Gee, my local range takes real good care of their rental guns. Clean and well maintained. They like to sell them and get a decent price.The employees and owner at my local range are not shy in sharing their contempt or dislike for Kimber. They think they are junk.
Their experience comes from having them as rental guns. They have also mentioned the difficulty they've had dealing with Kimber and their refusal to stand behind their product.
They will tell you.... "if you want to know if gun is a good gun, look in our rental cabinet. Those guns are used and abused and not cleaned or maintenanced like they should be"
Needless to say there's no Kimbers in that cabinet.
All that said... opinions are like @$$holes, everyone has one and they usually stink.
There's lots of folks out there happily shooting KImbers.
