    Different strokes is all. You can't let someone who doesn't have the same preferances as you worry you. I have learned over the course of time people even buy Kel Tecs so I wish them luck and thank God that I did not make the same choice they did. If this gun performs and serves you well, as I would expect it does you will be satisfied and hideit will probably still not be impressed with the 5.25.

    Like I said before enjoy and be safe

    It's more like you have an Edsel that hasn't broken down yet. I've shot 4 matches a month for 7 years. It isn't an "I saw a bad Kimber once" kind of deal, it's more of an "I haven't seen a good one yet" type deal. I've seen hundreds--maybe into the thousands--and they all puke at some point. The serious 1911 guys who don't have problems are shooting Wilsons, Nighthawk Customs, and Baers. The rest have problems (Springfields excepted--they seem to run well)

    The internet can make small problems seem like the plague.

    If I wanted to check this sort of thing out I would go to a website devoted exclusively to Kimber forums and read what they have to say. You will get a good feel for the amount of problems by reading those entries.

    There is also a big difference between (any brand) owners who shoot sometimes and those who compete with one. What makes one happy is of little consequence to the other.

    am 2 punches away from B Class. I've been shooting a DT10 that is a 90% fit (needs a tad more cast). I have a K80 ProSporter that is a 100%

    The thing about reviews in magazines? You'll never see a bad one. They are paid by the company to write up the gun, given all kinds of swag, etc. The gun rags are hideous for doing positive reviews of questionable firearms.

    I'm with the former poster--good luck with the XD.If you're not used to quality firearms, it should do fine. All I can say is "Thank God it's not a Kimber". I saw a guy once with a new Kimber commander model shooting his first match, using 165 grain semi wadcutter reloads. I mean THE PERFECT STORM for jams. By the end of the stage he had more live ammo on the ground than empty brass. I have never seen a Kimber in USPSA or IDPA run well, ever. I keep track of such things! I've seen Wilsons, a Nighthawk, and even a RIA do very well, but the Kimbers always endup in the dead cockroach position.
