Is a Kimber is 1911? I like the looks of them.

Yup, the Kimber brands are the 1911 style, however most people understand that a 1911 frame usually is in .45 ACP, and of course SA/ single action only! My FNP-40 is both double action(DA), and single action (SA), for those who enjoy using single action, as I have grown to understand! I am semi beginner, if that is possible, but I love my Fabrique Nationale d'Herstal with its .40 offering! I have some special guard dog rounds by Federal for the not to nice bad guy that just hit my neighbors older citizens neighbors home! I live in a very nice upper middle class area, and these guy's just love looking for easy pray, however, an easy target they shall become, ok, well, not easy, and i am not paranoid, I just can't stand the fact people think they can get away with anything and then blame it on the poor economy, and not the lack of working anywhere, regardless of pay! Well, short story long, any choice you decide on is the best choice, and any ammo you pick, is the best ammo, and when possible, practice, practice, and more practice!

madjack, I have only had it a few weeks, only a few hundred rounds through the gun. So far accuracy is better than expected, and relibility has been perfect. Here is a full size pic.

He makes a good pistol. As long as its kept clean, it will run well.

Get the classic 1911 in trusty .45 ACP :) I was close to getting the Ruger P345, but I was beat to the punch, but the FNP-40 was my next choice, and felt good in the hand! if money allows the Colt 1911 is of course prime :)

I have a Springfield m1911 circa 1917 by the serial number. I will take some photos shortly. (Army Calvary issue)

Crappy pictures, but wanted to show off my brother's latest project. A Swiss K31 with a new walnut stock. Just waiting on the rest of the parts for the scope

Nice looking rifle. Two questions. What caliber is the rifle chambered for? And does your brother compete in benchrest shooting?

It is the original 7.5x55 Swiss, and no he just bought that to the hold the stock while he did all the wood work and to do some other little things to the Gun. He enjoys refinishing old military rifles.

He did a nice job. I collect old war rifles myself. I dont refinish them though. At the moment I dont own anything in 7.5 x 55, but I do have an old Swedish Mauser chambered in 6.5 x 55.

Its a fun hobby and its interesting to learn about all the different ways people have designed something to go bang throughout the years.

Thanks for the reply...
