Well, first with the disclaimer...my Kimber Super carry pro .45 is not all stock.

I wanted a full stainless gun for carry, as I carry on my waist band in the small of my back.

As delivered Kimber's are NOT 100% stainless steel as advertised, the pin set is still blued steel, the hammer is A2 tool steel, the slide release/catch, mag release and mainspring housing are powdered metal.
So I changed out all of these with Wilson Combat stainless steel items.

With that being said, the gun shoots well, carries well, and does not exhibit any corrosion issues...sooooo take that as you will.

All in all, much better than my blued steel Colt Combat Commander that I carried for 30 years, and needing to clean it at least weekly during the warm temps.

And while on the gun subject, the readily available house gun is a Rem. 870 Marine Magnum 12 ga., no corrosion there either :}

Mark

Go after the bank on that, get an attorney if needed. They are liable

Daily carry is a Sig P320 carry, deep carry is a Sig P290RS. NH has Constitutional carry as well, but I still opt for the license to carry. This allows you the ability to carry in school zones if needed and I bid a lot of commercial work in and around school zones.

Well be careful. I'm personally very much a wheel gun guy for carry. I've never had a revolver stovepipe, fail to feed, fail to eject etc but had plenty of factory loads do that in an auto loader, but never one of my handloads.

I just had a negligent discharge in my kitchen the other night. Must have gotten complacent leaving the range. My M&P 9mm had a round hang up in the chamber when I cleared it leaving the range the other day, and my mind was already out the door and missed it. Ended up shooting a pile of dishes and my kitchen counter with a 135gr 9mm load at point blank range. Scared the crop outta me.

A negligent discharge can happen to about anyone, had a friend kill his neighbors refrigerator while inspecting his new purchase.

I was a couple of blinds down from a bad opening day experience goose hunting a long time ago. Young man shot and killed his dad while loading his gun.

I was at friends house a few years ago, he came real close to shooting a customer at his gun store. 2" higher and willie would have taken a direct hit.

He had just acquired MAC 10 open bolt and wasn't familiar with them, that gun would burn through bullets like nothing I've ever seen in real life.

All I can say is that for all the heat Mr. Monson purportedly packs in the front of his trousers, any man who makes his living selling "limited slip" isn't going to be getting much action.

South Florida wack jobs caused me to get my concealed carry. Daily carry is a s&w body guard, home gun glock 23. The original owner of my car was a doctor from South Carolina and there was a holster mount under the glove box. It was meant to be!

Good point and pet topic of mine.
Yep, it's inevitable: if you shoot enough, you WILL have a round go off from a firearm that you are holding! Inevitable.
Oh yah yah, I've heard dozens of guys say that it NEVER did and NEVER will happen to them -- but that's just empty talk.

Have seen 3 people KILLED by negligent discharge of a firearm, and the trigger pullers were skilled shooters.

There was a time when I would fire over a thousand rounds a day from up to 4 different pows ( CAR15 with XM203, AK, SKS, M60, M79, Uzi, Swedish K, M-1, M-1 carbine, M-14, Springifelds, FN's, MP38, assorted pistols -- we had an exotic and active amory). I always felt that I was "at one" with a weapon, and that I was safe.

THEN it happened while showing an HSc to a friend. Luckily, I was always super-conscious to never point a weapon at anyone, even unloaded, bolt open, no mag, etc. -- so the round just went thru the screen door. Again, lucky that no one was passing outside.

Yep, scared the "crop" out of me. In fact, immobilized me for a second -- stunned.

I tell my kids that if anyone (especially at a party, with alcohol) is showing off their weapon, GET OUT OF THE ROOM and far away. Don't even try to convince the guy to put it away!
Do not be the unwitting victim of an unintentional discharge. Those unwitting bullets are like magnets. In fact, they find their mark better than well-aimed and intentional shots. (Anyone with snub nose experience knows this.)

Yes, there are a few individuals who are insensitive and regard themselves as the ultimate authorities on everything. We all know who they are.
I try to ignore them.
What clinched it for me was the gutless individual (one of these self-anointed experts, I recon) who created a nonsensical screen name to PM me, telling me I was a retard and I should go kill myself.
Some people need to get a life.

Hey Mr. Smith, good to have you back!

Nice looking woodwork you got there! (Paging Rawknees'!)

I was raised in my Dad's wood shop, and spent 7 years in the Colorado mountains framing houses and condos, also doing exterior and interior trim. Some day I'll get back to it and build my little mountain shack....

Funny thing with forums, they kind of go up and down. It seems like recently this forum has gotten back to the hardcore group that just likes working on and driving their cars...........a good thing IMHO.
