I waited about 20 years to get one, never figured a plastic pistol would work, theres a reason police and military went polymer :biggrin: Rock your Glock! Might I add the Glock 10mm is one of the hottest hunting handguns around.

Jim, congrats on a VERY NICE Kimber 45. That's one sharp looking pistol. You made a great purchase. Enjoy!

Is the 10mm that much better be than the 45?

In a word, yes. The full power 10mm exceeds the 45 ACP by quite a bit.

You can convert some 45 ACP chambered handguns to 45 Super. That's a whole new power level in a 45 ACP pistol. I converted my Colt Competition to fire 45 Super. However, I still like the 10mm in my Colt Delta Elite.

No I doubt the Kimber will ever see the river or the kayak. Thats just a risk I'm not willing to take :nono:
I did take it out and briefly shoot it a few times the other day. VERY BRIEFLY cause I was in the woods and the mosquitoes were horrible. Shot a couple clips at some expired vegetable cans and got the heck out of there.
I love the smooth crisp trigger and the way she barks :thumb2:
Insanely accurate too. Love this thing so far. So glad I finally got one.

I have heard that the mosquitoes are large enough up there to be used as targets - just saying.

Now I have a vision of a man standing in the woods shooting at things that a person a reasonable distance away can't see.  I can hear it now, "Remember watching that crazy guy shooting at ghosts?"

I've always had a soft spot for 1911's.   Here is a pic of my Colt pre-series 70 that I bought from a Marine PX over 50 years ago.   The bottom Colt 1911 is my son's West Point pistol.

It probably did look like I was shooting ghost Jerry. LOL she was entertaining though.

I'm trying to figure out how high the last piece of tomato went.  :laf:
On the left side of the clip, about 2/3rd up, there's a horizontal leaf that catches the last chunk of tomato at the 17 second mark.
I feel like that baby was 20 feet in the air  :alscalls:

Flying tomatoes.  Sounds like a good name for a high-wire act.
