Since emerging in the mid-1990s with the M1911 pistol, Kimber has proved to be a popular choice with gun owners nationwide. Kimber reviews are typically glowing, although there are some critics of the pistols and rifles put out by the New York based firearm manufacturer. What do gun owners have to say about Kimber's most notable firearm – the 1911 .45 caliber pistol? Here is a sampling of reviews:
OK, for some of us, at various times in our lives, the question was not “what gun do I wear?” but “How many?” The gun shops at which I worked were not in a bad part of town, nor in a high-crime town. But, we were close (sometimes perilously close) to a very bad town, indeed. More than once I arrived at work, or left for the day, packing two or three guns. Was I expecting trouble? No, had I been, my ensemble would have begun with a Winchester ‘97 or Remington 870 shotgun.
I see so much on this and other gun forums where people hate on the 1911. Many times it's because the only experience someone had was with a Kimber.
