Hi everyone, bought my 2nd ever 1911 yesterday. My first was a rock island I had for years I bought a Kimber yesterday.

Looking forward to learning how to properly care for it.

Watch Youtube videos on how to care for it. Get outside training if you plan to carry it.

Besides cleaning and oiling , be sure to feed them regularly (at least 50 rounds a week) !

Thank you all for the warm welcome, I figured since it was just a Kimber custom II no one would want pictures there must be hundreds on here by now lol. I actually traded in my old compact rock island I bought in 2012 and another gun for it. Haven't shot it yet but I plan too. I ended up buying a recover tactical rail system for it today. Going to see how it goes!

I've been doing tons of research trying to see if I made a good purchase or not, seems Kimbers reputation took a large hit around 2011-12 so I'm just digging in to the history of this manufacturer. I was under the impression that it was a top tier 1911, but now I'm not so sure.
