I am looking at it for a carry piece. I am not a large guy, so many of the hand guns out there would not easily be concealed on my frame. For example my Sig 229 .40 cal is a great gun, but no way could I carry concealed. My Sig 238 is easily concealed, but I am thinking I would like something with a bit more kick to it. I have not fired a Kimber before, but have handled the UCII's at the shows. They are a great fit for my hand. The weight seems good and I am happy with the overall feel of it. In my looking around, I have handled Glock's, Springfield XDM line, Taurus slim line, LC9, Khar's etc. I don't like the feel/fit to my hand and of those that I have fired, frankly I prefer my 229 and 238. Any comments, thoughts, or suggestions from those who have used the Kimber's would be appreciated.
