"Why I Have The Best Fiancee In The World" - or - "My Engagement Kimber!"
Hey all -
Pretty much just needed to take a moment to brag here. I proposed to my girlfriend of almost four years right before this last Christmas, and she received a sizable rock in the process. Since that time, I'd half-joked a few times that when it came time for her to pick out a ring for me, I'd rather have an inexpensive ring and a less-inexpensive firearm to go with it then some crazily expensive piece of jewelery for myself.
On another note, really been wanting to get into a .45 for some time now, had been planning on maybe a Glock 36, but at the same time have been feeling like my collection was sorely lacking a 1911 of some variety.
Well, my half joke turned into a reality this evening, and the 1911 gap in my collection has been very sufficiently attended to, after my darling fiancee suggested we scoot on down to Sportsman's Warehouse tonight....... and we came home with one of these...!
Kimber Tactical Pro II, aluminum frame, Meprolight night sights, all sorts of bells and whistles. Figured if I was gonna do a 1911, (and my wonderful fiancee was gonna pay for it!!!) might as well do it right! Can't wait to get out and put my "400-500 break-in rounds" through it and start carrying this beast.
I just received a Crossbreed belt in the mail yesterday, and I'd placed an order for a UBG Canute for my G19 several weeks ago, emailed Nate today to ask that order be changed to the same holster for my Kimber instead so I won't have to wait another 6-7 weeks, and just in time as they promptly replied to inform me that could be done and they'd be starting on my order Sunday! Now just need to figure out a mag carrier (single? double? any input?), and order a few extra mags (Kimber? Wilson? any input?), and I'll be looking at a pretty dang sweet carry rig.
Anyway, thanks for enduring my bragging session, everybody, but I am one excited dancing banana right now! :danceban: And lots of love and thanks to my beautiful generous sweet fiancee. Thanks baby!
