    124 grain out of the P07 and 365. The Sig ran great. Haven't shot the Kimber in a while and dang she shoot good
    50 rounds into each target with each gun. 12 yds.
    Pic 1 is the Kimber 45 SOC desert warrior. Pic 2 is 50 rounds at 12 yds with Kim.
    Pic 3 is 50 rounds with the CZ P07 at 12 yds and Pic 4 is the target with 50 rounds through at 12 yds.
    Promise not to post too many of these, but thought they were cool.

    The old worn out .45 appears to be the most accurate. My Kimber .45 is the most accurate handgun in my safe as well.

    Ha. The bonafides states it was built, owned and carried by John Browning himself under his alias of Kimber. Thus the old condition and being kept in an undisclosed concrete bunker on Flagpole Mountain

    Kimber made some fine 1911's when they first got into the business of building them. Mine is from their earlier inventory. I've heard since they went into mass production, their QC has gone downhill some, but that's indicative of the gun market in general.
    It seems the days of gun manufacturers taking a design to the field and busting 10,000 caps to prove its reliability is over and done with.
    Cad Cam designs prove in the minds of engineers that the design will work and it's sent out to the public for beta testing resulting in Gen 1, Gen II, Gen III, ad nauseum.
    I don't understand how in today's market where guns have a very low profit margin, they can rush a design to market and expect the public to back them when you have to make constant returns to the factory.
    It doesn't fit a successful business model.

    My Kimber, to me, is flawless. Laser accuracy and reliability. It's the exact model of one of my friends (shooting his made me drop the coin) and his is just as perfect. Kimber gets a lot of bad press. I have no idea how the others function, but new or not, mine is spot on.

    Mine too. Used it in competition for a couple of years in USPSA and it never failed me.

    Dennis, I think you may posted a pic of yours, but if you get a chance, I'd dig seeing a shot of it.
