Currently I own three Kimbers (tactical custom, eclipse pro, and a newly acquired crimson carry ultra). While I have not fired the crimson carry ultra, I love the other 2 guns. They work flawlessly, never a FTF, and I find are an absolute pleasure to shoot. My dad has 3 kimbers, and my brother owns a CDP ultra and they carry them daily. As far as I'm concerned, the Kimber is a fine gun and we've never had a problem with them. My CCW just showed up in the mail today, and I'm proud to say that to today was my first day with the iron on the hip, and it felt good.
That being said, you should buy what you want to buy because you feel it is the best gun for you and because you are the most comfortable having it and are confident in its ability to protect your well being. While VAMarine clearly knows what he is talking about, everybody out there has reccomendations to make. I suggest reading everyone's opinion and forming your own based on the information that is presented, then making a decision from your own formed opinion.
Good luck with your purchase, hope you decide to buy the Kimber because I feel that it is a fine 1911!
