I have never owned a 1911 style pistol, but I may soon join the ranks. I have an associate (in the USA) that has made me a delightful offer for a new Pro Carry HD in .45Auto.

This pistol will be used (when I am in the USA) for 1) target and 2) personal protection.

What are some of your impressions and/or comments regarding this handgun?

Thank you in advance.

Wm.,
I think you will be very pleased with your Kimber. I also own a Pro Carry HD and love it. I almost purchased the CDP but decided on the Pro Carry HD as it has a S/S frame and slide as opposed to an aluminum frame on the CDP. Expected life span on the S/S frame is around 100k rounds as opposed to 20k for aluminum. Accuracy is excellent and the only problem I encountered was fail to feed when shooting 200 grain semi-wad cutters. Enjoy.

I have a Pro Carry SLE which is the predecessor to and identical to an HD. I love it. In my opinion it is the best Pro carry model made. The steel frame is far superior in strength and heft to the aluminum ones. Mine feeds all FMJ loads well and has had several mags of Speer Gold Dot 230 grain through it. I have used the Kimber mags and the Wilson #47s both with success. You won't be disappointed. By the way, what is the asking price?

Billy...

I know this is off topic, but you were Footballer of the year in 1970?

DAMN!

For all you guys that don't get it, that's the equivlent of being the MVP of (pick your favourite sports league)!!!

My Grandad played third division before the war, but I can't remember the club. I was pretty much raised a Man U supporter, but the local club was QPR.

All the far I got was DIII in college as a keeper. A brief tour of Europe in 90 after my first year of college, but that's about it.

Cheers!

I have owned a Pro Carry SLE for about a year now and I like it very much.

I have seen some of the HD's with factory checkering and would like to have that and Heinie Slant Eights installed on it, but otherwise it is a great pistol.

The HD is a very, very nice gun. You'll enjoy it a lot I suspect.

It is almost as tough as a typical English "football" player :grin: Remember I said almost!

Eugene:
how much did you pay for it? I am looking at two used pro carry's, [email protected] $650.00 and one @ $695.00. The later looks like previous owner polished feed ramp as the other looks stock. Trigger on both are sweet. i just got quoted $689.00 new for a pro carry from the Sporting Arms.

Still would like to know how much you purchased yours for. Aloha!

I paid more than $689 for it...but it was there and I didn't have to wait so I went for it....it's worth every penny. I've seen 'em on gunbroker.com and auctionarms.com starting for $729.
