A first look at the Kimber Tactical Pro II

I’ve been looking at the Kimber Tactical Pro II for about 3 months now at my local gun store 🙂 It’s a 4″ 1911 thats identical in feel to my Kimber Pro Carry.

This Tactical Pro II is chambered in 9mm however, making the the lightweight aluminum frame/steel slide 4″ 1911 much more manageable in terms of recoil for those with small hands like my wife. Read more

Kimber Solo CDP Range Report – notes from the firing line

Kimber Solo CDP 9mm Grouping

I was pretty apprehensive when I purchased my Kimber Solo 9mm, as I’ve heard a lot of horror stories regarding Kimber Solo jams, jamming issues and various other bullet feeding complaints. After shooting several rounds in the back yard without jamming, I figured a trip to the range was needed.

Today I took my new Kimber Solo CDP to the range. I really was not feeling all that up to it, I think I had one to many beers last night 🙂

Anyway, I brought the following loads with me to the range for testing purposes:

  • 124gr Hornady XTP custom factory loads
  • 115gr Hand Loaded Berry’s Plated bullets on top of 6.1gr of Alliant Power Pistol powder
  • 115gr Speer Gold-Dot’s
Hornady 124gr XTP Custom
