Cognizant of the fact that my last few days of leisure come to a screeching halt in the morning when I once again must get out there and do my part to speed up our sluggish economy I figured it was time to put the new Kimber through it's paces. With the weather more than cooperating I drove the truck out into the pasture and prepared to do battle with Diet Pepsi bottles, clumps of mud along the pond bank and any crawling poisonous reptiles that were unfortunate enough to make their presence known. (I also take the truck so I can leap into the bed like a superhero in case one of those nasty creatures gets too close... 50 feet is too close.) Since the hay field is knee high and ready for it's first cutting I was forced to deploy my huge tarp to catch my spent brass but it worked pretty well so there were no worries. I started out with 200 grain SWC over 3.9 Clays. Just like the few rounds I fired before I left on this trip they all fed flawlessly. Two Pepsi bottles fell to the onslaught of flying wheel weights and just like magic large mud clods were transformed into small mud clods. Couldn't get more than 20 yards away from the opposite bank and still see because of the tall grass but accuracy was certainly good enough to keep 'em in the 24 ounce bottles. Tried several magazines as fast as my arthritic fingers could pull the trigger... again, no malfunctions of any kind. The sound of the firing alerted my buddy's neighbor who owns the ranch next door that something neat was going on. The sight of his ATV bounding across the pasture was a sign that I had better save him some ammo. He had come over to the house the other night to BS and have a glass of amber colored adult beverage. He asked if I'd picked up any new guns lately so I dug it out and let him pop off a few rounds into the grass. It was pitch dark and he had fun playing with the laser sight but now wanted to shoot it in the daylight. We finished off a hundred of the SWC's then switched to the 225 grain LRN over Power Pistol. Great fun... great fun! Recoil was obviously more than the 200 grainers but the little 3 inch barrel handled them without a problem. Again, we had no malfunctions of any kind in either slow fire or with him pulling the trigger faster than I am able to do. I had ten Remington 185 grain JHP's in the back of the truck and decided to run them through just for the heck of it. (I hate shooting factory stuff into the dirt but wanted to see if there'd be any functioning problems.) If there's something this little gun doesn't like I haven't found it yet. We went through a total of 210 rounds, (counting the few I let him shoot the first night) and had no failures of any kind. Looking forward to getting home and loading a few hundred rounds of both grainers so I can take it to the range for a real workout. Have a couple thousand rounds of 185 grain XTP's so I may load up a hundred or so of those just for grins and giggles. Jack Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
