same thing. Someone at the factory that was assembling them must not have known what they were doing.

    The slide stop / takedown pin doesn't even have to be inserted at an angle like a 1911 - there is no spring putting pressure against it like a 1911. Instead, you just line up the notch and insert it straight down into the frame.

    See this link: http://sigforum.com/eve/forums?a=tpc&s=674608412&f=430601935&m=4800004732&r=5470015732#5470015732

    Impact guns has the price on the Kimber Solo at $659.

    I still haven't seen a price on the the Sig P290

    and the best bang for the buck is probably going to be the Ruger LC9 (shown left).

    Check out the Springfield EMP in 9mm.
    Better gun IMHO and I am a big fan of Kimber.

    Nutnfancy's quite unhappy with the new [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R__qknnpsTI"]Sig Sauer P290 9mm[/ame].

    It still seems that a P238-sized (or even LCP-sized) pistol in 9mm is the holy grail of carry guns. The only real contenders are:

    Kahr PM9
    Kimber Solo
    Ruger LC9
    Sig P290
    Kel Tec PF9

    But none of them really succeed as takers of the crown, including the new Solo.

    If AMT can make a roughly P238 size gun in .45ACP, why can't someone else do it?
    A P238 in .45 would be awesome. I'd settle for four rounds in. gun like that.

    What I would like to see is a 9mm in the style of a Sig P232 or Walther PPK.

    I know its an old thread but I have to agree with this idea.
    If they can make a near LCP-sized 9mm, why can't they make a 9mm Walther PPK?
