    Hey guys, gotta question about Kimber Pro-Carry 2's.
    Does anybody carry one of these as an OC gun?
    If not, does anybody have any experience OCing of these?
    Basically, is this good for OC or not?
    Thanks guys

    Well,

    its 1/2 of an inch shorter than a standard commander 1911....

    so its pretty much just a good ol modern style commander 1911.

    Its from Kimber, so theres a pretty damn good chance that its gonna work the way its supposed to.

    I dont really understand what you mean by a good open carry gun...

    when it comes to open carry, it really doesn't matter what your carrying as long as you like it.

    CC is where things can get tricky.

    *shrugs*


    OH NO!!! I cant seem to think of anything "funny" and/or "wise" to put in my forum signature...NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! lol

    What I had meant is, is it big enough to carry.
    Doesn't matter now though. Haha. I couldn't pass up the deal. I realized something when I held the gun; it's pretty much the same size as the XD45 Service model that I had.

    I have one. It is .45 caliber and that is certainly a decent round. It is suited for both OC and CC. Concealed carry as it is shorter than a full size 1911. I consider it a well made gun, at least mine is, so yes

    I have an "Ultra Carry II" and carry it often. The "Ultra" is a 3" barreled version 1911. At 20yds, no rest, I have not problem shooting 5" 7 round groups with it.

    I love my Kimber!

    I have one, it's a very nice gun and yes I do open carry it. The gun is an awsome open carry gun, it's lighter and slightly smaller than a full size but doesn't really sacrifice accuracy, quality, or magcapacity. I did have one problem with the shells ejecting in my face so I sent it back to Kimber, they paid for shipping both ways and in about 1 week I had it back plus they reduced the trigger pull, detailed it, and sent me a free 7rd magazine! I have nothing but good things to say about the gun!

    ?
    They replaced the extractor and that fixed the problem so something to do with that, also they sent me an extra mag, to make sure the problem was with the extractor and not with the magazine.
