    Yes Eli, I shoot rapid fire, one handed with no problem. The grips allow a very good grip. The front strap has the vertical cuts also. Walt

    Hi Eli,
    Actually, Brownells and other places carry his products NEW! That's part of why he can't keep up and the wait thru his site can be a couple months (worth it though, if you ask me, but not needed as Brownell's usually has 'em and his site has other links for retailers) - he has to keep up with retailers orders. That Summer Special is a heckuva nice design.

    Walt - I like your silicone idea. Gonna try it today. Thanks for the idea. That's what I love about this forum. There's always something to learn no matter how long you've been shootin'.

    Eli, when time comes I will definetly check those summer specials out. thanks. Walt do you have new /current RCP, and you say no ambi. Got to ask boss, maybe he was thinking of something else? And yes sir, I will continue with point shooting, getting better each time. I have keys to range, lately I have been getting there early before opening time. Easier to concentrate on my shooting. And I agree with Eli, those Aggis grips are real nice too.

    The dealer got it on March 27 and I bought it the 31st of March. Your boss is mistaken about having an ambi, unless he ordered yours with one. I talked to Kimber today about having a regular hammer put on mine. They can do it, no problem, but I haven't made up my mind yet. I'm still looking for an advantage to having the bobbed hammer. It would make since if it was a double action. I'm mulling it over some more. Some people would never carry on condition 1, cocked & locked, but that's the way I carry. I ran another 100 rounds through it today, (400 rounds) WWB. That's it, tomorrow I will start shooting my lead handloads. It is flawless in performance, extremely accurate with that Match barrel, and it's growing on me. This is the perfect gun for defensive shooting. The break-down is iffy with that stupid pin that has to be placed on the recoil spring group. It helps to snip off the end of the tool about the thickness of a gnat's butt. You will see what I'm talking about.
    I'm not sure how often the recoil spring group needs to be replaced. Hopefully Wolfe has those springs. Hope things thaw out up there soon, I grew up in Maine, so I know what the winter is like. I grew up in a stone castle on the ocean, in Cape Elizabeth, Maine, I kid you not. Got a go eat....later.

    I am usually the master of this, not really answering a question As I should. Meaning, drifting off into La La land then realizing after I post, saying to myself, what are you talking about. I know now I am amoung my peers. Not that I am keeping score or anything but- Lets see, It was Paul with the summer special, me with the silicone spray. Walt, with the ah who cares, Im not alone, was Eli with the Aegis grips? anyway I love you guys, Your alright with me. Gotta go to work, chit chat later.

    JM, you're a riot! what was the silicone spray idea? i'm getting confussed myself! (it was me with the Aegis grips) man, it must be nice to have keys to the range. i live about 15 miles from the nearest outdoor range, and with work i'm lucky if i get out once a week. i've had my latest 1911 (cdp pro) for two+ months and only have 235 rounds through it.
    walt, it seems to me that, so long as you carry condition 1, there's no point in keeping that hammer. IMO, it would look pretty slick with a commander. really, the only benefit is keeping it out of the way for carry, right?....in that, if not carried con. 1, it's not exposed for catching on clothes, etc.
    paul, i DO like that SS design! i've had my eye on that for a while now. i think he kinda' coined that one, didn't he?...the design that is. is it carried right at 3 o'clock? if so, how do you think it would fair, carried at 5ish.....? i like to carry at the kidneys (i think i'm correctly labeling the place that feels the most comfortable to me.....tucked right in to the right of the spine).

    Walt, I always carry locked and loaded, how are you going to pull slide quick enough If trouble comes a knocking. I am glad gun is starting to grow on you, and your not wasting no time breaking it in. I remember you saying this is what you like to do best. I didnt think it came ambi, If boss did order it for me with ambi that will be cool. I was drawn to it, because of that hammer. I would like to keep it, if I dont feel any snaging. I seen on forum the breakdown, or field strip precedure for small kimbers. And yes, that skiny rod has me worried also. I am going to go real slow with that one. After this week, it supposed to warm up around here, Looks like RCP will be easier to hide with summer type clothing than my big ones. Pictures are going to be a hard one, no camera and this computer knowledge of mine is very limited. I will try though, as soon as I am able. Think wife wants digital camera for mothers day, ELI question I think?

    Eli, up there where Johnny lives, it's a different world. He says trouble comes in two or more. That shooting range is exactly where some punks would try to hold up for the guns. I'm glad he's thinking, that's how Atlanta is too. If you have a problem, it will be with a group of low life. I carry a Sig 229 in the Sig357 round, 13 rounds when I go down there at night. I'll shoot them through the windshield if they try to car-jack me. I hope it never happens, but if it does I should be ready. I won't hesitate either, if it looks funny, bang bang bang.

    Bruce Nelson is the fella who came up with the original design some time back and Milt, Wilson's and others have adopted it. It's a VERY comfortable way to go. I prefer IWB and these will work in any position. I default to the kidney - just around the curve of my side but not too close to the middle of my back either. The UCII in Milt's 3 1/2" Summer Special is comfortable all day long. No digging in. The 5 inchers carry quite well too but obviously will be a bit heavier and a touch longer. I don't get uncomfortable with a 5"er all day but the UCII is a dream for concealed carry.

    BTW, all Sparks holsters are hand-made to order by a handful of skilled craftsmen. They aren't bulk produced which is why it can be a bit of a wait thru them directly. I got mine from Brownell's. They usually have 'em in stock and Sparks has to keep their big buyers happy so it is usually quicker that way. There are some real fine holsters out there and Sparks are right up there...
