I've added 4 more 1911's in the last 4 days, I have been on a spending spree... Now my gun kitty is dry!

1st I bought a new Kimber Eclipse 10mm. I know I've read MANY bad reviews of Kimber, but I guess I need to find out myself! It's not here yet, but here's the stock photo:

The next day I find this used Kimber Aegis Elite 45acp and couldn't resist:

The following day I have a guy I know wanting my P938 that I had for sale. Well.. He offered me his Colt Delta Elite 10mm for my Sig and a very reasonable difference. I've never had a colt, so again... I couldn't resist!

Now the fourth day (last night) I'm watching an auction on Gunbroker nearing the end at a much too low price. I had been watching the auction for over a week. It was for a beautiful EB Kobra Carry that's grey! I've never seen an all grey one personally. Anyway... There's 30 seconds left and I'm debating... I don't want to watch someone else get this for this cheap! Well, I put in a bid not really expecting to get it. Now I'm very anxiously waiting for this one!!!!

Nice buys!! I have a 10mm eclipse. It is a really fun gun to shoot and think you will enjoy it. I bought my first colt about a month ago. Haven’t shot it yet, life has been pretty busy this holiday season.

Don’t believe everything you read on the net. There is nothing wrong with Kimber. No company is perfect, they all have ups and downs. It just seems that it’s only acceptable to trash Kimbers and all other major 1911 makers are off limits LOL

It happens. I’ve been relatively quiet on the acquiring 1911s front. That’s about to change, though. Picking up a ACW Anomaly tonight and hopefully in the next week or two a large package from CCP will arrive at my FFL. Gonna be a Merry Christmas for me.

A man in your condition should NEVER touch a custom build.
I consider you to be an expert in the field, so I will heed your advice. For now..

I'm hoping I don't regret the decision, but sometimes I'm one that has to find out myself haha

Congrats! Looks like You had a great week to me!!
Thanks, it was a great week! Now I just have to find time to get to the range! Work has been crazy this week, and the weekend is pretty full of house projects. My wife is meeting her friend for coffee Saturday morning, I think that's my opportunity to sneak away haha

Kimber came in today. I got it cleaned up, and 5 guns are headed to the range with me in the morning. The trigger feels a little gritty, we'll see how if feels after it gets broke in. It's nowhere near the Dan Wesson Valkyrie trigger right out of the box... Time will tell :) 20181207 190634

I have 3 Eclipse 2 in 45, and 1 in 38 Super, never have had any problems with any. Shot thousands of rounds with them. I have 2 other Kimber 45’s, all steel guns, and have had no problem with them also.
