Hi and welcome......JJ
I was glad to see your forum. I own four Kimbers and have yet to have a failure of any kind. Nor have any of the MIM parts disintegrated like some would lead you to believe.
I did have a problem with my last Kimber, a Super Carry Custom HD, but it's not a failure issue - I posted a thread about that.
Actually Tangle is my dog's name - she just let's me use it. When I first got her, she kept herself or her leash tangled around my legs, so she got the name Tangle.
Well, you know from my posts, I've shot and preferred a lot of different guns, even promoted non-1911 guns as advantageous. I've had that annoying grip safety block on 1911s; I have a thumb that's changed profiles over the years and doesn't catch the thumb safety the way it used to. Still.....
I simply cannot get away from a 1911! I've been shooting and carrying my Kimber Tactical Pro a lot lately and lovin' it. So, yeah, I'm gonna need some intervention
