    CrUd...it happened again...honest it followed me.

    Well ya'al know the story. It happens. Friend wanted her first CCW and wanted a Kahr TP-9 I had. So like a good friend (who had to many 9s and not enough 1911s) I sold her my Kahr on her b'day and this thing just kinda sorta followed me out the door of a store (actually the stupid rule at Cabela's is they carried it out empty and gave it to me outside the store, knowing full well that as an LEO I was already packing).

    Oh well, now I have a CCO style of 1911 that I been wanting and after a run to the range, several hundred rounds and quick qualifer this used baby has found a home on my right hip. Just wish the govt would let me carry it on duty, then all would be well.

    Ok to keep you picture hounds off my back side I even took ya'al a picture with several new toys. New pistol, new knife and new jacket...the flashlight has been a companion for about four years now.

    Just a little more comforting on brain knowing that its a 45 instead of a 9 delievering my stop what your doing right this second message.

    Ohh the other thing pictured followed me home yesterday too. Gee I just dont know what to do with these things that keep following me. Talked to the local officers and for some reason they wouldnt issue me a restraining order against either of the stalkers.

    Item #2 is why I need item #1. Good news is, item #2 never has followed me.

    Nice Kimber! A classic 1911 is always a welcome addition.

    After I had the front sight put back in....it was sold to me loose and the range gunny put it back on for me...it held tight groups. My first set of five with CCI Blazer went into a 2" black X ring at seven yards. After that I ran some handloads a friend makes up for target hole punching and was rewarded with a one hole 3/4" group again at twenty-one feet. Then with Speer 230gr Gold Dots it held a 1.5" group. The qual target was from 3' to 25 yards and the grouping was about the size of a pie plate. So far so good. It will be off soon for a new front painted night sight from TJ's Custom Gun Works (something about a orange blade front night site for my old eyes) and eventually a new Wilson safety and slide release, ERGO grip in OD Green and Wolff XD spring for Kimber 4" guns. Trigger is crisp and very smooth so no need to fix that. Brownells is mailing me out some Wilson mags tomorrow to suplement the ones I already have on hand. Looks like I have found my off duty carry gun.

    Congrats on the Kimber 1911. Nice ink. What's the symbolism behind it?

    Odd question.

    Is that sword supposed to be Curtana? Seems like the tip is cut off but I cant tell for sure from the picture.

    Congrats on the new toy/art. But remember, If your 1911 says Kimber, Get out of the house! Guns are not supposed to talk!
    Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.

    The dragon is my birth sign under the Japanese calander, my high school mascot (in Japan) and the mascot of several of my military units. Care was taken to make the dragon look aged kinda like me...long in the tooth. The wings were added to represent the American eagle. Kinda a wierd mixture of my being an American raised and later stationed in Japan.

    The sword and shield are those of a Roman Legion with the gladius sword (ink was to small for all the detail) and a shield representing an old soldier of the Christian legions. The dings and pings are from past conflicts yet still serving.

    The rock represents my Savior, Jesus. The bible tells us to stand upon the rock of our salvation. I stand upon the rock and on the rock are the initials of my three children "RJR" as I place them on my "rock" for His protection.

    The eyes are blue, like mine. It took about three years before I was comfortable with a final design, and Mike did a great job of translating what I wanted, down to many details onto my skin.

    Thanks btw for asking.
