    New Carry gun! (thanks for the fix on my Kimber guys!)

    After some hard thinking on that slide lock problem with my Kimber Ultra CarryII I decided that it was going to take a lot of shooting before I trusted it completly. Sooo... I headed for my favorite gunstore and purchased a S&W Airweight 642-2, 38 spl, +P. I also got a speedloader (just in case) I took it to the range yesterday, pulled the trigger and it went BANG! No muss, no fuss, just BANG! I figure that that is important in a carry gun I haven't given up on the Kimber but...............!!

    Gotta love those snubbies. Between the .45 and .38spl I'd say you're about ready for anything.

    Like Jack says you got it covered....the 45 Kimber is a great little gun, as well as the 642 for being a good BUG or primary carry gun. Hope you work out the bugs in the Kimber.. don't give up on it.
