Hey guys, my name is Chris. Im from Grapevine, married with 3 kids. Have always owned guns, but didnt have them in my house due to kids. After recent break-ins in our neighborhood, I have since gotten back into hand guns and spend alot of spare time at the DFW gun club. My first purchase was a Glock 17 9mm, which I quickly became quite proficient with but wanted more stopping power, so I purchaced a Kimber Custom II .45acp and a Kimber SIS .45 ACP.

All are a little to large for conceal or to keep in the car, so I am looking for another more compact. I would welcome any suggestions.

Dang, you bought 2?

You can make them work in the car. A 3" 1911 might be little easier, but that depends on where you have to store it in the car.

Doh, this is an intro thread!! :p

What made you come over here? Don't you have enough to keep up with at Tony Romo Fan Site Oh well, welcome anyway.

Thanks for the welcome. I have a buddy who has Kimbers and got me hooked. I only paid $675 for the Custom II the SIS was $1250. I looked at the Ultra Carry II and its probably my next purchase but, my wife is not happy about the amount of money I have been laying out on guns and ammo the last 6 months. S&W.40 Sigma is a decent gun at a great price. I just dont want to jump out there too quick. The SIS is my baby right now.

Oh, and thanks for the notice about the Romo site. Its been a project I agreed to do for a couple of years for a buddy of mine and its mainly a bunch of posts of me talking to myself. Got kinda bored this year when there wasnt a whole lot to talk about. Last year Romo would pop on himself, this year he was on the down low...cant imagine why

Besides, you're still saving for that new watch right?

No smart ass, since I agreed to not buy the custom when the SIS cought my eye and they charged my card and got them both.
Remember...I cant get a CHL, but we agreed the Castle doctrine would allow me to carry in the car. Both Kimbers and the Glock are too large to keep anywhere but the Glove box so, she wants me to sell the Glock or trade it for a smaller gun. As for the watch...she got me a new one this year
