There seems to be a lot of kimber haters out there for some reason. My dad had one when I was a kid and it was amazingly accurate. I bought a 3" CDP II last year and I love it as well. It has extra checkering under the trigger and front of the grip that other 1911s don't have. Impressively accurate especially for such a small pistol. The short feed ramp means it is a little picky on ammo. It doesn't like V shaped bullets like hornady defense rounds.
