But does that ever really happen?
I went to the range yesterday with about 125 rounds of 9mm, to begin putting my new Kahr PM9 through it's paces. It was great: fired every time, never the first hint of any issue with the gun, and unfortunately it put a hole in the target exactly where it was aimed when the pin met the primer -- in other words, I have some work to do on handling a small handgun in my big Irish hands.
But then .... another very friendly gentleman, who was there shooting with his daughter (although it adds nothing to the story, she was a very attractive little blonde) got to watching me. He was shooting a few lanes down, and he noticed that every now and then I'd take a break from the Kahr 9 and shoot a few magazines through my SA GI.45 EMP -- I love that gun. So, we got to talking, and got along great -- he's retired Marine, I'm retired Air Force, and we just got along great.
And he asked me: "would you like to shoot a Kimber?" Well, gee, I don't know (trying to be coy and not showing how likely it is that I would jump all over that opportunity), I guess, yeah, I wouldn't mind shooting your perfect little Kimber.
Wow. What a nice handgun. First pull of the trigger, right in dead center. Subsequent 5 pulls, perfect. And it felt so .... NICE. So ..... guess I'm not finished with buying guns yet.
