When I got my first 1911 a year ago, I was told it was a disease and I would not be able to control it. Well, I just got my 3rd one a few days ago. Kimber Pro Carry Stainless in 9mm. I hope that 9mm is not blasphemy here. I wanted a 9 so I could afford to do more shooting. After picking it up I got to thinking about how many .45acp boxes I could buy for the price of the gun. Then I remembered: I had the disease. Well, the first shot out of that gun was expensive, but it got a lot cheaper after that. :lol: Have only had the time to run 50 rounds of range ammo and 25 rounds of SD ammo through it so far. Flawless operation so far. The grips are Leopardwood, a pair I already had from Sarge at The Finer Grain.
