    My Kimber 1911



    When this thread first went up I was drooling over all those gorgeous guns. And as of this afternoon, I finally was able to buy a 1911. I decided on a Kimber Pro Carry II in stainless. Sorry for the crummy pic quality. This was my first new handgun purchase and my first "nice" gun, with my Taurus PT 24/7 Pro used being my next most expensive. I went to the gun show today in Fort Worth and went up and down every isle, MANY times, picked up tons of 1911s and debated, agonized, scrutinzed and over-thought the entire process. I had initially overlooked the Kimbers on the table, thinking they where out of my price range and had been debating on a Springfield Armory Loaded Champion or a Colt Commander in SS with a 4.5 inch barrel. And then this one just jumped out and me and the second I saw it I knew I had to have it. I picked it up and it just felt excellent!

    I love it, love it, love it, and I can't wait to shoot it!

    Alex!

    All great looking too! I have to agree, there's just something sexy about a 1911!

    Good advice! The problem with polymer framed porn is there aren't tons of options. I polished the barrel......I put on grip tape......I changed sights......I got the gun back from Duracoat......etc etc! It's kind of like going to a strip club and they don't take their clothes off!

    My Behlert 1911

    Now that I finally got my camera out of my daughters car, (girls are slobs), I finally am able to share with you some pictures of a 1911 Mod 70 Gold Cup Austin Behlert converted for me many years ago (possibly the last year he still worked in NJ).

    This pistol has been thru hell and back and I stopped counting how many thousands of rounds have gone thru the same barrel.

    I use it as my primary carry gun and it also served me extremely well when I competed in early IPSC shoots with Austin's son and daughter.

    This is one gun I'll never part with.
