    I was killing time when a call of mine went by the wayside at a Gunstore in SLC yesterday.....I was just window shopping...listening to the typical BS between the Commandoes and sheople...WHEN.................I spotted a gun in the used case.
    HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM?????????????????????????

    A Kimber Custom 2....looked very clean. Can I see that.............
    Nice trigger....NO Bushing marks on the barrel....Bore was NEW!

    This was a NEW unfired gun in the used case.....being sold on consignment.....looked at the slide stop....had this little weird
    plastic switch on it.....me being the curious kid I am.....I turn it.

    (NOT THE WED ONE>>>>>>>DONT PWESS THE WED BUTTON! :D )

    Its a LaserMax internal laser........(EYES GET BIG :what: ) Its pulsing on the ceiling of the store.......OK...if the gun hasnt been fired and its got a Laser.....must be new or at least not fired......OK......Hmmmm????????????

    How much? :what: :what: My VISA got friction burns coming of my wallet...it almost set off the smoke alarms :cool:

    $$$$$$$ 600 $$$$$$$$$$$$$

    SCORE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I actually had to think about it for a minute...but then

    :banghead: :cuss: had my temporary moment of clarity!

    Ill let you know how it shoots.....should be a "Way Keeper"

    Shoot well

    BTW.......:neener:

    Great. The one day I don't visit Gallenson's and PCRCCW gets the deal... :rolleyes:

    That's OK, though. You weren't there the day I got my LNIB Delta Elite Gold Cup for Eight and a Quarter with four mags... ;) :neener: :evil: :p :D

    Kimberrrr Hmmm?? Will it outshoot the 75SA?

    Guess you have a .45 now, and don't need my 97BSA.

    Heres the gun with gun show grips....for a first shoot today, I did a couple of 3" 25 yd 5 shot groups from a rest with it....Im impressed...thats good for me...with an unfamiliar gun.......
    This is cool too...it was around 6pm and cloudy...the laser could be seen at 25 yds fairly well. Pulsing helps acquistion come very quickly. Anyway...I believe I like this gun...Alot! :D It carries well too....
    CZF....Cant answer yet....LOL :rolleyes: Ill have to get them both at a good indoor range next week. Could be a fun little shoot....:D

    A Comparison...Oem Kimber Custom vs CZ 75 SA 9mm Custom....hmmmmm? This could be interesting.........

    But then again...we could do the Kimber/SA9/97 comparison........
    Just send it too me and Ill have to make up my own mind>>>>
    K? Pretty please? :rolleyes:

    Shoot well

    Drat! You win this time, PCRCCW! But I shall have my day!

    Seriously, nice pistol, great find. You must have karma in surplus.
