    I bought a Kimber Pol ymer Gold Match .45 Cal

    I just bought a Kimber Polymer Gold Match .45 Cal.



    I didn't even know that Kimber made a "Plastic" gun.

    Any one own one of these or can anyone give me any information on it?

    I'm off to shoot it this afternoon.

    Your right I've never seen one.

    I've gotten very good input from different gun forums.

    I think I've found out that BUL made the frames and Kimber (McCormick) supplied the tops.

    I just got back from the range.

    It shot like a Kimber - in other words - like a dream.

    Absolutely not a failure of any kind in my 1st 100 shots.

    I usually do not take pictures of my targets - but here are my 1st ten shots



    that's from 21' and is probably as good as I can do.

    The reason I do not usually take pictures is that I get worse the longer I shoot.

    Looks like I've found a "keeper"

    I like it.

    I called Kimber and found out the frame is made by BUL Israel and the rest of the gun by Kimber in house.

    In 1994 the did get a lot of design help from Chip McCormick, but did not sub-contract any manufacturing to him.

    My gun was made in made 10/24/2001.

    They made this gun for about 8 to 9 years.

    a true story on kimber.



    AN ACTUAL CRAIG'S LIST PERSONALS AD
    To the Guy Who Tried to Mug Me in Downtown Savannah night before last.
    Date: 2010-09-27, 1:43 a.m. E.S.T.
    I was the guy wearing the black Burberry jacket that you demanded that I hand over, shortly after you pulled the knife on me and my girlfriend, threatening our lives. You also asked for my girlfriend's purse and earrings. I can only hope that you somehow come across this rather important message.
    First, I'd like to apologize for your embarrassment; I didn't expect you to actually crap in your pants when I drew my pistol after you took my jacket.. The evening was not that cold, and I was wearing the jacket for a reason..my girlfriend was happy that I just returned safely from my 2nd tour as a Combat Marine in Afghanistan.. She had just bought me that Kimber Custom Model 1911 .45 ACP pistol for my birthday, and we had picked up a shoulder holster for it that very evening. Obviously you agree that it is a very intimidating weapon when pointed at your head ... isn't it?!
    I know it probably wasn't fun walking back to wherever you'd come from with that brown sludge in your pants. I'm sure it was even worse walking bare-footed since I made you leave your shoes, cell phone, and wallet with me. [That prevented you from calling or running to your buddies to come help mug us again].
    After I called your mother or "Momma" as you had her listed in your cell, I explained the entire episode of what you'd done. Then I went and filled up my gas tank as well as those of four other people in the gas station, -- on your credit card. The guy with the big motor home took 153 gallons and was extremely grateful!
    I gave your shoes to a homeless guy outside Vinnie Van Go Go's, along with all the cash in your wallet. [That made his day!]
    I then threw your wallet into the big pink "pimp mobile" that was parked at the curb .... after I broke the windshield and side window and keyed the entire driver's side of the car.
    Later, I called a bunch of phone sex numbers from your cell phone. Ma Bell just now shut down the line, although I only used the phone for a little over a day now, so what 's going on with that? Earlier, I managed to get in two threatening phone calls to the DA's office and one to the FBI, while mentioning President Obama as my possible target.
    The FBI guy seemed really intense and we had a nice long chat (I guess while he traced your number etc.).
    ;In a way, perhaps I should apologize for not killing you ... but I feel this type of retribution is a far more appropriate punishment for your threatened crime. I wish you well as you try to sort through some of these rather immediate pressing issues, and can only hope that you have the opportunity to reflect upon, and perhaps reconsider, the career path you've chosen to pursue in life.. Remember, next time you might not be so lucky. Have a good day!
    Thoughtfully yours, Semper Fi,
    Alex
    God bless our Marines....and ALL our Military!!!!!!!!!!
