New Kimber 45.........

Been a few years since I owned or bought a Kimber, after a few months of looking I finally pulled the trigger and picked up a new Kimber TLE.

First impression....really nice, well made, snug fit up, zero play in barrel, no sharp edges, very clean build. I headed to the range this past weekend to shoot some rounds thru it and do some general tested, i.e. plinking :-)

Best of the day......

a little luck goes a long way but I will take it, 185gr lead load shot decent....

7 rounds, should have quit after 5 shots but I got greedy, it happens ;-)

All shot using a two hand hold from 10 yards, a dozen or so group targets then the sun started peeking thru the trees at a angle making accurate shooting hard, really ghosting the sights so I gave up group shooting and just had some fun banging away with it.

It is nice having my own private range but it is a short hike into the woods and the sun angle on clear days is hard on my shooting in the AM to early afternoon hours, but its free so I can't complain.

Overall a great day, nice pistol and got to visit with my younger sister for a bit, range is on her property, thanks sis :-D

Very nice Gunner.

After reading your post, I went and looked at Kimbers online. Is yours a Kimber TLE II? I did notice the sights as well, very nice.
