    SheWhoMustBeObeyed (hereinafter known as SWMBO) wants the Kimber K6. She thought she wanted a S&W but the triggers weren't as good as the Kimber. I think I've rented 30 revolvers for her in the past two weeks. Arthritis and hand strength preclude her using a semi auto. She cannot manipulate the safety on a semi-auto, even the ones she can do the tap rack drill with. So, revolver it is.
    We'll be buying/ordering one on Saturday. I'll do what I can to get some pics and a range report. I've already been told that this is HERS! I might get the chance to fondle it once in a while.

    Edit: This will be consuming a the bigger part of what I had put back toward a DW V-Bob. So, somebody buy the Para Commander I have in the classifieds.

    I've heard a lot of great things about the K6. I'm glad she found something that works for her.

    I just looked at the Kimber offering on their web site.
    The revolvers look great.
    Are you getting night sights?

    GOOD FOR HER! And You. Nothing better than revolvers for PD for those that do not practice and drill often with semi autos. AND for those of us awakened from a sound sleep when a weapon is required.

    Good one. My Dad and I used to watch that show. I haven’t heard any of the Millennials reference that series.

    Absolutely. I'm trying to convince her to get the 3 inch barrel, but she likes the looks of the 2 incher. I guess she got used to short things after she married me.

    In this case, size does matter.

    I am very interested in pictures and range report. My life likes revolvers. When the K6 first came out, I read reviews and it looked interesting. Even though Kimber isn't a brand I want to own, it appeared they did a really good job with this revolver.

    There are pics in this sub-forum on another thread. I myself am no fan of Kimber. A friend sent one back 7 times before he felt it was reliable enough to sell. In this case, it looks like they may have hit the bullseye. Realistically, the same size as the SP-101 with 6 instead of 5. Maybe an ounce heavier? Rented one and it was solid, accurate, and felt good in the hand. The missus liked it, said she wanted it, end of story. I think it will turn out to be a good purchase.

    Sounds great! I bought my wife a S&W 66 3" as a gift a few years back, only to find out the front sight wasn't machined in the center of the barrel. It was probably a collector all these years and never shot. So, while I was excited to find one, it was a disappointing outcome. While S&W has a good reputation for revolvers, I've had my fair share of issues with them.

    I think Kimber put a lot of work into the design of the K6 - I too think they have a winner here.
