I'm somewhat new to the forums and I wanted to share my rig with all of you. I finally got my plastic about a week ago after a 160 day wait here in Texas. I got the run around from the DPS and the standard Hurricane Ike excuse letter. Finally, I got ahold of my state representative and he had them ship my license over-night UPS as soon as it was completed.
I picked up this Kimber CDP-II Compact about 10 days ago after waiting on it on special order for a month. I've been really pleased with it so far. I was kind of fearful based on what some have reported about Kimber's quality control, but my experience thus far has been quite flawless. I've put about 500 rounds through it all ready and I have yet to experience a single hiccup.
Truthfully, I was expecting a few FTE's or FTF's, but even hollow-points have fed without a single mishap. I basically threw away the stock Kimber mag and have not shot with anything but Wilson Combat mags so that may explain my good fortune.
Obviously, I changed the grips. I hope I don't get flamed for them. I just have a personal preference for something with a bit of flash. I think it looks tasteful compared to the 3 toned look with the stock wooden grips (maple-ish color).
I've been carrying in a Galco IWB rig that I have been really pleased with. The fit is spot on and I can really conceal this relatively large pistol with ease. The compact is an officer's gripped 1911 with the 4" barrel that you see on the Pro model.
Thanks for reading and I look forward to your comments!
