    Kimber 1911's

    Ok guys I think I know what you mean when you say they multiply like rabbits. I have an XD.40 4". I said to myself this would be the one gun I would own and I would use it for range, house and carry when I can.

    I took the NRA basic pistol safety class, a great refressher being prior military but about 10+ years out of the game. The instructor gave my a discout coupon for NRA membership which I took advantage of.

    My first edition of America's 1st freedom came the other day and on the back cover is and add for the Kimber carry 1911's. Everytime I open my desk drawer at work I can't help but stare, oogle, drool over those sidearms. I am loosing the battle and I fear that I may have a 1911 soon.

    What do you get when .45acp and .40s&w get together? Please don't tell me .223 AR!

    Thanks
    Mike

    It depends whose genes dominate. If its the .45, you get a .308 or 30/06. If its the .40, the .223.

    Kimber makes good carry guns

    I'm always impressed with how many variations on the 1911 theme Kimber can invent. Sometimes it falls flat, like the external extractor that didn't work well. But in general the Kimber guns perform.

    I like the idea of aluminum frames and barrels shorter than 5 inches for a carry 1911. I have one, a CDP Pro, and it is one of my favorites:

    I'm very happy with how my Kimber carries. If I can get it feeding perfect, then I'm in business.

    Question

    POGO 2

    If you don't mind asking are they 7-or 8 rounder Wilsons?
    My guess is they actually 7 rounders

    (Sorry for the off topic question)

    Just giving ya trouble Mr. White, I coundn't resist!

    The Eclipse is a nice piece with an interisting finish to them. You should be happy to know I will have a SF Loaded chambered in 9mm by the end of the year, probably my Christmas present to myself.

    The Wilson mag shown in the gun is an 8 rounder.
