Saving for a new carry .45
Hello everyone, forgive me if my first is a bit long-winded, but I'm searching for advice. I am currently saving for a new carry gun, and I would very much like to get a 1911-style .45, and the one I have my eye on specifically is the Kimber Ultra Carry II in stainless steel, 3" barrell. I've read some mixed reviews on the differences in safety mechanisms between first and second generation Kimbers, from what I read first gen Kimbers use Colt series 70 mechanisms and second gens use series 80. Is there one that is better than the other from a carry standpoint? I'd greatly appreciate any feedback and info that could guide me in my purchase.
