For starters, due to the fact that she was having problems with the trigger pull, my SO sold her PT-111 Mill Pro yesterday.
Today we went to find her a new pistol. She really likes my Kahr CW-9 but I suggested that she look around before she settles on getting one. Soooo....we are at Cheaper than (some VERY High dollar) Dirt. They didnt have much to look at that she was interested in. That is until she spotted the Kimbers. Oh boy, here we go...
[On a side note....those that know me know I shoot/carry a 5" Kimber that she has shot many times and Loves.]
The first one she picks up is the Ultra CDP. Well..........she liked it.
The second one she picked up was the Compact CDP. Thats when I realized that our budget was in trouble. The look in her eyes was like she had just picked up new puppy......Oh she did, and this one has a VERY loud bark. You should have seen the sadness in her eyes when she looked at the price tag. It was as tho she had lost a family member. I HAD to tell her that if that was what she wanted, we would get it. We will have to put it on lay-way but we will get it.
I couldnt say no. In the last year and a half I bought 5 pistols [1 was for her (have sold 2)],several holsters, 4 shot guns (have sold 2), 2 dillon presses and everything needed for loading, joined IDPA and Cross Timbers. She has allowed and supported this so I wont say no.
Ya wanna know what the worst part about it is? I really like this pistol too. Its a shame we cant afford 2 of them. My next big purchase will be an AR.
For the ones unfamiliar with this pistol......it is the light weight, 4" slide on a Compact frame 45acp.
