After picking up the Kimber i have the 1911 bug now and want another.
The next one will be at least a 4" if not a 4.25" barrel, and then another, and another,,,,,
Theres just something about the 1911's, but they aren't for everyone.
I had to do a lot of research and reading before I got comfortable with kocked and locked (sad I have to spell it that way
), but I feel its safer than other options out there.
Stu, the 45 doesn't kick as bad as you would think, and the longer the barrel you get, the less recoil, my ultra kicks for a 3" barreled 45, but it wasn't near as bad as I thought it was gonna be, although I need to get out and do some one hand shooting to see how it acts with my small hands,,,,
