    Who, in the Houston area, has the best in store Kimber selection? The few stores I've been to each had ONE.

    I have Kimber's. :happy0001:

    You may not find many "good" store that keep a large inventory. Most "dealers" buy through distributors. Carters Country is a dealer and a smaller local store. Gander Mountain, Cabellas Bass Pro are all dealers. I've seen a decent selection at Cabella's but they usually don't have the ones that make sense to have. They tend to keep the "cool" looking ones that catch new buyers eyes. How many average Joe's need a TLE/RL? Not many, but they always seem to push them on new buyers 'cause they're tacticool.

    You need to find a Master Dealer. They have the clout with Kimber as well as the very best pricing from Kimber.

    There is a Dealer locator on the front page of Kimbers site. Try this. I appears it's pulling all Houston area dealers with the zip I used. Kimber Dealer Locator

    If you know what you want, and want a great deal, contact Sporting Arms at Welcome to SportingArms.com, your source for discount firearms, ammo, and accessories. Brands such as Browning, Kimber, Remington, Sigarms, Colt, Winchester and more.. Email or phone works. They're not far from me but do a ton of web business and are Master Dealers. It's Tom and Becky although Becky handles the day to day for the most part. Awsome people to deal with and great pricing and they'll ship to you're local FFL unless you want to drive to Lewisville. :texas:

    The last time I was in Spectre Firearms (on Spring Cypress near 249), they had a decent selection of Kimbers. You might want to call before you haul.

    I have to add, though, that Spectre did recently jack around a friend of mine on some night sights he'd purchased along with a new Kimber.

    It's not in the Houston area, but even with the FFL charges, I've never seen a lower price.

    Check out www.chltx.com/KIMBERS.php

    His website is kinda slow, but that's about the only downfall. I purchased an Ultra Carry and a Grand Raptor from him and he also did my CHL class. He's good people.

    Not to rain on his parade, but a real Kimber Dealer will loose their affiliation with Kimber for advertising anything other than retail prices. They can sell for whatever they want to, but Kimber has a strict MAP policy. By throwing prices out there along with retail, it "appears" he's discounting quite a bit because dealer can't and don't do that. They might be decent pricing, but I can tell you this, a Master Dealer gets much better pricing.

    Again, for DFW face to face or internet ordering, I'd still recommend Sporting Arms. Especially over someone that is either not a dealer, or has no respect for Kimber's dealer agreement.

    I'm just say'n.... :mad0025:

    Check out Tomball Pawn, they sell new ones; I was recently in there and they had a few in stock and stated they were getting more in. The crew there is usually very helpful.

    Tomball pawn has a nice selection and great prices.

    Collectors Firearms has the best Kimber selection in Houston by far, no one is even close. Prices are higher there.

    Sid (Spectre) is a Master Dealer, and his prices cant be beat on Kimbers. I work there in my spare time, and am sorry to hear your friend had a bad experience as they are a great bunch of guys, and have seen them bend over backwards to make things right, if you wouldnt mind can you shoot me a pm about it?
