    When are they debating/ voting on it, I haven't seen anything about it.

    Bet you're glad no one was threatening your life or home during that time.

    So stupid on the wait but congrats still. I am confident you'll like the weapon.

    thanks again.

    prior to shooting it, it's almost indistinguishable from my Gen 3.

    Monday we will see if there is a recoil difference that is noticeable, but it seems she likes the stadard backstrap best so far.

    And she needs a bit of practice with the different mechanisms(mag release, slide stop, etc) but she showed me last night she can function it. She does really hate to load a Mag, but that's no biggie since it came with 3... if 42 bulletts aren't enough no amount of reloading will suffice.

    Now Im starting to ponder the next purchase for myself... 1911 vs G21g4... Not too soon though. And I think I may even want an AR-15 first(while I'm able to get one).

    I highly recommend a 1911 for any gun collection.

    It's an iconic weapon, fun to shoot, incredibly accurate, etc.

    meh... virtually indistinguishable to fire as well. I actually shot a smaller group with my Gen3 this morning. No biggie, I'm still happy with the $50 upcharge if only for a spare mag. The adjustable backstraps seem designed for people with Hulk hands.

    On the bright side, My wife effectively changed mags, activated the slide and even loaded mags into the 5-8 round range consistantly and competently, and again shot with quite reasonable accuracy. Very happy with our purchase.

    I think next time at the range I will leave my gun home and rent a 1911.

    Rent a Kimber if you can.

    By far, the best of the 1911 manufacturers.

    will certainly try to. They have a good selection at Continental, but not sure they go that far. I know jsut from a cursory look that they had at least a few different 1911's plus the full size Glock 45. A friend of mine has a Wilson Combat 1911 composite that I can shoot if we ever make it to the range at the same time, but despite it's $3k pricetag, he is not a far and would not recommend it as he has already had misfeed/jamming issues in it's first 500 shots fired. Kinda sad that such an old and proven design functions so poorly from a high-end manufacturer.

    Get your 1911 mags from Wilson, not their firearms.

    Had my Kimber for 4 years now and not one problem.

    Here's a question. Does anybody know anywhere to get ammo currently? Nobody has ANY, a bit ridiculous....

    Gun shows are getting the priority right now.

    I placed an order with Brownells last month on .45 and 9mm. Might want to try there too.

    Nope. They're out too. Did I unknowingly by the most popular caliber handgun in the world or something? Pretty sure 9mm was, but I guess .40 is right up there.
