    In Praise Of Kimber

    I've been very pleased with my Kimber. Several thousand rounds shot without any issues... even from the original magazines which have been 100% reliable.

    I don't know if I'm that lucky but with all the "Kimber bashing" lately I was surprised by this article:

    Kimber Pro Carry

    Seems they may not be as bad as some think.

    OK, now I'll duck

    I'm glad to hear it! Mine should be here in a week. I hope some of your good luck rubs off on me!

    Thumbs up Terrible problem...

    My Kimber has a terrible extractor problem. You see, it just keeps shucking brass and chambering cartridges. It won't stop, and it's making me poor.

    P.S. And it's no fun at the range because it just always hits what I am aiming at. I never even get a chance to practice remedial action drills... Terrible

    Keep in mind that the gun in that article is an older pre-series II.

    I have no problem with anyone who likes their Kimber, I am over joyed that your Kimber has no issues.

    It's like I've said before, a Kimber that runs, runs well and is a great gun. A Kimber that doesn't run will make you want to slit your wrists.

    Isn't this true of any defensive handgun?

    My Ultra Carry runs great, glad yours runs well, too...
