Kimber has spent a lot of engineering on the cycle timing of their 3" guns. SA makes a good one too, but I like the Schwartz safety firing pin block on the Kimbers. The rosewood grips are good enough untill you put CT's on it. The slightly reduced velocity of the short bbl softens the recoil of the lightweight and makes it very controllable. Good choice. I recommend the heavier Barnes copper bullet, but Cor-Bon DPX should be the optimum for this platform. Enjoy, and don't pay any mind to the MIM ranters. There is nothing else on the market for the $$ that equals the Ultra CDP.
