    I have 8 revolvers, 44s, 480, 460's just haven't had a 1911 since 1970's. So, I was talking to my guy at the gun shop I buy from and told him I'd like to get a Pro Crimson Carry II; can you get me one? He said it would take 6 months but if I wanted a Pro Carry II and ordered my own crimson trace grips; he could have me the gun in a couple weeks. This guy has always treated me right, good prices too. Is he being straight up? So I'm getting my first 1911 after all these years. What Kimber do you all suggest?

    I have never owned a Kimber but wouldn't mind owning one. Not for $1200.00though. For that money I'd be looking at S&W, Colt, or Taurus and have some money left over for ammo.

    Stainless Smith & Wesson is the only way to go.

    I have a Kimber Classic, 6000 + rounds and so far, so good.
    The choice, (IMHO) should be made on what your MOST comfortable with and good at. If you know someone with a 1911, try those, unless you already have experience, in which case, what do I know.
    I like my Kimber a lot, and would bet my life on it (and I do).
