    Kimber Custom TLE II added to my tool bag...

    Hello all.

    I disappeared for a while. Was laid off for a few months. Got out of the habit of posting on the site and generally getting my life straightened out again.

    I've caught the 1911 bug and purchased my first yesterday. Not ready to retire my bhp just yet but if the Kimber eats a few hundred rounds I can see it becoming my daily carry.

    hee hee. I was hoping for that. :)

    I'll post pictures of the pretty little thing this week and hopefully some paper with holes in it if I can get out and shoot it this weekend.

    Great choice in weapon! About the same configuration as my Desert Warrior, which is my primary home defense handgun. Let us know how the first trip to the range works out!

    I'm in love!

    I shot the little beasty for the first time today at my outdoor range. This was our first date and I wanted to get comfortable with her without any long-term expectations.

    I tore her down, cleaned her, lube her up and ran 100 wwb 230gr through her without a single hiccup.

    It feels so much like my bhp (just with a bit more jump) that it was a natural comfort zone from about 10 rounds on. I didn't shoot any targets this time - just the cardboard from the wwb and I have to say that I am pleasantly surprized with holes appearing where I wanted them. I pulled some anticipating the recoil and I'm not a marksman shot by any stretch of the imagination but from 10 yards I can tear out the circle emblem on the little white ammo box.

    I'll keep it.

    Oh, yeah and here she is fresh after her bath:

    The belt leaves something to be desired but for now here we go.
