    Kimber's rule!!!



    AN ACTUAL CRAIG'S LIST PERSONALS AD
    To the Guy Who Tried to Mug Me in Downtown Savannah night before last.
    Date: 2011-11-27, 1:43 am. E.S.T.
    I was the guy wearing the black Burberry jacket that you demanded that I hand over, shortly after you pulled
    the knife on me and my girlfriend, threatening our lives. You also asked for my girlfriend's purse and earrings. I can only hope that you somehow come across this rather important message.
    First, I'd like to apologize for your embarrassment; I didn't expect you to actually crap in your pants when
    I drew my pistol after you took my jacket.. The evening was not that cold, and I was wearing the jacket for a reason.. my girlfriend was happy that I just returned safely from my 2nd tour as a Combat Marine in Afghanistan .. She had just bought me that Kimber
    Custom Model 1911 .45 ACP pistol for my birthday, and we had picked up a shoulder holster for it that very evening. Obviously you agree that it is a very intimidating weapon when pointed at your head ... isn't it?!
    I know it probably wasn't fun walking back to wherever you'd come from with crap in your pants. I'm sure it
    was even worse walking bare-footed since I made you leave your shoes, cell phone, and wallet with me. (That prevented you from calling or running to your buddies to come help mug us again).
    After I called your mother or "Momma" as you had her listed in your cell, I explained the entire episode of
    what you'd done. Then I went and filled up my gas tank as well as those of four other people in the gas station, -- on your credit card. The guy with the big motor home took 153 gallons and was extremely grateful!
    I gave your shoes to a homeless guy outside Vinnie Van Go Go's, along with all the cash in your wallet. [That
    made his day!]
    I then threw your wallet into the big pink "pimp mobile" that was parked at the curb ..... after I broke the
    windshield and side window and keyed the entire driver's side of the car.
    The FBI guy seemed really intense and we had a nice long chat (I guess while he traced your number etc.).
    ;In a way, perhaps I should apologize for not killing you ... but I feel this type of retribution
    is a far more appropriate punishment for your threatened crime. I wish you well as you try to sort through some of these rather immediate pressing issues, and can only hope that you have the opportunity to reflect upon, and perhaps reconsider, the career path
    you've chosen to pursue in life.. Remember, next time you might not be so lucky. Have a good day!
    Thoughtfully yours, Semper fi,
    Alex

    Actually, Kimbers are the single most overpriced and overrated 1911 brand in existence.

    If that's your definition of "ruling", well, more power to you, I guess.

    Really? How do you feel about Nighthawks, then?

    For what it's worth, I adore my Kimber. If my kids don't want it when I die, then it will be the only possession to go with me to the grave



    Oh, and as far as the OP; you do know this has been posted and snoped to death, right?

    Hardly ever see 'em. Kimbers get the "most overrated" award for being so dern popular.

    That just tells me that there's a reason for their popularity. But whatever floats your goat; I'm a Kimber fan girl and I admit it.

    IMO all 1911's rule, not just Kimbers. Most are well functioning copies of the original, there really is not allot to screw up.

    Well this being a OC site and all, I wonder if the intended victims would have even been approached if the guy was OCing. Since this came from crackslist who knows if this is fiction or not?

    Although they do get bonus points if they don't have plastic MSHs.

    1911A1 with a few holes drilled in the trigger, a see through hammer, and match grade looking front and rear sights. Then there is the ole 1911A1 mil-spec that I carried when on watch, $880 at Bass Pro for that?

    $730 for a Remington R1? Crap load of money for a plain ole 45. Kimber and others jazzed up the ole mule and now we gotta pay thoroughbred prices for a mule.
