Kimber Ultra Carry
I've been thinking about changing over my CC weapon from a Kahr PM40 to a Kimber Ultra Carry. I've been carrying daily for the past 18 mo. and have been wanting to make a move to a 45 auto for awhile now. Any thoughts on the Kimber as a CC weapon would be a big help.
Go handle one if you have not done so yet and if you can shoot one all the better.
I really like the looks of the Kimber Ultra Carry; however, I handled one yesterday and did not like the way the metal on the backside of the grip dug into my hand. It felt like it would/could tear the skin off the palm of my hand.
I have heard a lot of people state on this forum that they carry a Kimber and specifically the Ultra Carry but it is not my cup of tea any more.
Just my .02.
I carry a Kimber Ultra CDP II. Take a look at one vs. the Ultra Carry. The CDP is lighter, has an ambi safety, standard night sights and a checkered front strap. These features are either upgrades or aftermarket additions to the Ultra Carry and add up to much more than the cost difference between the two guns. I switched from carrying an XD SC9 and have never looked back. I carry both IWB and OWB depending on conditions. This gun is thin and light and carries well. I'm put a thin set of grips on it for comfort (the checkered side grips can grate your skip when carrying IWB without an undershirt). I haven't found anything else I would carry other than this gun. 8 rounds of .45 in a small, light, thin carry package.
The CDP rides tight against me in a Don Hume belt holster.
Thanks for the advice as well the pic's. A friend of the family has one and we'll be going to the range very soon.
Please don't skip. It looks, well... funny.

Sorry can't get a pic, cause its behind me! :rolleyes: As soon as I turn around to get the picture, its behind me again!! :smt082 Ever see a dog chase his tail? :smt1099
