So Here is my delimma
I got a great christmas bonus and want to put 1/2 into a gun so I won't just fritter it away and wonder where it went.
My local shop has a Kimber Crimson carry in stock in both the pro and ultra size. These are beautiful firearms to my eyes. I really like the crimson trace laser grips. If I buy the Kimber it would need a new holster and new sights(TFO's I think).I also have no ammo on hand. The 45 is way more expensive to shoot than my other guns.
I already have two XD9sc's and a boatload of 9mm ammo.
I found a New XD9 Service with 4(yes 4) 16 round magazines for $429 including sales tax.
If i buy the XD I would have enough money to trick out my XDsc with tru-glo TFO's, Crimson trace laser grips and a cross breed supertuck. I could also add the crimson trace laser to my daily carry (an LCP) and still spend about two hundred less than the Kimber set up.
Just writing this down shows me that the XD is probably the smart move(kinda like deciding to marry the ugly girl who'll be a great wife) but the Kimber still appeals to my baser instincts (Hot girl, nothing but trouble, maybe unreliable, and will definatly cost more to keep running)
So what are your thoughts?
