Looks like Kimber shows some new revolvers on their web site.  The notable one to me is a 6 shot stainless with a 3" barrel.  I think I would be much more likely to get that rather than the other models.  At least I would be more likely to use it at the range.  I think a belt holster would be needed to carry the 3" barreled gun, but I would have to see it in person. 

All of them look pretty slick.

Meh, probably OK but the styling doesn't suite my aesthetics

Who sells a Model 10? Seriously that gun was designed by God to be THE perfect revolver!

Exactly.  I have 3 of them. Would get more if finances allowed.

It was too nice to carry, my 642 looks like it has been dragged behind a garbage truck. So, to save the 10, I sold it.

Waiting for the single action army version? 


I would be interested in seeing a 4" barreled version.

It is a little odd looking, but I think I'd get over that.  Can't expect everything to be classic K-frame with just enough underlug to protect the ejector rod.

To me, the Kimber revolvers look as if the Ruger SP-101 was a design influence.

I like the cylinder flats.  Makes it slightly more concealable.  First noticed that on a Chiappa revolver.

Hmmm.  Politics today.  Leftists run around bitching, conservatives sit around bitching.  Care to guess who's gonna take all the marbles in November?

I'm also fond of classic S&W DAs.

I've currently got 2 revolvers on my "buy on sight" list, S&W 586 4" (or 686) and a Ruger Blackhawk in .357, either length.

A blued or black-ish finish would be a marked improvement, looks-wise.

Snowflakes: fragile since 1520
"The ears of our generation have been made so delicate by the senseless multitude of flatterers that, as soon as we perceive that anything of ours is not approved of, we cry out that we are being bitterly assailed; and when we can repel the truth by no other pretense, we escape by attributing bitterness, impatience, intemperance, to our adversaries."
--Martin Luther, On Christian Liberty
