    Question Anyone have a Kimber Pro Carry HD II?

    Well, I fought the dark side and won but...
    The 1911 bug bit my butt and I can't shake it! I gotta have one!

    I'm leaning very strongly toward a Kimber Pro Carry HD II in .45ACP.
    Does anyone have and experience or advise regarding them?

    Thanks in advance!

    New Kimber

    Well, disregard the advise... not that I was getting any!

    I decided to go with the Kimber Pro CDP II

    Niiiiiiiiiiice!

    I have both the Ultra CDP II and the Pro CDP II...the Pro was my first purchase. I tried to get the Ultra for my wife, but no one would swap...kidding, of course!
    I have the found the Ultra easier to conceal here in the Gunshine State.

    Congrats on the new gun. I wanted to offer advice, but my Kimber is the Custom Stainless Target model. I want a CDP II like there's no tomorrow.

    Nice choice with the CDP! I carry an Ultra CDP on day's I need "Ultra Concealment" Ha, Ha! Great little gun, but I found I needed a bit of customizing for my liking.

    Well this is my first 1911 but I don't think it'll be my last!
    I had 7 kimbers on the counter for about 1 1/2 hours! I almost wore them out looking at them!

    This one made a lot of sense for a carry gun. I would have chosen the smaller frame but this one fit my hand so well. My SIG won't even talk to me though!

    I'll try to get a range report before too long. A better picture too!

    Thanks guys!

    I own 2 of the Pro Carry HD II's......one in .45 the other in .38super.

    I like both a lot, the .45 I carry regularly. I did modify it a little, added ambi-safety (southpaw'd), forward slide serrations, mag funnel & nite-sites.

    The .38super is as good as the .45, well built, all stainless, commander length, easy to conceal.

    Much thanks!

    Initially, not having a clue about 1911's, it sounds like I stumbled on to a good one. That's a first for me! I think this will be my new primary carry weapon! I can't wait for a chance to put 'er on paper!

    Thanks for all the encouragement!

    Make sure you put at least 300 rds of target/practice ammo and at least 200 rds of your favorite carry ammo and/or find what ammo your Kimber likes before you put it in a holster. The break in and checking if everything is cool and reliable before carry.
