    Was at Fin, Feathers, and Fur picking up my ProCarry2 today and was waiting at the counter for my paperwork to be run, and noticed they had a SCP2 so I got a chance to play with it for a few minutes. Felt REALLY good in hand. Nice and light. Fit and finish seemed really nice. Crisp trigger. The scaling(?) was really grippy too. I was impressed. Seemed like a nice pistola for sure. Asking price was $1,299.

    It is a series 70. It is a decent gun, if you can get past the Ed Brown wannabe fish scales that IMO are very tacky. Almost looked like a pimp gun.

    I think they're pretty cool and I really like the fact they are series I but that is a lot of money for a Kimber.

    After shooting Quack's KobraCarry a few days ago that was my first thought holding it......poor man's wanna-be KC. Although, I do like it better than the Raptor, JMHO. $1,300 is right in the CBOB range, which I would take every day and twice on Sunday over the SuperCarry.

    I like them alot, but wish they were all stainless or at least a stainless finished frame. I'm not a huge bi-tone fan. And that gun, with all it's neat features, needs to be offered in an all stainless finish.

    I was impressed as well when I handled one last week.

    That price looks nice, compared to some others I've seen.

    Aw, dammit. I have been drooling over the Super Carry Pro since I saw the first pics. I have actually driven to FFF from Cincinnati once before to pick up a pistol from a Gunbroker auction, so it would not be out of the realm of possibility for me to head to Ashland for this one. Problem is, I got no $$$ to spend! For those who recommend other pistols for the $1200, my deal is that 1, I am a lefty so having an ambi safety already installed is a plus. 2, I actually really like the two tone finish, I can remember when they first became popular. 3, the bobbed grip is a plus, and I have seen nothing in the $1200 range that has the combination of 1,2,and 3. I gotta get some extra cash, for the gun and for the gas to drive to Ashland! Crap, even more for the holsters I need! @#%^^&#@#$

    Oh, and I forgot #4, the aluminum frame makes this a + for me as a daily carry gun, possibly on and off duty.
