Well, first of all I think I'm going to have to stop reading posts on this forum. Everybody talks about there new gun and it just makes me want another one!!!! I'm gonna go broke on this site!!!. Congrats on your Kimber. Dont own one but I can tell you what kind of ammo I use for self defence, and without a douht I use and fully trust the remington golden sabre bullet. I keep a mag filled with 9mm and 45. Use the cheep stuff to target practice.
