    Something followed me home today....

    Found something at the gun show today here in Abilene that just followed me home.......

    Still trying to explain to my wife that I really don't know how these things happen.



    Kimber Tactical Pro II

    Tactical pistols are loaded with Custom Shop features that make them ideal for carry or defense as well as law enforcement use.

    Caliber: .45 ACP

    Features: Exclusive gray anodized aluminum frames dramatically reduce
    weight without compromising performance or durability.

    All Tactical pistols feature Meprolight Tritium 3-dot night sights, ambidextrous safety and premium aluminum trigger.

    Tactical pistols have 30 lines-per-inch checkering or the front strap and under the trigger guard with extended magazine well for enhanced grip and control.

    Specifications: Height (inches) 90 to barrel: 5.5
    Weight (ounces) with empty magazine: 28
    Length (inches): 7.7
    Magazine capacity: 7
    Magazine well
    Ambidextrous thumb safety
    Recoil spring (pounds): 22

    Frame: Material: Aluminum
    Finish: Gray anodized
    Width (inches): 1.28
    Frontstrap checkering (30 LPI)
    Checkering under trigger guard (30 LPI)

    Slide: Material: Steel
    Finish: Matte black oxide

    Barrel: Steel match grade
    Length (inches): 4
    Twist rate (left hand): 16

    Sights: Meprolight Tritium 3-dot night, fixed
    Radius (inches): 5.7

    Grips: Black and silver laminated, logo
    Trigger: Premium aluminum match grade
    Factory setting (approx. pounds): 4-5

    I kept telling myself I didn't need another Kimber, but this deal was a good one. Traded off a S&W 640 2 inch 357 and a Kel-Tec P3AT, then a small cash difference that made it a really good deal.

    Don't you just hate it when those evil guns follow you home. I keep trying to tell my wife that it's not my fault but...... Sounds like you have that problem too.
    Very nice pistol by the way!!!
    We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!

    That's a beauty... I have been looking for just such a beast. Mind if I ask what it cost to liberate it?
    The facts are indisputable. There is more data supporting the benefits of Conceal Carry than there is supporting global warming. If you choose ignorance, in light of all the evidence, in order to bolster your irrational fear of guns, you are a greater threat to society than any gun owner.
