    That is also why there are two guys on here that own over 50 1911's each, and they both carry a Kimber daily... Nuff said...

    That's only because Brian doesn't want to have to deal with the heartbreak of having a $5,000-7,000 pistola taken into evidence and being handled by who knows how many people, banging around a property room, and possibly never to return to his carpet. :supergrin:

    I just got an Eclipse Pro from Buds for $1038. Most accurate gun I own but I had to send it back to Kimber for what I think is extractor problems. It seems to be a common problem with Kimber theese days. It is a good looking gun though, but if Im ever going to carry it it better come back 100% or its down the road.

    I've only owned 3 1911's and I prefer the Kimber.
    The other two were Colts, though.
    It's very accurate and reliable over 2K so far, what should I hate about it?
