Sorry Seminole, but I will NEVER own a Kimber again. Owned 2 of them, and there is no way on God's green earth I would put my life on the line with either one of them. Worked and worked on them, and could NOT get them to quit failing. Every fail in the book happened multiple times on each gun. Couldn't get 100 rounds without a failure. The name "Kimber" makes me shudder every time I hear it.
I admit, I did contemplate the Glock 40 (long slide) for a bit, but decided against it pretty quickly when I knew I would be using this gun for CC and open carry. The open carry is easy. But trying to CC a long slide doesn't work to well for me.
Racksmasher, what makes you say the Glock is the ford pinto compared to the 1911? I wouldn't put it that far behind in accuracy, or dependability, and those are what really matter. Now if you are talking about aesthetics, then yeah, there is NO WAY anyone will ever convince me that a Glock looks good. They don't. They just, don't.
