New Pistol!

Postby Rajun cajun » Sat Jul 23, 2005 9:02 pm

Went to a pawn and gun shop that I placed a LOT of product into last fall on consignment to collect.

Well they have had some hard times so they told me.......well I have had some also!

After much negotiation............I walke dout with a brand Kimber 45 ACP in satin stainless, match trigger, rubber grips, tactical belt holster, extra clip, and a box of rounds for it............and the final cost out of my pocket?

$150.00

Not bad for about $899.00 worth of sweet shooting handgun!

Well th eguy owed me money from consignment stocking and sales.........I just got what he owed me in the Kimber, and $150.00 from my wallet to boot.

Not gonna get rid of thie one! Shoots like a dream..........bench rested on my truck hood yesterday and hit a stump 50 yards away on the second shot.

Close range accuracy shooting is off a little though............hit a water moccasin in the road only twice out of 4 shots.........but he was crawling also!

Rajun, I used to shoot 1911's in IPSC competitions. You might want to see about getting a trigger job on your new Kimber. They come with about a 5 to 6 lb trigger. The 1911 that I carry on my has about a 3 1/2 or 4 lb trigger. It will make all the diff in the world if you are having some problems hitting close with it. Most of the time it is the opposite. You will do fine up close, but stretch it out to 25-50 yards, and a right handed shooter will start hitting low and left, bc you are pulling the trigger wrong. A trigger job will help that. Happy shooting.

I liike the Kimber's ballance and action, recoil is minimal, shame on anyone that makes me have to drop a hammer!


I just cant get ove rthe tight tolerances............most old service 1911'a wont hit the broadside of a barn at 40 yards...........this one is super acurate!

PLan on installing a lazer.when I remember who I loaned mine out to!

Congratulations on your new pistol Rajun. I say that with just a touch of envy. Our Government decided, after a lunatic shot a bunch of schoolkids, that all pistol owners should pay, so they banned handguns (1997). The police took them all in. They could, because all were registered. Perhaps one could view that as a bit of a warning when you hear the wooly minded liberal thinkers suggest that there is no harm in just registering your weapons.

When the Germans invaded the Chanel Islands in 1940, they just went to the police station, looked up the registration files and hey presto, all the guns that might have been used for resistance were gone.

Sorry, I'm getting wound up again.

I do miss my pistols though.
