    2001SportTJ 1911 Totin' Redneck!

    Sep 17, 2011
    Hey everybody. I am a new 1911 owner as of today! I picked up a Kimber tle ii this morning. Although I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet I have to say that I am very impressed. The trigger is MUCH lighter and more crisp than my current EDC G19 and my brothers G26 that has a fulcrum trigger. The checkering on the front strap makes it feel like the gun is welded to my hand. It is much more thin than my Glock, which I was surprised by. Not to mention a 1911 is probably the best looking gun out there. I have been a fan of 1911's for a while but had just never got one. After today I am kicking myself for waiting this long to get one.:frusty:

    Anyways, just wanted to say hello and introduce myself before I bombard you all with questions. :grin:

    Here's a few pictures of the new 1911.(sorry about the poor quality, I took them on my iphone)



    My Glock had to sneak in a picture too.
