Thanks for all the help guys, new to this site, I didn't know how to respond without posting new thread, all of your input it greatly appreciated. I put 200 rounds through my kimber with no problems, shoots great, guess my problem is that I was weary cause I've never spent that much on a pistol. Got a question though. I've heard that letting the slide go home on an empty chamber is bad for it, like it wears something out really bad? Any help on this. I haven't done this, but was warned against itand was just curious, thanks for the info!
