I'm caught between two choices here. I'm looking at purchasing 1911 style weapon for carry. I do not want the compact version and sticking with at least a 4" barrel. I've decided between a STI Ranger II or a Kimber Stainless Pro Carry II HD. They are both comparable in cost, and made in the USA(is Kimber?). I haven't any experience with either brand. My concern is reliability, and customer service. I'm going to post on both manufacturer pages and hopefully come up with enough feedback to make a decision.
