    Hello from Maine

    Just wanted to say hi and introduce myself.

    I work for the Forest Service as a programmer on simulation models that help management determine the best way to care for the forests.

    I have been around guns all my life and started shooting when I was very young. Recently got back into guns and hunting.

    I recently purchased a kimber pro cdp II and just got my CCW license.

    Thinking of getting some training but haven't decided where.
    There is a place called tactical response that will be here in July. Maasad Ayoob's school is only 2 hours away. Really would like to go to Gunsite, but the cost is quite high.

    My current gun collection:
    Kimber pro CDP II .45
    S&W 22
    Walther PPK 22
    22 rifle
    .410 shotgun with custom stock made by my father.
    Marlin 336 XLR .30-30
    Remington Model 700 .270

    Live in Maine grew up in Montana where I hope to get back to someday as
    that is where my family resides.

    Wonder if you are anywhere near Kittery Trading post - if so watch out for Bob - Class3NH - he'll have your wallet in exchange for guns

    Welcome from Virginia. I'm a fellow Pro CDP II owner. It makes a great carry gun. Just gotta break it in. Wolf makes a after market spring (XP) that is specifically designed for the Kimber Pro. I replaced my factory spring and use Kimber's SS magazines for maximum performance. The factory mags have a tendency to put little dings just below the feed ramp. Many swear by the Wilson mags. I don't like the added 1/4" to the grip.
