Upgraded to a Kimber .45

Have had my CHL for a couple years now and been carrying a 9mm Beretta 92 FS. Knockdown power has always been a concern and have been looking for a .45 for some time now. Went to Pioneer Guns in Bedford and almost got a Springfield 1911 Operator for $900 but found this Kimber 1911 Warrior for $100 more (retails around $1400) . . . easy decision and don't regret it a bit! I put 200 rounds through it last week and love this thing! So accurate its not even funny and the trigger pull is nothing . . . caught me off guard how quickly the round squeezed off.

I have a couple of Kimbers and am always amazed at the way they shoot. They are impressive guns, and espectially if you were used to shooting a 92FS!

If it is a steel gun, convert it to 45 Super.

Haha, yeah it took me a couple times to get the hang of it - the spring shoots out if you aren't careful!
