    I bought my wife a Kimber Crimson Custom Carry II a few months ago and this gun has been ejecting empties ,of all types of ammo, that strike us both in the face. Has anyone had this happen with this pistol? What could be the issue and fix. We have both developed a flinch when we shoot this pistol. Help please.

    The brass is hitting you in the face, probably need to send it in and have the extractor tuned

    If you don't know how to adjust your extractor, you can have your local gunsmith do it.
    Sometimes all it takes is a little stoning, and a tweak here or there.

    This is not something you need to send the gun back for.
