    which Kimber?

    OK, I'm lusting for my first 1911 45 and I've got a little mad money (don't tell the DW ).

    I've read many forums with suggestions for the 'first 1911' and I realize there are many choices. If I am willing to spend up to $1K, which Kimber would be my best bet? I want a full size and I don't necessarily want a light weight gun. I do love the way Kimbers look and I figure I may just as well get a good looking pistol.

    I shoot targets and may, just may, do some IDPA shooting at a later time.

    I picked up my SS Target II a few weeks back. I selected that one for a number of reasons; the grip felt really good in my hands (it's a rubber grip), it has fully adjustable target sights, and I just generally liked the way the gun felt. I handled many Kimbers as well as other 1911s and kept coming back to the Target II. If you get a chance to shoot one I would be surprised if you didn't like it.
    Just one man's opinion!!

    Oh yea.. I paid $839+ tax (new)

    Well, I ended up with a Kimber Eclipse Custom II. Hope to get to the range later this week and try it out.

    First time at range with new Kimber Eclipse....gun performed flawlessly on some Federal 230 gr factory ammo. This is my first .45 and first time shooting a 1911. I was more accurate than expected at 30 ft. Looking forward to shooting this gun a lot more and getting even better with it.
