    I learned this the hard way as well. Once I learned how to adequately lubricate my Kimbers, they ran great! My wife NEVER had a issue with her Ultra Aegis II and my Ultra CDP II in 9mm runs like a top now that I know how to ensure it has enough lubrication. It likes to run wet.

    So buy the Kimber and turn around and get it fixed?

    If I were you, I'd get the DW as recommended by GlockVader, but that Springfield Loaded is pretty sexy too. Look at Diablo's DW beauty, though.
