I see a few Kimber's for sale and was wondering if they are worth the extra cost. They seem to be a well made, nice looking gun with many upgrades. I am looking for a slim carry weapon in .40 or .45. These look like the ticket. I already like the 1911 style handguns and want one with a hammer and safety. I don't care for Glocks and that style. Definetly like to see the hammer cocked and the safety off, not guess. I have handled (well fondled) them at the gun shows and am thinking about an early Christmas present.
