    Kimber Solo Carry

    It looks like 2011 will be the year of the single-stack pocket 9's. We have Sig and Ruger throwing their hats in the ring.

    Now Kimber:

    I assume that will be a DAO pistol? I didn't see an external hammer...Interesting!

    I dont think any of these single stack 9s are for pockets. I carry a p3-at, and anything larger would be too large. Most will agree the keltec p11 9mm is too large for pocket. That kimber will be too larger and heavy. Might work in a coat pocket, but not jeans

    We're all in favor of reducing violent crime. It's just that pro-gunners have a method that is proven effective. Anti-gunners don't.

    Not bad looking, It does look a little large for a pocket weapon hopefully a black stainless version to come ?

    That depends, if this is more of a pocket pistol that is not DAO then you may want a safety. Frankly I would dig if this was SAO like 1911

    Even though the picture is a good indication, I look forward to seeing the actual specs. Naturally this has to come out right when I think I've decided on a single stack 9mm...

    Massad Ayoob has an article on safeties in the latest edition of "American Handgun" that might give you second thoughts on the value of a safety or atleast not so thuimbs down.

    Makes little difference to me either way.The only firearm I own with a true external safety is my CZ-82, but it's not my carry gun. If I were to carry anything "cocked & locked" I'd think I'd want one.

    Well back to the thread, the safety issue has been beat to death and for some of us folks it's not an issue. I do have to say that this Kimber looks nice, to bad it's not a Colt.

    Wanted the LC9 till I saw this. Can't wait for the test videos this looks as if it could be the most accurate in this market.
