Hey guys. this is only my second post, so hello to all. I just purchased a stainless Pro Carry in .40 cal. Anyone else own one of these? If so, what ammo are you carrying? Next question, who makes .40 cal mags? I have heard that the .45 mags will work, but havent tried it yet. Any info and feedback is appreciated.

Sorry, for the outburst, just got off a rough shift. Thanks anyway, though.

Well, I guess I got a good one. Put 250 rounds through it yesterday without one single failure of any kind. Ball and hollowpoints.

It is good to hear a positive Kimber experience. I'm glad you like the gun. I'm curious, why did you chose it in .40? Just curious is all, there are a lot of people that freak when you mention a different caliber than .45 in a 1911.

I have had several duty weapons in .40 cal, and really liked the round. BUT, I like the 1911 style pistols as well. I have owned a Kimber Custom Classic, as well as a Springfield in .45ACP. When I saw the Pro Carry in the .40 cal, It was sort of the best of both worlds for me. Dont get me wrong, I am a .45 fanatic, but for duty use, I just prefer the .40 cal performance. Also, our department is going to .40 caliber issued weapons, and I will have the option to carry my own personal weapon, as long as it is a .40. The Pro Carry has everything I need in a duty weapon. full size grip, shorter barrel, for easier off duty carry, and it is almost as light as my Glock 22. Plus, being a 1911, it is fast and accurate.

Glad to hear you like the gun. I just ordered on in .45 but have to wait 2 weeks to take it home (Hawaii). But the dealer is a shooting instructor with me and will bring it to the range this week for some fun.
