I really liked the Kimber Custom II I just got in a trade but, it was just to long and heavy for me. I wanted a 1911 to carry. I tried carrying the Kimber for 1 day and it was a no go. I was at walmart trying to pay for my stuff, well the problem was the barrel of the Kimber was stuck in my back pocket and I couldn't get my wallet out. :embarassed: So I listed it and ended up trading for this Springfield Armory micro compact with 2 mags and $250 cash. He said he bought it new in 2002 and its been in the safe most of its life.. I took it out when I got home and shoot 100 rounds through it without the first hiccup.
