Yes I agree. The story was I had seen one of these several years back and just fell in love with it, but because of its price tag couldn't do, it. Then the lgs sold it. Well I made my mind up if they got another I wanted it. Well 5 or 6 months later they got 1 in. I purchased it, and have loved it ever since. It wasn't easy on the bank account, but is on the eyes. Kimber no longer makes this version, or hasn't since maybe 2010, or 2011. Its a short guide rod, comes with trijicon night sights, target trigger, and is more accurate than I am. They made 4 versions the short(carry), pro and 2 different full, size custom versions one with a rail, one without.Well if you're only gonna own one THAT's a nice lookin' choice! Very cool!
