After a hellish day at the office, my FFL guy had a wonderful surprise waiting for me: this drop-dead sexy Kimber Super Carry Pro in (what else?) .45 ACP. This isn’t the first time we’ve tested the Super Carry Pro here at TTAG (click here for Jeffrey Lynch’s review from 2011) but this will be the first time I’ve ever wrapped my mitts around a loaded Kimber to sling some lead downrange . . .
It’s bad practice to write too much of a review before actually slinging said lead, but I’ll share a few first impressions. It’s got crazy good looks (although my inner traditionalist still does a double-take at that rounded butt) and the only ergonomic burr under my saddle is an unexpected extra millimeter of trigger takeup.
And I’ll leave it at that until I’ve done my range work and formed my own opinions. I’ve got many boxes of ammo with ‘Kimber‘ figuratively written all over them, and a major shooting trip planned for next weekend. Full review to follow…carry on.
