I have yet to participate in the world of competative shooting and as I was looking over the various rules and regulations I kept coming across the term "modified for carry" in the IDPA descriptions of of the 4 gun classes. What if anything would need to be done to make my base OTB Kimber Custom .45 qualify as "modified for carry"?

Generally, IDPA allows other than stock triggers, sights, finishes, and grips.
A more complete list can be found at the IDPA web site.

In my experience, Kimbers don't NEED any modifications out of the box. Mine ran 100% straight out of the box. They have good sights, triggers, and are reliable.

Many people recommend using Wilson magazines. I have had no problem with the stock mags, but I carry Wilson's.

Any changes to Kimbers are done mostly for personal tastes not function.

Ok, the terms they used in the descriptions were a little misleading. The Custom Auto class kept refering to 1911 .45s that have been modified for carry, not competition. Nowhere do they mention unmodified 1911 .45s so I wasn't sure where my Kimber would fall. Thanks for the info.

All .45 acp 1911s are considered to be in the custom class whether or not the pistol is a bone stock Norinco or a $4,000 Heinie gun.

Here is the link to the IDPA rule book.
